Nancy J. Bowman, age 67, of Rhinelander, passed away on Sunday, April 19, 2020, at home, with her family at her side. She was born on Aug. 4, 1952, in Rhinelander, to Adam and June M. (Draeger) Antonuk. Nancy was a lifelong resident of Rhinelander. She graduated from Rhinelander High School in 1970 and then attended beauty school. She was united in marriage to Hugh R. Bowman on Nov. 11, 1972. This past November they celebrated their 47th wedding anniversary.
In her younger years Nancy was a talented seamstress. She also enjoyed working with ceramics and had made some beautiful pieces throughout the years. After the joy of raising her own children, Nancy cherished her new title of "Nana". She loved every minute of time spent with her grandchildren and was proud of the fact that "there was always an adventure to be had at Nana's house".
Nancy will be dearly missed by those who survive her; her husband Hugh, her mother June Antonuk, her children Stacy J. (Jon) Bandow and Bradley S. Bowman, her grandchildren Trevor, Ethan, Camille and Ayden, other family and many friends. She was preceded in death by her father, Adam Antonuk.
