Bowling, Katherine, Anne, 60, daughter of the late Evelyn (Hulton) Bowling.In the words of her nephew, Noah, "she is now one of the sweet angels"... Kathy was briefly hospitalized with pneumonia at RI Hospital on Saturday, October 12th and was moved into respiratory ICU on the 13th. She passed peacefully in the early morning hours of the 16th and now enjoys eternal life with her God and many loving family members who have gone before her.Kathy is the first among the "4 K's" and in her mother's words, she was the "special K". Her siblings (Ken, Kevin, and Karen) love her and miss her deeply. Kathy was also blessed with an extended family of cousins, nieces and nephews who will miss the brightness and loving presence she shared at any gathering. There are many descriptors that come to mind when thinking of Kathy; some include happy, curious, righteous, loving, God-fearing, kind, and exuberant. Kathy was a well known and well loved resident of the Park View Nursing Home, 31 Parade Street, Providence, RI. She happily lived there for many years, with friends, a caring staff, her many books (including those about the animals she loved), her artwork, and her music (which included a wide variation from Celtic to Willie Nelson to Elvis, to Gregorian Chant and more). Although Kathy may miss her monthly fruit basket from "Harry & David", she will certainly revel in the heavenly feast awaiting her.In keeping with her mother's wishes, Kathy will be laid to rest with Evelyn at the RI Veterans Cemetery. The Bowling family is grateful for the years of compassionate care provided by Park View Nursing Home and the sensitive assistance with final arrangements offered by the Cremation Society of Rhode Island.A funeral Mass will be offered for Kathy at St. Catherine's Catholic Church, 3252 Post Road, Warwick, RI at 9:00 am, Saturday, November 9, 2013. Following the Mass, family and friends are invited to join in a graveside memorial service at the RI Veterans Cemetery in Exeter. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made, in Kathy's name, to the American Diabetes Association www.diabetes.org or the Prader-Willi Syndrome Association www.pwsausa.org.
