Funeral arrangements for the late Tori Bowie have been announced by the Olympic athlete’s family.

Services for Frentorish “Tori” Bowie, who passed away on Wednesday, May 3, will be held this Saturday, May 13, at 10 a.m. at True Vine Missionary Baptist Church in Brandon.

Bowie grew up in Rankin County and graduated from Pisgah High School before attending Southern Miss from 2008-2012. While a Golden Eagle, Bowie earned All-American titles in sprinting on three separate occasions.

After college, the Mississippi native took her talents to the largest global stage and won three medals at the 2016 Olympic Games in Rio De Janeiro, Brazil, including gold in the 4x100m relay, silver in the 100 meters, and bronze in the 200 meters.

Bowie currently holds the distinction of being the last American female to win the 100-meters race on an international stage during the 2017 World Championships in London.

The cause of Bowie’s death has not been released at this time and her management agency is asking people to respect the family’s privacy.

Flowers, cards and tokens of love and support can be sent to Dean’s Memorial Funeral Home at 745 Highway 468, Brandon, Miss. 39042.
