Synita Elmarie Bowers

Private services for Synita Elmarie (Tillman-Faulkner) Bowers, 92, of Sand Springs OK, were held Sunday, October 31st, 2021.

Synita was born February 19, 1929, in Pampa TX to John Buford and Robbie C (Doss) Tillman. She passed away on October 26, 2021, in Sand Springs OK.

Early in her life, she went by Elmarie and worked as a waitress for 18 years, spending most of this time working at the Charl Mont Restaurant, which she greatly enjoyed. Elmarie loved to go dancing and listening to the “Old” Country Music with her husband Preston Faulkner at the Cain’s Ballroom. Later in life, she went by Synita and enjoyed going pheasant hunting and traveling outdoors with her husband, Ray Bowers. She enjoyed many simplicities later in life such as watching television with her grandchildren and great-grandchildren or watching the hummingbirds from her porch and enjoying nature.

Synita is survived by her sister, Judy Faye Proctor; children, Mary Faulkner, and Jeri and Jimmy Campbell; grandchildren, Kim and Jerry, Christa and David, Michele, Synita, Tony, and Katlin and Jonathan; great-grandchildren, Ryan and Marilyn, Christie and Jake, Courtney and Emile, Santana, Coleton, Tanner, Tieranee, Tyler, Crew, and Tatiana; and many other relatives and friends.

She was preceded in death by her parents, John and Robbie Tillman, and stepmother; brothers, Dwight Tillman and J.B. Tillman; first husband of 30 years, Preston Faulkner; second husband also of 30 years, Ray Bowers; son, Louis Lee; and daughters, Martha Ann and Reba Leslie; and great-grandson, Jacob Thomas.
