Our beloved MIRANDA NICOLE BOWLING passed away Sunday, April 25, 2021 from her battle with addiction. She fought this addiction to the end. She is free from the pain and struggle of the addiction and rests with those who have passed before her. We are certain if she could speak for herself, she would plead with others to seek help and recovery as she was doing for herself.
Miranda was born August 20, 1997 in Charleston, WV. She grew up and lived in Cross Lanes, WV. While growing into her adult years she gained the many nicknames of Em Jr., Sissy, Punkin and Turtle.
