Eleanor Bowman, wife of FEBC Co-Founder Dr. Bob Bowman, entered the presence of her Lord and Savior on Monday, December 14, just days after her 100th birthday.
For more than 76 years, Eleanor was Dr. Bowman’s love, inspiration, and partner in the Lord’s work. The Bowmans were married at Havens Court Colonial Church in Oakland, CA, in May 1937. Dr. Bowman entered God’s presence on March 11, 2014, after a brief illness.
In announcing Eleanor’s passing, FEBC stated, “We are so thankful for her commitment to FEBC and her decades of sacrificial service to ensure that the Gospel would be preached throughout the world.”
Eleanor is survived by her two sons, Jim and Steve; six grandchildren; and three great grandchildren.
