VirginiaFowler2Virginia Blanch Fowler, 94, of Kirkland passed away peacefully Saturday June 7, 2014 at Life Care Center in Kirkland, Washington. She was born in Portland, Oregon March 8, 1920 and lived most of her life in Kirkland. She was formerly married to the late Gordon White. She is survived by 5 children, Gordon (Buck) White of Lacey, WA; Chuck White, Aurora, CO; Virginia White, Anchorage, AK; Carol White, Lacey, WA and Janet White, Anchorage, AK. She also leaves two brothers, Fred Fowler, Meridian, ID and Bob Fowler and his wife Joyce in Redmond, WA, 9 grandchildren, 21 great grandchildren, 2 great-great grandchildren, 15 nieces and 14 nephews.

Virginia loved her family dearly and enjoyed any and all activities that allowed her to spend time with her kids, grandkids and her siblings. She particularly loved music of any kind, sports (of course) and word puzzles. She was proud to be part of a women’s trio she formed with her friends Eloise Loesby and Dorothy Diehm. They performed at countless gatherings at the Rose Hill Presbyterian Church and later the Bellevue Congregational Church. Virginia was a children’s choir director at both churches. She was a simple lady who only wanted to be remembered by her family and friends for “being happy”. She was slow to anger and quick to forgive. She had a delightful sense of humor which served her well while raising 5 active children and will be forever loved and missed by those she has left behind. We were blessed to have her for 94 well lived years!
