Kris (Burleson) Bowyer, 54, of Torrington, Wyoming, passed away after a lengthy illness of Multiple Sclerosis on Saturday, June 30, 2012. Kris was born September 4, 1957, in Lakeview, Oregon, and was the daughter of Tom and Barbara Burleson. She attended Los Alamos High School until her family moved to Roswell, New Mexico, where she graduated from Roswell High School in 1976. She attended college in San Antonio, Texas, where she pursued an Associate's degree in the medical field. On April, 26, 1980, Kris married the love of her life, Clay Bowyer of Los Alamos, New Mexico. The couple resided in Los Alamos for seven years where Kris was employed as a medical assistant. They later moved to Torrington, Wyoming, in 1993 where she continued to work at Community Hospital for three years and then forced to quit due to Multiple Sclerosis that she was diagnosed with in 1994. Kris enjoyed several activities including camping and fishing with her family, cross stitch, sewing, crocheting, and gardening. She also participated in the Junior Olympics for swimming.
She is survived by her father, Tom Burleson; husband Clay Bowyer; daughter Kendra Bowyer Dugger and husband Jeromie; daughter Rebecca Bowyer; and grandchildren Calista, Carleigh, and Audrina, all of Torrington, Wyoming. Preceding Kris in death was her mother Barbara Burleson (Nobles). A Celebration of Life memorial will be held at a later date. Kris's requests were that memorials go to the United Methodist Church of Torrington, Wyoming, or the Multiple Sclerosis Foundation.
