Joan Faye Fowler

JOAN FAYE FOWLER, age 81 of Waseca, died on Monday, September 24, 2018 at Foxdale Memory Care in Waseca.

Born on June 8, 1937, Joan was the daughter of Joseph and Phannie (Severn) Stewart.  On October 2, 1952 Joan married Walter Charles Fowler at the First Baptist Church in Glenwood, Iowa.  In addition to a career of over thirty years at the E.F.

Joan is survived by her husband, Walter of Waseca; two daughters, Jacqueline (Lynn) Carlson of Waseca and Cynthia Fowler of Owatonna; one son, Charles Fowler of Oklahoma City, OK; five grandchildren; ten great-grandchildren; and two sisters, Virginia Newman and Mabel Taylor both of Council Bluffs, IA.  She was preceded in death by her parents; two brothers; three sisters; two nephews; and one great-nephew.
