Marsha Naomi Bowen

20-Mar-1954 - 10-Mar-2023

Obituary Overview

In loving memory

With broken hearts we announce the sudden passing of Marsha Bowen at the age of 68. With family by her side she passed away peacefully.

Marsha was an incredible daughter to Bob and Fumi Toyata, a loyal wife to George, and an inspiring mother to Julia (Jeff). She was the cherished sister of Rod (Debbie), adoring aunt to Robbie, Ryan (Jessie), Jesse, and Joey.

With a smile that could touch your heart, and an immense amount of wisdom, she is loved by so many who will miss her dearly. With over 30 years of her career serving as a Vice President of Finance, she would tell you her favourite job was Nana to Isabel and Maxwell. Caring for them was the light of her life, and her first priority was always family.

In her memory, a visitation will be held from 12:00-1:00 p.m. on Saturday April 8, 2023 at the Glen Oaks Funeral Home. A Funeral Service will be held in the Chapel at 1 p.m. with a reception to follow.  

As Marsha loved to spend time at the library with her grandchildren, in lieu of flowers donations to Waterloo Public Library would be appreciated.

Julia, I was both saddened and shocked to hear of Marsha's passing. In the little time I knew Marsha, when she was in Midland, I realized how much she admired and loved You, Jeff, Izzy and Max. You were her whole life. I am sure you miss her dearly. Please accept my deepest condolences.
