Wilma Spradlin Conaway Hannah
1935-2017

Wilma Spradlin Conaway Hannah died in Palmetto, Fla., on April 1, 2017.
She was born in Johnson County in 1935 and was the daughter of Shay Spradlin and Jewell Tackett Spradlin McKenzie. She attended Oil Springs High School where she graduated with honors at the age of 16. She graduated from Mayo Technical College in Paintsville with the degree in Cosmetology. She opened her first beauty shop at the age of 18 in Piketon, Ohio on Pike Hill.
Wilma had the entrepreneurial spirit and owned numerous businesses over the years, as well as selling Mary Kay, New You Cosmetics, and Sloppy Joe clothing. She owned a ladies clothing store in the sixties and has several beauty shops throughout the years, including Body Works Beauty Shop still in operation in Piketon today.
Wilma worked in Toledo, Ohio, as the Dean of Warner’s Beauty College and attended numerous styling classes including Robert Franc’s School of Advanced Hair Styling in Columbus, Ohio.

Wilma had an eye for architecture and renovated several dilapidated structures into apartments, doing much of the work herself. She ran her rental business primarily by her herself until her death. She was an independent, strong, hard-working woman. Wilma spoke her mind and told you what she thought. Someone said to me that you always knew where you stood with Wilma, if you treated her right she would treat you right, and if you backed her into a corner, she would come out swinging.
Wilma was married to James R. Conaway from 1957-1963, and they had two daughters. Wilma is survived by her daughter Rhonda Conaway Taylor and husband, Henry Taylor; their children, Michael M.

Michael Jairus Bowen, age 38, was born March 13, 1978 and went to be with his Heavenly Father on November 16, 2016 following a cruel battle with Pancreatic Cancer. 

Leaving behind two young sons, Christopher Jacob, age 10 and Joseph Michael, age 7 and their mother, Kristen Kidd Bowen; his parents, Woodford and Judy Reed Bowen; one brother, John Woodford Bowen; two sisters, Mindi Bowen and Kimberly Spatola; one brother-in-law, Philip Spatola; three nephews, Blake and Nicholas Spatola, Keygan Pelfrey; and one niece, Maci Bowen, along with a host of family and friends.
