About Evergreen

Published August 13, 2008
I am Barbara Aymond Bowman, I grew up in Evergreen on Rabbit Lane and attended Evergreen Elementary and graduated from BHS.  After high school, Shirley Goudeau and I moved to New Orleans and met up with Patsy Roy and Peggy Terry who were already there. I met my husband Thomas of 41 years while I was working in New Orleans and he was waiting for the Hospital Ship headed for Vietnam. 
After he was discharged from the Navy we lived in Tioga, La until 1986 when we moved to Upstate New York, where Tom is originally from.  We now reside in a small hamlet...Cedarville in the beautiful Mohawk Valley.  We are approximately 200 miles from New York City.  
Tom and I have three sons...and three lovely daughter-in-laws.  Our oldest son, Tommy, is a department manager in sporting goods in Oneida Wal-Mart.  Our middle son, Todd, is the one who lives life to the fullest and has the broken bones to prove it (currently recovering from a compound fracture of his right leg), is in construction in New Jersey.  Our youngest, Travis, is a Tulane graduate and received his master's degree at SUNY-Albany, is currently employed by the State of New York as a Historic Preservationist and is a Professor of History at Columbia-Greene Community College.  
All three our of our sons are avid sportsmen..guess that comes from their Louisiana roots. We are fortunate to have some of our family visit us, most recently my brother Harold and sister-in-law Carolyn just this July. I do not visit home very often, but when I do I always visit the graveyard in Evergreen, where our parents and many of our family members are buried.  I have fond memories of  the Church of the Little Flower as it was a  large part of my childhood and I was married in that beautiful church. My e-mail address is barbgfa@yahoo.com.
Pelican Footnote:  Barbara is the daughter of Clifton and Lena Galland Aymond.  Dr. Harold Aymond and Cecil "Pete" Aymond are her brothers.  She graduated from EES in 1961 and Bunkie High School in 1965.
