## Dorothy S. Fowler: A Spirited and Compassionate Soul


Augusta, Maine – With a heart as vast as the ocean and a spirit as radiant as a summer’s day, Dorothy S. Fowler, fondly known as “Dotti” and “Brandy” by her loved ones, embarked on her final journey on May 21st, 2024.

Born in Thorndike, Maine on April 25th, 1964, Dorothy’s life was a vibrant tapestry woven with love, courage, and unwavering support for those she held dear. Her presence in the world was an embodiment of Maya Angelou’s words, “I’ve learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.” And Dorothy made everyone she met feel loved, supported, and valued.

A Journey Filled with Vitality and Passion

Dorothy’s life was a testament to her zest for living. She embraced every adventure that came her way, from exploring the pristine beaches of Florida to cheering on her beloved Buffalo Bills and Florida Gators football teams. She found joy in the simple pleasures of life, from curling up with a good book to sharing a good laugh over a movie.

A Career Driven by Service and Dedication

Dorothy’s professional life was a reflection of her passion for helping others. As a real estate agent for over 20 years, she dedicated herself to guiding her clients through the complexities of the housing market with compassion and integrity. Her unwavering commitment to excellence earned her a reputation for professionalism and trustworthiness.

A Family Rooted in Love and Support

Above all else, Dorothy was a beacon of love and support for her family. She was a devoted mother to her sons, Dylan Southward and Jason Stanton, and a doting grandmother to her granddaughter, Harper Southward. Her unwavering support and radiant love extended to her daughter-in-law, Zoraya Southward, her brothers, Jeff and Dickie Henry, and her sister, Cynthia Henry.

A Legacy of Compassion and Strength

Dorothy faced life’s challenges with unwavering courage and grace. Despite the obstacles she encountered, she never lost sight of her purpose: to make a positive difference in the lives of others. Her strength and resilience inspired all who knew her and served as a reminder that even in the face of adversity, hope and joy prevail.
