Aalyiah Nicole Bowen

February 24, 1999 — March 9, 2021


Aalyiah Nicole Bowen, 22, of Corning is now walking and talking in the streets of heaven. Her beautiful soul left its earthly body in the afternoon hours of Tuesday, March 9, 2021 surrounded by her loving family.

Aalyiah was born the angel baby to her parents, James and Marie (Irvin) Bowen on February 24, 1999.

She was a miracle child, having survived and beaten the odds several times. Aalyiah battled cerebral palsy, even with the chains of her disease, she will always be remembered for the deep belly laughs, and bright smiles. Her parents spent a lifetime being sure that Aalyiah was wrapped in joy, her innocent love is and will be deeply missed.
