I love when I stumble upon an obituary for a family member that is well written and informative.  The following obituary is for my Great-Grandmother Inez Bowlen Gardiner.  As the obit states she was riding in the car with my grandparents while taken ill and rushed to the hospital. What it neglects to mention is that she was holding my father, Bernard L. Gardiner in her arms.
