Services for former Gov. Otis “Doc” Bowen will be held at 11 a.m. Friday at St. Paul's Lutheran Church in Bremen, Mishler Funeral Home on Bremen announced Sunday.

Bowen, who won 20 of 21 primary and general elections between 1952 and 1976 to cement his place as one of Indiana's most revered public servants, died Saturday night at a nursing home in Donaldson, a community about 25 miles south of South Bend that is nearBowen's hometown of Bremen.

A two-term Indiana governor from 1973 to 1981, Bowen, a Republican, capped 37 years of public service in 1989 after serving as secretary of Health and Human Services during President Reagan's second term. It completed quite a journey – he was first elected to public office in 1952 as Marshall County coroner.
