COWAN, Anne M. (nee Beers)
April 29, 1922 – March 2, 2014
Anne Cowan beloved mother, grandmother and great- grandmother, passed away peacefully at the Beverly
Center in Calgary on Sunday, March 2, 2014 at the age of 91 years.
Mom was one of sixteen children born to Mary and Purl Beers in Emerson, NB. Mom was an active member of
the First United Church, Maple Leaf Chapter No. 7 O.E.S., 702 Wing Air Force Association, Royal Canadian
Legion Steward Branch #4 and Lethbridge Senior Centre. She golfed for many years at Magrath Golf and
Country Club. Mom clogged well into her seventies which helped keep her attitude young and her bones
strong. Alzheimer’s claimed mom’s mind years ago but not her spirit or the sparkle in her eyes whenever
her great-grandchildren were present. She was well loved and will be missed and remembered for her
strength and her wonderful self- deprecating sense of humor.
Mom is survived by her daughters Carolyn Cowan, Wendy Thomas and Donna (Jim) Smith; grandsons Tyler and
Lucas Thomas; great-grand-children Peyton and Bronwyn Thomas as well as well as hundreds of nieces and
nephews (remember the 15 brothers and sisters). Mom was predeceased by her husband George, her sister-
in-law Margaret Meidinger, son-in-law Chris Thomas, her parents and all her siblings.
A Memorial Service will be held in Lethbridge, AB at a later date. Forward condolences through

FOWLER
PAIGE FOWLER, beloved mother on Savannah & Trey, of Lethbridge, passed away suddenly at home on Saturday,

Besides her loving children, she is survived by her children’s father Nana Brenya of Calgary, mother
Holly Poch, father Bill (Kim) Fowler, brother Shawn Fowler and grandmother Lynne Poch as well as other
family too numerous to mention.
Paige was an unique person. She was artistic, loyal, loving, kind yet stubborn and willful. She was many
things to different people but the most important to her was being a mother. For those of us who loved
her we are forever changed by knowing her. Her legacy she leaves behind kisses me goodnight and I know we
will love her forever.
