February 1, 1952 - October 18, 2021
Jackie Margaret Bowdon, age 69, of Royal Oak, passed away on October 18, 2021. Beloved wife of Frank Bowdon III, to whom she married August 4, 1973 and spent her remaining 48 years with. Loving mother of Ben Bowdon, Thomas Bowdon and daughter-in-law Megan Bowdon. Loving grammy to Frankie Bowdon. Jackie was strong, witty, caring as they come, and constantly thinking of the people she loved most. She was mom (or ‘Mrs. B’) to half the neighborhood, for two generations. Her combination of good will and firm delivery remains instilled in every person who came through the back door and greeted her, as she sat in her beloved wooden rocking chair. She loved classic movies, music with soul, art with or without intention, animals of all kinds and always appreciated the small things. She was an extremely talented artist herself, serving as one of the top florists in Michigan for over three decades, orchestrating lavish arrangements for hundreds of key moments in the lives of others. She had a natural eye for beauty and shared that with everyone around her, whenever she could. She loved to travel, especially to Europe, and would revel in pointing out the places she’d been when they appeared in movies or television. She used to draw maps in one of her first jobs, but always preferred to go the road less traveled. Jackie will be extremely missed by her family, friends, and everyone who had the chance to know her. Memorial service will be held on Friday, October 22, from 6 – 8 pm at Wm. Sullivan & Son Funeral Home, 705 W. 11 Mile Rd. (four blocks east of Woodward), Royal Oak, with memory sharing at 7 pm. Celebration of life to follow at the Elks Club of Royal Oak. In lieu of flowers, the family requests that you please consider a memorial contribution in Jackie’s memory to the Michigan Humane Society. Donations will be collected at the service.
