Mrs. Shirley Allen Fowler, 84, of Thomasville, NC. Passed away on May 12, 2021. She was born on June 22, 1936 in Tabor City, NC to the late Dude Vance Allen Jr. and Emma Georgia Hewette Allen. She worked at Thomasville Furniture Plant A for many years before retiring. Shirley was a loving mother of five and would do without to help others. She never had much, but if you needed a place to stay, her door was open. If you were hungry, she would fix you something to eat. She had a heart of gold and will surely be missed by all that truly knew her. She so believed in her Lord, Jesus Christ and was a member of Bright Light Freewill Baptist Church. In addition to her parents, she is preceded in death by her son, Douglas Ray Fowler; brother, Tommy Allen; and sisters, Lois Todd and Joyce Harrelson.
Left to cherish her memory are her sons, Jeffrey “Dean” Fowler (Sandy) of Lexington, and Michael “Mike” Fowler of Lexington; daughters Tammie Lee (Billy) of Thomasville, and Sara Noah (Danny Guilliams) of Lexington; 9 grandchildren Billie Jo Lee, Bradley Fowler, Steven Noah, Melissa Hobbs, Jenna Leftwich, Barry Todd, Deanna White, Regan Fowler, and Doug Fowler; and 11 great-grandchildren Natalie, Taylor, Callie, Jason, Brandon, Aharon, Levi, Cierra, Alyssa, Karmen, and Saylor.
