Nancy was the daughter of Millard Junior Bowen and Minnie Betty Ross Bowen and was born on February 8th, 1956 in Williamson, WV. She was one of six children and loved her siblings dearly. She worked as a coal miner at PM Charles in Rawl, WV. She was one of the first female miners and had to fight for her rights to become employed by the mines as women were not considered to be miners at that time. After working for the mines she worked for Northfork Southern Railroad as an engineer for the Pocahontas Division. While working full time she was also a loving devoted mother to four children. She cared for her son Christopher who became paralyzed at the age of 3 until he passed away in 1995. She then transferred to Salisbury, NC to continue her career with the Railroad. After retiring she moved to Columbus, OH in 2002.

She loved spending time with her children and grandchildren whom she loved dearly. She enjoyed to cook for her family and her favorite meal was Pinto beans and cornbread.
