Nora Lou [Wilson] Fowler passed from this life on March 15, 2003, at the age of
94 years, in New Caney, Texas, where she resided at the time of her
death. Sister Nora was born June
16, 1908, in Waxahachie, Texas. She
was a resident of Dallas, Texas for most of her life, before her ailing health
required her to relocate near her family. Sister
Nora's husband, Elder William West Fowler, had been the pastor of the Dallas
Church for many years before his death in 1956.
She is survived by her brother,
Weldon Wilson and his wife, Patsy, whose care and attention for our precious
sister in Christ in the last months of her life will long be remembered; her
brother, R. C. Wilson and wife, Adelle, and her sister, Pearl.
Sister Nora was a member of the First
Primitive Baptist Church of Dallas, and had been a Primitive Baptist for
over 65 years. Elder
Clifford Gowens, her pastor at the First Primitive Baptist Church of Dallas,
conducted the funeral service on March 19, 2003.
Her burial was in the Goldthwaite Memorial Cemetery, in Goldthwaite,
Sister Nora was truly a stalwart in
the Dallas Church, and attended regularly until her health no longer permitted
it. Her strong friendship, her warm
fellowship, and her love toward all of the members at Dallas is a precious
memory that we will always cherish.
We miss her greatly , and while we are saddened by her passing, we
rejoice in knowing that she now is in the presence of her Lord and Savior, Jesus
Our prayer is that Sister Fowler's
family finds great comfort and
solace in the knowledge that she is forever in the presence of her Master, our
Lord and Redeemer. We will look to
that day when we too shall be with our loved ones in His august presence singing
praises to His great name!
