Obituary for Sharon Irene Bowden

Sharon Irene Bowden, 79, passed away of natural causes peacefully at her home on July 16, 2019, with her family by her side. Sharon was born August 5, 1939 in Rupert, Idaho to Don and Neva Gardner. She grew up in the south part of Pocatello as the middle child with two brothers, Larry and William “Billy” Gardner. She attended Pocatello High School where she met the love of her life, Dale Bowden. They were married on July 13, 1956, were blessed with 5 children, and later divorced. Sharon was always surrounded by wonderful, loyal, and long-time friends. She continually had a smile and a joyful, contagious personality. Sharon was employed by the school district for almost 30 years as a bus driver and an aide. She truly loved her job and the children. She considered her fellow employees part of her extended family. She lived life to the fullest, doing what made her happy. Sharon truly loved each of her grandchildren and great-grandchildren no matter how far away they lived or how often she saw them. She felt blessed to have her children stay so close and always involved in her life. She was the center of the family and always insisted on family gatherings. She will be greatly missed by all that knew and loved her.
Sharon was preceded in death by her parents, Don and Neva Gardner; brother, William Gardner; daughter, Dalene Bowden; grandson, Taylor Bowden; grandson, Scot Burrup; and great-grandson, Carter Roske-Zahm.
Sharon is survived by her remaining children, Laurie (Matthew) Zahm, Marcie (Timothy) Alston, Alyn (Tina) Bowden, and Misty Bowden, as well as 12 grandchildren and 22 great-grandchildren.
Sharon will be honored at a Celebration of Life at the Lower Ross Park Pavilion on Monday, August 5th from 6-8 PM.
