Maxine Elizabeth Bowles

July 8, 1944 - Oct. 3, 2020

Maxine Bowles was granted her angel wings on October 3, 2020.

She was born in Greeley, Colorado, to Ester and Orville Grossaint. She was the youngest of four children. She met her husband Donald in Salt Lake City where they made their home together and raised five children.

Maxine loved hunting, fishing, camping, and cuddling her grandchildren and great-grandchildren. She loved being surrounded by her family and starting water fights with them —while hiding in her camper, yelling “don’t you get water in here!”

One of her greatest joys was decorating for Christmas and bringing her family together. She was fond of crafts, loved spoiling her dog Gidget and was a devoted Denver Broncos fan.

She is preceded in death by her husband Donald Bowles; her parents, Orville and Ester Grossaint; her brothers, Donald and Larry Grossaint; her sister Beverly Grossaint; her grandchildren, James Stumpp and Marcus Murie; and her son-in-law Nick Mills.

She is survived in death by her children, Randy (June Garcia) Bowles, Rock Springs; Mike (Jacque) Bowles, Rock Springs; Cindy (Dave) Wardell, Lovell; David (Gayle) Bowles, Rock Springs; Robyn (Stephen) McCarty, Rock Springs; 37 grandchildren; 35 great-grandchildren; 1 great-great-grandchild; and several nieces and nephews.

Graveside services will be held at 10 a.m. Saturday, Oct. 10, 2020, at the Diamondville Cemetery.
