Magdalene Marie King Raisch Bowermaster was born on March 30, 1920 to Aaron and Ida King in Flanagan, Illinois. She went home to be with her Savior Jesus Christ on Saturday, July 1, 2017.
She was preceded in death by her first husband David Raisch, her second husband Charles Bowermaster, her parents, her son Robert Raisch, a granddaughter, and a great grandson. She was also preceded in death by her brother Walter King and her sister Mildred Raisch.

She was a homemaker and former typesetter and Miamisburg News and Dayton Daily Newspapers. Sewing, cooking, gardening, and collecting dolls were some of her many interests. She attended and enjoyed many special friendships in the Nazarene Church, the Miamisburg First Church of God, and Christian Tabernacle/Faircreek during her years in Ohio and Liberty Baptist Church in Ellenboro, during her later years. Always first on her list of priorities was her relationship with Christ and caring about her ever growing family. She regularly sent birthday cards and remembered everyone at Christmas.
A "Celebration of Life" event will be announced by the family in the near future. In lieu of flowers, the family requests donations be made to Child Evangelism Fellowship Foothills Chapter, P.O. Box 797, Boiling Springs, NC 28017. Crowe's Mortuary served the family.
