Carol Bowie Brandt died suddenly and unexpectedly on August 13. She was born on Halloween, 62 years before. All her life she lived the trick or treat sense of fun and mischief reflected in her birthday. Carol grew up in Omaha, NE, where she graduated from Brownell-Talbot preparatory school before attending college at Chatham University in Pittsburgh Pennsylvania. On her first day as a freshman at Chatham while her classmates were quaking in their dorm rooms at the prospect of college, she knocked loudly at the President's door to announce, "I'm Carol Bowie and you're going to be hearing about me." He invited her in and they became lifelong friends. That was Carol. Not afraid of anyone or any situation, quick to befriend people of all ages, reputation and background. Carol went on to get her Master's in Chemistry from Purdue University, after which she worked for many years guiding several drug companies throughout the world in computer system compliance of drug manufacture and distribution. Carol was predeceased by her parents, Mary and Rusty. She is survived by her beloved family of four horses, two German Shepherds, two bloodhounds, and two zorses; also by a sister, Joan Brown; two brothers, Scott Bowie and Russ Bowie; and five nieces and nephews, whom she persistently spoiled by gifting them the toys and games that would most aggravate her siblings with noise and stains. A MEMORIAL SERVICE will be held near her home in Garner, North Carolina, at a later date.
