Marian J. Sowell 1930 - 2013

Marian J. Sowell

January 13, 2013
Although I never met Ms Sowell, I read Her obit in the Press Register and recalled living near Mr. George Sowell's store in Kosciusko. One of my earliest memories is standing at our screen door with my brother watching the train go by. Although I was about three years old, I remember going to Sowell's store. This was 1944 or 45 while my Dad was away in the Pacific Theater. My husband remembers buying his first bubble gum in Mr. Sowell's store when it became available after the war.

I always admired her sense of independence and her love of travel, how she made it a priority to see the world. On one of her trips, to Europe, she stopped in New York City and we "kicked up our heels" at the Rainbow Room, a memory I will treasure forever. Joyce love of books was instrumental in helping my mom conceive our hometown library. She will be missed. I like to think of her & her sister (my mom) walking hand in hand in heaven, maybe down a row of tomato plants on a sunny day, to pick for a sandwich with the homemade mayonnaise my mom use to make.-- Holly, her niece

I met Miss Sowell in the 1960's when she was my supervisor in the Reference Department of the Mobile Public Library. Her love and dedication to learning and the library was evident then and throughout her life. She was an inspiration and a pleasure to know.

Joyce was my first "boss" after I finished library school and began work at the Moorer Library in Mobile. She was a wonderful person and I have remebered her fondly through the years. Please accept my deepest sympathy on her passing.
