Born in Scranton, daughter of the late Edward and Hildegard Kramer Gower, she was educated in Scranton schools. She obtained her certificate as a nurse's aide from the Lackawanna County Vocational Technical School.
She was a loving and caring individual who always put others before herself. Her greatest enjoyment was sitting with family and friends around the kitchen table having coffee and good conversation. The highlight of her life was her 2010 trip to Germany where she met her mother's entire family. She will be sadly missed by her family and friends.
