Denise C. Bowers

Denise C. Bowers, 66, a resident of Lumberport, lost the courageous battle to cancer in United Hospital Center on Monday (Dec. 31, 2012) after a two-year battle.

She was born Nov. 8, 1946, in Philippi, a daughter of the late Thomas and Betty (Nutter) Poling.

She was united in marriage on Feb. 14, 2009, to John H. Bowers who survives.

She was preceded in death by husband, Ronald C. Ashbaker.

Denise retired from the Clarksburg Water Board as an office administrator. She also worked for Siegrest-White Law Firm in Clarksburg as an administrative assistant to James Martin, and at Robinson & McElwee Law Firm as an office clerk.

Denise enjoyed gardening, working in the yard, collecting antiques and loved her dog Kema. She attended the Lumberport Baptist Church.

Friends will be received at the Wright Funeral Home, 216 N. Walnut St., Philippi, from 5 to 8 p.m. Friday and from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturday.

  • Nuke-arms grade stock has been cut by Iran

    Iran has converted three quarters of a nuclear stockpile that it could have turned quickly into weapons-grade uranium into less volatile forms and is well on the way toward transforming the rest, the U.N. atomic agency reported Thursday.
    The development — agreed to by Iran under a nuclear deal it struck late last year with six world powers — leaves Tehran with substantially less of the 20-percent enriched uranium that it would need for a nuclear warhead.
