Marilu Dennies Bowler

Marilu Dennies Bowler married her high school sweetheart Dale Kevin Bowler the summer of her junior year (1972). They recently celebrated their 37th anniversary.

They have 7 kids and 3 grandkids:
Malani Ann (36) lives in Utah with her daughter, Isabeau Ivanova (10).
Virgina (Ginny) Annett (34) lives in Alaska with her hubby (who is now in Iraq) and daughter, Kaylynn Michelle (11).
Kevin Dale (30) lives in AZ with his wife and son, Daulton Charles (10).
Katie Danelle (20) still lives at home but is engaged and may be leaving the nest soon.
Sara Louise (17) will be a senior in high school.
Rebeca (Beca) Jean (15) will be a sophomore.
Casandra (Cassie) Marie (12) will be in 7th grade.

They have called many places home. While Dale was serving in the Army (1973-1976) they were stationed in Colorado and in Germany.

In 1977 Dale unfortunately lost his leg in an industrial accident. For the next couple of years Marilu lovingly nursed him back to health. It was during this time she realized that nursing was a passion so in 1986 she became and LPN.

They moved to Dugway Proving Grounds in 1992. Then in 1999 they moved to
Huachuca City, Arizona, where they currently reside. One month prior to moving to Arizona Marilu was diagnosed with breast cancer.
She is currently a 10 year cancer survivor.

Her hobbies include:
Knitting, crocheting, counted cross stitching, sewing, quilting, ceramics, charcoal sketching, poetry writing, soap making, camping, reading and let’s not forget remodeling. Marilu along with her husband and son (the electrician) took on the task of completely redoing their kitchen and master bath as well as putting tile throughout their home.

They provide a home to 2 dogs, 2 cats, 7 goldfish, 1 turtle, 2 parakeets, and about 25 finches.
