Gail Hollingsworth Bowes

April 19, 1945 - January 26, 2022

Gail Hollingsworth Bowes, 76, of Hendersonville, went to her heavenly home on Wednesday, January 26, 2022.  She was preceded in death by her mother, Naomi Stepp; father Ray Hollingsworth; step father George Briles; brother Gary; sister Pamela; and her son Brandon, at the age of 31.

Gail worked for Braun Engineering in Detroit, MI, for 22 years before retiring and then managed an apartment complex in Farmington Hills, MI, for 13 years before returning to her beloved North Carolina Mountains in 2005.

She returned home to East Flat Rock after living in Michigan for 47 years.  She has left behind many close friends and family up north, as well as the south.

Gail is survived by two sons, Chuck and Joe, many “adopted” grandchildren, and many cousins.  Special remembrance to her very special cousins, Don and Barb Stepp in NC, and Carla Smith in AL.  Gail will be remembered for her big smile and laughter and her readiness to help others in need.

In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to Mothers Against Drunk Driving.

No services are planned at this time.
