Tawna Lorraine Stowell


Died October 22, 2017, with her family at her side.

Tawna was born Sept 9, 1958, in Salt Lake City, UT,  to Ralph Lawrence and Tammy Lorraine Stowell. The family moved to Burley, ID in 1960, and resided in Idaho for many years. She is survived by her sister, Michelle A. Rhine of Wichita, Kansas, and Sherri L Baker of The Dalles, Oregon. Tawna moved to The Dalles, Oregon after her father died in 1999, to live with her sister Sherri. She had just returned to live in Idaho in August of 2017.

Tawna will be remembered as a special person who faced unique challenges in her life. It was hard for Tawna to express her thoughts and feelings, but her love for her family and especially for Jehovah God were well known.

She had especially close relationships with her Mom and Dad, her Aunt JoAnn and her nieces, Jesi and Simone. She also loved her sisters Sherri and Michelle, but Tawna had a mischievous streak and occasionally got the better of them. Tawna also had special friends throughout her life besides her family, who also loved Tawna for her endearing and quirky personality. They would take her out for lunch, to meetings at the Kingdom Hall, and in the door to door ministry to talk about Jehovah.

Tawna loved animals and took good care of her dog, Stewie and her cat Tahiti. She talked often about seeing her parents again in paradise. We will miss her greatly.

    How heart warming! Tawna was a gentle soul, whose face lit up when she talked about Jehovah. We look forward to her resurrection in Gods promised new world, where no one will say, I am sick-Isaiah33:24.No more headaches for our sister! Just around the corner, we will see her again, soon!

    I am so deeply sorry for your loss. We are all looking forward to the day when Jehovah’s promise at John 5:28, 29 will come true for all our loved ones who have fallen asleep in death.

    So sorry we could not attend Tawna’s memorial. Tawna reintroduced me to the simple life many times. Tawna and I were at a yard sale together and there was a great deal on some nice purses. I said to Tawna, “Look, Tawna, we can buy as many purses as we want and not grow broke!” Tawna said, “I already have a purse.” I reeled at that simple comment, being the owner of about twenty purses. Wow, what a concept, I am still working on it and am down to four purses. Thanks to Tawna I am on the road to downsizing, I think of her often. Cathy Leoni

    I’m sorry for your loss. Death is hardest on the survivors. Tawna’s quirkiness will be missed. May we can find comfort in knowing Tawna is safe in Jehovah’s memory and we will she her again in paradise. Until then, let us be comforted by Jehovah the God of comfort. 2 Corinthians 1:3,4.
