Sylvia Jewel Fowler died in her home in Lockhart, Texas, on Jan. 10, 2012. She was born Aug. 16, 1913, in Dale, Texas, to Waymon Dunlap Moore and Nettie Jane Thieler.
Sylvia married Roy B. “Buddy” Fowler on Sept. 14, 1932, and they were married for 67 years until his death in 1999. She was also preceded in death by her daughter, Betty Schroeder, her brothers, James L. Moore and W.D. Moore, Jr., and her grandson, Hal Segler. She is survived by one daughter, Barbara Wilson, of Lockhart.
Above all Sylvia dedicated her life to loving and caring for her family. Known as “Mamaw” by her grandchildren, she treasured every moment with them. They include: Winn Schroeder and wife, Susan, of Lockhart, Christy Braun and husband, Dane, of Dripping Springs, Kimberly Schroeder, of Fort Worth, and Nancy Grabarkewitz and husband, David, of Lockhart. Nancy and her grandmother had a very special relationship and she helped care for Mamaw in her later years.
Sylvia is also survived by four great-grandchildren Lindsey Schroeder of Austin, Cassie Schroeder of Lockhart and Blake and Cole Braun of Dripping Springs.
“Mamaw, we were all lucky to have had you in our lives. You will always be in our hearts.”
The family wishes to thank CTMC Hospice of San Marcos as they saw us through those last weeks. Ann, Roger and Tabby you sustained us.
Liz, Mamie and Tina you became a part of our family as you lovingly cared for Mamaw.
Dr. Barton J. Romanek and his staff and retired doctor P.A. Wales gave expert medical care to Sylvia all of her adult life.
We thank you all.
