Longtime Kittitas County pastor who died of COVID-19 complications was a friend to many with a ‘wicked sense of humor’

From Seattle-

Grace Episcopal Church’s Rev. Andrea Bowman was many things to many people.

The longtime Kittitas County resident was an educator, a school board member, a woman of God, a friend and colleague and much, much more. If she could have hand-picked a time to leave this world, Palm Sunday certainly would have been a special day, commemorating Jesus’ triumphant entry into Jerusalem where people put palm fronds down in front of his path.

The Rev. Bowman, 73, became the first Kittitas County resident to die from complications related to the virus that causes COVID-19. She died at 4:15 p.m. April 5, Palm Sunday, at the University of Washington ICU unit in Seattle.

Her time of death will be forever overshadowed by memories of the life she lived, longtime friend and former colleague Dr. Linda Beath said in a telephone interview from Tucson, Arizona.
