Beverlee Bowman Price: 1937-2017

Oct 31, 2017

Beverlee Bowman Price, 80, passed peacefully from this life into the next from complications of surgery. She lived a full and wonderful life. She loved to travel the world and made friends everywhere she went.

She traveled to Hawaii frequently and made trips to England, France, Belgium, and Ireland. She traveled to Hawaii in June 2016 to see her grandson, Dane, get married on the beach.

Beverlee was born in Gig Harbor on April 20, 1937 to Clayton P. and Marie K. Bowman and grew up in Manchester, Washington. She graduated from South Kitsap High School in 1955 and obtained her associate in arts at Olympic College and her bachelor’s of art at Evergreen College.

She married Jerry Phipps in 1956 and had her two daughters, Terre and Tami. She later married her second husband, Charlie Price, in 1980.

Beverlee is survived by her husband, Charles A. Price III; her daughters Terre (Jan) Skelly of Bremerton and Tami Freeman of Chimacum; stepdaughter, Cindy (Abbas) Aalami of Mukilteo; grandchildren Justin Serry of Bremerton, Dane (Stephanee) Allen of Marysville, and Soraya and Soheil Aalami, both of Mukilteo; her brother-in-law, LC Stidham, of Arlington; her beloved cat, Myla; and many dear friends all over the world.

She was predeceased by her parents and her brother, Randy Bowman.

Beverlee’s passions were photography, writing and books. She wrote articles for magazines and newspapers for many years, which included her own photos. She also worked in television. She turned her passion for writing to a passion for writing poetry. We plan to publish her poems posthumously.

Beverlee will be remembered as an elegant and engaging person, for her photography and poems and her love of travel and meeting new people. She is now swimming in Hawaii with the dolphins.

At her request, we are going to spread her ashes in Hawaii, the San Juan Islands and Iceland. An open house celebration of life will be held 4-6 p.m. Sunday, Nov. 5, at Café’ Louvre, 210 Fifth Ave. S, Edmonds. In lieu of flowers, memorial donations can be made to the Kitsap County Humane Society or the animal rescue group of your choice.
