While she admits she doesn’t have a lot of visitors, she still enjoys visits from a family of raccoons, who are tame enough to eat out of her hand every evening.

Bowden says life tends to move quicker and the years flash by as she gets older. She prefers to live by a simply mantra.
“I have lots of friends, a good church family from the same church I’ve been going to for 85 years and I have enough to live on,” Bowden said. “What more could you want out of life?”
