Description

Portrait of Anna Mae (Hollar) Bowman Dellinger as a young woman with a flower in her hair.

Anna Mae was born in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, but moved to Shenandoah County as a young child. Her parents were Aden Albert Hollar and Catherine Rebecca Fadeley. By 1940, she lived with her widowed mother, older brother, and grandmother (Julia A. Fadeley) on a farm west of Edinburg.

She married Harold Bishop Bowman (1922-1982) in October 1946. His parents were Boyd Miley and Virginia Pearl (Grandstaff) Bowman. At that time, she was a 19-year old beautician and her husband was a laborer. They had two children together before divorcing in 1961.

In 1977, Anna Mae married again. Dwight Elmo Dellinger (1919-2003) was born in Virginia to Charles Cecil and Nellie Verl (Will) Dellinger. He was a widow living in Edinburg when he and Anna Mae married.

Both are buried in Edinburg.
