Midge passed away peacefully after a brief illness on November 13, 2020 in Victoria, BC with her family by her side. She was born on August 26, 1940 in Lethbridge, AB.

Predeceased by her husband, Tom Fowler; sister, Darlo Irvine and her special twin sister, “ Twinie ” Sheila Halvorson. Midge is survived by her children, Terri (Rob) Kosmala, Blane (Allison) Fowler and her special granddaughters, Mary and Anna Fowler as well as her grand puppies, Jack, Sophie, Holly and Sparky. She will be dearly missed by many other family and friends.

Tom and Midge met at Lloyds Rollercade and were married May 26, 1965. Midge worked for the Calgary Board of Education for many years as a Library Assistant and did much volunteer work as well. Once she retired, she spent her time between, Calgary, Shuswap, Victoria and Mississauga with her family, which always was so special to her.

The family will be celebrating Midge’s life together as that is what gave Midge the greatest joy. We ask that you raise a cup of tea, remember her fondly and recite this Irish Prayer she loved so much.

An Irish Prayer

May God give you,
For every storm a rainbow,
For every tear, a smile,
For every care, a promise,
And a Blessing in each trial.
For every problem life sends,
A Faithful Friend to share,
For every sigh a, sweet song,
And an answer
For each prayer.

    Terri, Blaine and families,

    I have many fond memories of time spent with your Mom. Working at Harold Panabaker Junior High and the many social events outside of work. There were many great laughs shared. Your Mom was a very positive spirit and it was a pleasure to spend time with her. It was my good fortunate to call her my friend. My best wishes are being sent your way.

    Condolences to Terri, Blane and rest of the Fowler family. Your mom was a very special lady and will be missed.

    I have great childhood memories of visits at the cabin at Shuswap Lake and your mom was always so gracious and generous even when inundated by myself and my many Seto cousins.

    May you take comfort in knowing she is now reunited with your Dad.
