Amy Carma Fowles Obituary
Amy Fowles
1967 - 2014
Amy Carma Fowles, Daughter of Helen Jeanette Whitmore Fowles, and Gerald Reed Fowles, passed peacefully from this life on Sunday morning, March 23, with her brothers and sister at her side. Amy was born on July 5th, 1967. She had bravely and courageously fought a long battle with cancer, and kept her joyful and positive personality, and will be missed by those she leaves behind, just as she will be welcomed home by her dear mother and father in the heavens. Her warmth and radiant smile made those who met her want to be her friend, and she drew many to her because of her personality. Amy is survived by her Brother Jeff and Sister-in-law Pam (Chambers), Sister Jana Woodruff, Brother Brett and Sister-in-Law Alice Clark, Nephews Logan David Woodruff, Connor McKay Woodruff, and Daughtry Michael Fowles, all of Phoenix, Arizona.
In addition to her work as a school teacher during the school year, Amy loved to spend part of her summer vacation teaching and mentoring children in crafts and outdoor exploration at Mill Hollow during the summer. She loved all animals (except squirrels) and enjoyed her dogs (Bailey, Bonnie, and China) and cat (Alaska) and ducks (Huey, Dewey, Louie, and Wilbur). She had a special place in her heart for her nephews, and was especially good at coming from behind to score a surprise victory in the board games the family loved to play. Christmas will lose much of its flavor without her hand-dipped chocolates and turtles. Several Zombies will also survive because she will not be here to help her nephews plant the right plants to obliterate them.
Amy has been an elementary school teacher, like her mother and father before her, and has taught for over 20 years at Hillview and Spring Lane Elementaries. Watching her students grow and find meaning in the world around them has been her greatest passion and joy, and her family would like to thank her fellow teachers and educators who have been so supportive of her as she has confronted this sickness. The expressions of concern from current and former students have been especially meaningful and we wish to thank those who have showed such love. Her neighbors who supported her through her illness are also dearly cherished by her family.
To celebrate Amy's life, a viewing will be held on Friday, March 28, at the Holbrook Mortuary, 3251 South 2300 East, from 5:00 to 8:00 PM. A memorial service will be observed Saturday, March 29, at the Southeast Christian Church, 1881 Vine Street, from 11:00 AM to 12:30 PM. There will be a viewing at the church on the day of the service from 9:30 to 10:30 AM prior to the service and a luncheon for the family will be provided by friends that loved her afterwards.
