June Olivia Bowers Bennett was born January 10, 1945 in West Chester, Pennslyvania; she went home to be with the Lord surrounded by her loving family on Wednesday, August 28, 2019, following a brief and valiant battle with pancreatic cancer. She was the daughter of the late Dorothy E. Bowers and Dallas E. Bowers
June was born in West Chester, PA, and grew up in Oxford, PA. She was a graduate of Oxford Area High School, Cheyney University, and Temple University. She was intelligent, hardworking, feisty, funny, and loving.
June pursued several different careers, including social work and teaching high school English. She found her niche working as a senior claims adjuster at Allstate Insurance. She spent 35 years at Allstate, and retired in November 2003.
Nothing made June happier than being with her family. Whether traveling to support her daughter and grandkids or jet setting with her sister she was always ready for an adventure. June loved the holidays and celebrating with good food and lots of laughs. June’s love for her daughter Libby was only outmatched by her admiration and pride in Perry and Dallas and watching them grow and succeed.
June is survived by her devoted daughter, Libby Bowers of Coatesville, PA; two adored grandchildren, Perry Bowers of Philadelphia, PA and Dallas Faison of Baltimore, MD; and two loving sisters, Carolyn Garner of Elkton, MD, and Angie Bowers of Newark, DE and a host of nieces and nephews as well as family and friends.
