Jill Allen Rowe, Adair County, KY native (1969-2019)

Jill Allen Rowe, of Bowling Green, passed away Monday, June 10, 2019 having attained the age of 49 years, 9 months and 23 days.

The Adair County native attended Adair County High School. She was born Monday, August 18, 1969 to Haskin "Hack" and Gretha Lou Rowe of Columbia. No memorial service is planned at this time.

In addition to her parents, Jill was preceded in death by one son, Brandon Brown.

She is survived by her son, Ryan and (wife) Sairah Schrage, grandchildren Haedn, Marissa and Ryan, Jr; step-mother Cynthia Rowe; a sister Mindy Ward; a brother Shannon Rowe; a half-sister Terri Murphy; many cousins and her loyal companion Boo Dog.

With her positive outlook on life, her sweet and sassy attitude, her love for Ryan, Brandon, family and friends, it was hard to see and comprehend the internal struggles that she battled daily.

She was so very fortunate to have the love and support of those that understood her struggles... those that caught her when she fell and helped her get back up, those who reminded her daily that she was loved, were firm but gentle in helping to keep her moving in the right direction.

You made her soul smile and her daily struggles worth the fight: Frank and Lauren Tabor, Rick Embry, Nick McFarland, The 13th Street Clubhouse friends, Christy Chrone, Jason Rowland, Martha Lyons, Clarence Crabtree, Holly Bradford, Floyd Jones, Lori Ebert, Frances, Brianna and many, many other wonderful friends and relationships that she has been lucky enough to establish along the way through AA and other support groups.

Donations can be made in her memory to 13th Street Clubhouse, 1013 East 13th Avenue, Bowling green, Ky 42101 or to Daytona Outreach Center, 612 Ridgewood Avenue, Holly Hill, FL 32117.

J.C. Kirby and Son Broadway Chapel, Bowling Green, KY, in charge of the arrangements.
