Lois Aileen Fowler-Smith

of Conway, AR

November 30, 1931 - June 29, 2021

Lois Aileen Fowler-Smith, 89, of Greenbrier, went to be with her precious Lord and Savior on June 29, 2021, surrounded by her kids and grandkids. Born November 30, 1931, to the late Roy Oather and Ellen (DeBusk) Gaither, Lois was a faithful member of the Greenbrier Church of the Nazarene but also worshipped most of her life at Howard General Baptist Church, a church in which her parents, Roy Oather and Ellen Gaither, were charter members. Lois served the Lord every day of her life and loved her family incessantly.

Lois was a homemaker, seamstress, and awesome cook and retired from work in upholstery at Mel-Hart Boat Factory in Conway where she worked alongside her husband, Willard. She loved southern gospel music and being with her family. In her eyes, the best gospel singers were her kids and grandkids.

Lois was preceded in death by two sisters, Dean Kennedy (Raymond) and Arlene (James) Crafton-Rowlett; and one brother, Mack Gaither (Reva). She was also preceded in death by her second husband, Kenneth Smith, and the love of her life, Willard Fowler, to whom she was married for 42 years. Willard's humor and love of aggravating others were what made their life together so special.

Lois is survived by two brothers, Deon Gaither (Karen) of East End and Ellis Gaither of Greenbrier; two daughters, Paulette Hutchison (Greg) and Lenett Thrasher (Steve) of Greenbrier; four grandchildren, Taylor Burke (Cody) of Bryant; Parker Hutchison (MacKenzie), Hayden Thrasher (Elaina), and Hunter Thrasher (Melanie) from Greenbrier; and one great-grandson, Kohen Burke; and a host of other family members and church friends. She used her last breath on this earth telling her family how much she loved them and how proud she was of them. She described her vision of seeing all of them, those still alive and those who had passed, together in Heaven.

Visitation will be from 5:00-6:30PM Thursday, July 1, 2021, at Greenbrier Church of the Nazarene with Funeral Service following at 6:30PM. Burial will begin at 10:00AM Friday, July 2, 2021, at Center Point Cemetery in Quitman, Arkansas.
