Sammy Sue Fowler, 84, of Topeka Kansas, passed away March 14, 2024, after suffering from
Dementia/Alzheimer’s disease. Her illness could not take away Sue’s optimistic spirit
with which she lived. She treasured time with family and friends and never a day or
conversation went by when She failed to express gratitude or let us know how much she loved
us. We will hold onto this as our days of sadness are replaced with special memories we have
with her and how she lived.

Sue was born on August 28, 1939, in Joplin Missouri. She lived her early years in Joplin, MO,
Moran, Kansas, and Greenfield Kansas. Sue met her future husband in the 4th grade. Ferman
Dwight Fowler and Sammy Sue Senseney were best friends and married at the ages of 17 and
19 on June 8, 1957. Topeka, Kansas was their home for most of their adult lives. Mom’s career
was spent working for The State of Kansas, The Menninger Foundation, and Sprint

Sue loved spending summers enjoying picnics and outdoor concerts at the amphitheater on the
lake in Dillion, Colorado. One of her other favorite places was their screened porch surrounded
by family and their wonderful community of friends on the ‘court’ enjoying a glass of blush and
listening to music.

Along with her ‘Ferm’, Sue was a 50-year member of Countryside United Methodist Church
where she sang in the Choir, taught Sunday School, and led youth ministry.
Our eternal thanks for Mom’s life as we embrace the promise that we will be reunited with her
again one day.

Sue was preceded in death by her parents Sam and Goldena Senseney, and husband, Ferman
Fowler. She is survived by her sister, Nancy Brooks (Robert Brooks), brother Denny Senseney
, and children, Aaron Fowler (Laura Dungan), Troy Fowler (Jane Fowler), and Susan Calderwood
(Mick Calderwood). Her legacy of love will endure through her 8 grandchildren and two great-grandchildren.

A private family gathering will be on Good Friday to celebrate Sue’s life.
