Teresa Gail Clark Bowman Watkins, 60, passed away Saturday, November 20, 2021, only hours after her loving mother, Joyce Horton Clark. The two walked hand-in-hand to join her doting father, Dennis Cade Clark, and enduring companion, Ringo, among a myriad of other family and friends who have gone before. She spent her career and life in general caring for others, and her compassion, fierce love and endless strength to smile through even the hardest of battles left an everlasting impression on all she met.
She is survived by her husband, Jim Watkins; sons: Cade Bowman (Kristin), Heath Bowman (Alyssa); sisters: Denise Clark, Cindy Southard; mother and father-in-law, James Sr. and Jackie Watkins; sisters-in-law: Lisa Johnson and Terri Journigan (Buddy); many loving nieces, nephews, great-nieces and great-nephews and her special furry friends: Little Bit and Orange Cat.
