Christine had many gifts which she shared with others - within her family, through her parish’s outreach to the poor, and by supporting her favorite charities. A favorite was the Southwest Indian Foundation, remembering the time she spent as a new nurse working in the nursery of a hospital on a Navajo reservation in Arizona. After marrying Bob she continued to use her nursing skills as a homemaker nurturing countless young and old through her talents and prayers.

Survivors include two sons, Ted Bowlds and Fr. Kent Bowlds; four daughters, Rita (Ronald) Munn, Sarah (Tim) Eades, Nancy (Warren) Irons and Martha (Earl) Winn. She has 23 grandchildren and 20 great grandchildren.

Her remains will be interred in Saint William Cemetery, Knottsville, KY. J.C. Kirby and Son, Lovers Lane Chapel, has been entrusted with arrangements. In lieu of flowers, donations in her honor can be given to the St. Vincent de Paul Society through Holy Spirit Catholic Church, Bowling Green.
