It is with great sorrow, the family of Deb Williams announces her peaceful passing on June 14, 2022, in her home at the Village at the Harbor. A resident of Friday Harbor since 2018, she has also resided in Sidney, Australia; Macomb, MI; Delaware, OH; and Stuart, FL.
Debbie, born October 11, 1942 in Clarksville, Arkansas was the daughter of Mary Emojean Flynn Bowman and Garland Bowman of Flint, Michigan.
A loving and devoted mother and grandmother, she is now joined with her only son, Timothy G. Hoke, who departed on February 3, 2021. She is survived by her daughter-in-law of 28 years, Pamela S Hoke; grandchildren: Alexander J. and Angela J. Hoke; her sister, Melba Bauer; brother Gary Bowman and her many nieces and nephews including Kimberly, Cindy, Mark, Heidi Bauer and Kristen Hoke Martin.
Deb was a marketing professional for most of her career, and went on many adventures, including living in Sydney, Australia. She was an exceptional golfer and a longtime volunteer for the Columbus Zoo. She was also a forever dog mother, now happily reunited with her departed four-legged companions, Hogan, Shine, and Shiloh.
She will be greatly missed. Currently, there will be a virtual candlelight ceremony held on Facebook during her cremation transition at Evans Funeral Chapel, and a Celebration of Life planned at Jackson's Beach, Friday Harbor in late August. More details will be available through Evans Funeral Chapel in Anacortes, WA.
