Mrs. Fowler spent her last 25 years with her husband. They relocated permanently to Kenai in 1996 from Anchorage.
She was a member of the United Methodist Church of the New Covenant in Kenai, from where she received much support and prayer.
"Kenai had always provided the best life had to offer for them, first to fish, then to garden and enjoy family and friends. Lois supported and enjoyed the Kenai Senior Center and many times participated in fundraising, quilting, line dancing and many of the activities that went on at 'the center.' Lois has fallen asleep and awaits the return of her Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ," her family said.
