Lenora Gowen

Lenora Gowen age 98 of Coffeyville, passed away August 21, 2021 at the home of her great-granddaughter in Broken Arrow, OK.

Lenora was born in Stroud, OK on July 14, 1923 to John and Eva (Jackson) Harvey. She was raised in Nowata and attended local schools. On December 24, 1941 she married Claude Brown Gowen. To this union the couple was blessed with a daughter. During the war, Lenora worked in the laundry for the Army and also helped with any seamstress work that needed done. Lenora took care of the needs of the home, she enjoyed sewing, traveling, daily Bible readings, time at Grand Lake, and most importantly spending time with her grandchildren. Lenora was a very faithful and active member at Emmanuel Southern Baptist Church where she volunteered many years in the nursery. She lived her life by the Bible, she had a heart of gold and was always giving to those less fortunate than herself. Lenora was a bit stubborn but had a great sense of humor.

Lenora’s memories will live on with her grandchildren, Lori Bryant and Sandra Wintjen, great-grandchildren; Angelica Lara, Lorelei Wiles, Kelli Egermeier, James McGee, Cody Wintjen and Ivy Wintjen, and 15 great-great-grandchildren.

She now rests with her parents, her husband Claude, her daughter Patricia McGee and geart-great-grandson Declan Wintjen.
