All of these messages have touched my heart. She was my "big sister" and wish you could have known her in her youth. She was a "teacher" even in her teens. I miss her terribly.

She was the sensei for many of us; her laughter and hospitality set the standard for learning in community. Our thoughts & prayers go with you.

Dr. Dona Gower changed my way of reading and understanding great literature. I will forever be indebted to this marvelous lady who freely shared her love and passion for teaching and learning.

The world of education has lost a shining star with Dona's death. What a wonderful inspiration she was to so many!

Your mother was one of the greatest teachers I have ever had. I credit her and Betty Marney with preparing me for what has become a 20-year career teaching writing and literature. I was so fortunate to have known her and to have learned from her while I was at Harpeth Hall. I am sorry for your loss, Alison.

God rest her wonderful soul. Thinking of you Alison.

Your mom's lessons and hearty laugh brought joy to all of us in Dallas ISD who had the privilege of attending the Dallas Institute for Humanities and Culture and the Athena Foundation.

I met Dona and Allison at UTSW and had the honor of getting to know them briefly. I was immediately impressed with the enthusiasm, intelligence and love of teaching Dr. Gower expressed and exhibited. In very difficult circumstances I grew to look forward to seeing them both and hoped to help as much as possible even if only to show and give support. I respect Dona and I know she will be missed by many. What a blessing Allison was to her mother, I think of you often and hope you are doing as well as possible after your loss of your parents over the past short period. Thank you for brightening my day often with wit and kindness. Jane Steele

Dona Gower was a teacher and mentor to me and many of my colleagues in the 1990s. We found refuge and sustenance in classes at The Athena Foundation. Her gift of literature spans generations of teachers and students. Her passion for literature made all of us better teachers.
