Mrs. Pansy Mae Bowman Chaney passed away peacefully during the morning hours of Thursday, November 9, 2023, at the Joan and Howard Woltz Hospice Home in Dobson surrounded by her precious family. She was 87 years old. Mrs. Chaney was born June 3, 1936, in Surry County to the late Maggie Mae Felts and Tyrie Lyrine Bowman. Mrs. Chaney was the most wonderful mother, grandmother, sister and friend. She adored her family. She was a fantastic cook who loved nothing more than preparing a meal for the ones she loved. She retired from Renfro after many years of service. Mrs. Chaney was quick-witted and hilarious, always making those around her laugh. She loved to play tennis in her younger years and loved to shop up until the time her illness no longer allowed. Christmas was her most favorite holiday, as it meant a joyful time with family.
