Notre Dame Sister Dolores Fowler
September 12th, 2016

Notre Dame Sister Dolores (Gregory Marie) Fowler, a Sister of Notre Dame for 66 years, died Aug. 16 at home in Longview, Washington. “To think of her is to smile, remembering her trademark sense of humor, her creativity, great energy and joyful outlook on life,” the sisters said in a statement.

Sister Dolores attended Notre Dame High School in San Jose and entered religious life in 1950.

For more than 30 years, she taught in Notre Dame schools in California and Oregon. “Former students remember with great fondness her humor, storytelling, and licorice treats. The story is told that many of them learned math through playing poker,” the sisters said. She was a talented painter, seamstress, maker of jewelry and stained glass, and a creative wood designer.

A funeral Mass will be celebrated at the Sisters of Notre Dame Province Center in Belmont, Sept. 16, 11 a.m., with interment at Mission Santa Clara. Memorial contributions may be made to the Sisters of Notre Dame, 1520 Ralston Ave., Belmont 94002.
