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.
