Eleanor Edwenia Farr Bowerman, 78, precious daughter of the late James E. and Eleanor F. Farr, devoted wife, mother and grandmother, and treasured sister and friend, passed from this life into glory on July 1, 2017.

Eleanor grew up in the Berea community, and early in life became a faithful, supportive, military wife. She loved music, teaching piano and serving as a church pianist in many different places. She also enjoyed gardening, sewing and needlework. One of her biggest joys was including her extended family in vacations all over the country as well as fun time by the pool. She was an active community member and accomplished business woman.

She is survived by her husband, Richard A. Bowerman; her children, Eleanor Norma Bowerman and Richard A. Bowerman, Jr.; her granddaughter, Caitlyn Eleanor Bowerman; five brothers and sisters and their spouses; and numerous nieces and nephews.

A visitation will be held on Friday, July 7, 2017 at Thomas McAfee Funeral Home, Northwest from 12:00 p.m. until 1:15 p.m., with a funeral service to follow at 1:30 p.m. in the Northwest Chapel. A burial will follow at M.J. "Dolly" Cooper.

Eleanor always used her life to serve her Lord and others. So in her memory, the family requests that friends make donations to the Alzheimer's Association, 301 University Ridge # 5850, Greenville, SC 29601; the children's music program of a church of your choice; or the First Presbyterian Academy Scholarship Fund, 200 W. Washington Street, Greenville, SC 29601.
