    She is survived by her daughters Debbie Lemon and her husband Ed, Brenda Reece and her husband Steve, and her son, Jerry Bowman; her grandchildren Chrissy Flanigan and her husband Brian, Stacey McCumbee and her husband Jordan, Jessie Bowman, Katie Bowman, Matthew Bowman, Sammi Redwine, and Kyle Redwine; and 7 great-grandchildren. She is also survived by a sister Dorothy “Dot” Perry, a brother Leo Haft, and 7 nieces and nephews. She had many dear friends in Baltimore that she considered family.
