Joyce Fowler Obituary

Joyce Marie Fowler peacefully departed this life on Tuesday, September 13, 2022 in Washington, D.C. peacefully in her home after a long term illness. She was born on September 5. 1942 in Stapleton, Ga. to the later Wyona and Ollie Tremble. Her two siblings Ollie Leon Tremble, and Samuel McArthur Tremble preceded her in death.

Joyce was educated at Wrens High School located in the Georgia school system. She was a member of Stone Springfield AME. Joyce loved the Lord. As we all know her favorite song to sing was "Get away Jordan". After relocating to Washington, D.C. she joined St. Marks Baptist Church in October 1980, under the leadership of the late Rev. Wilborn Gilmore, where she served faithfully until her health declined. She was a Deaconess, and also a member of the Senior choir, Sanctuary choir, V.E. Gospel chorus and the Choral Union.

On June 8, 1968 Joyce was united in holy matrimony to Alfred Fowler Sr. who preceded her in death. From this union 4 children were born; Cheryl, Alfred Jr., James (preceded in death) and Shantae. Joyce worked for the federal government located at the Navy Yard for over 25+ years where she retired.

Outside of serving Christ she loved spending time with her family and her golden girls sisters; Alberta, Louise, Lizzie, Hazel, Velma, Patricia, Elois, and Cynthia, Blanche, Shirley, and Geneva (who preceded her in death).

On Tuesday, September 13, 2022 after being placed on hospice care preparing for her journey, GOD called her home. She passed the test and won the race. During her lifetime she experienced so many things. She loved her family, her children, her grandchildren, and church family.

Joyce leaves to cherish her memory; three children Cheryl Fowler, Alfred Fowler Jr., Shantae Forte (Lucky) all of Washington, D.C., two step-daughters; Wanda Holman of South Carolina, Vicki Harrell of North Carolina, one brother Charles Tremble of Washington, D.C., four sister-in-laws; Dorothy Marley (Robert), Margaret Friday, Jessie Robins (John) all of South Carolina, Bettyrose Tremble of Silver Spring, MD., seven grandchildren; Pierre, Aleisha, Ahki, LaMonte Jr., Taylor, Camiya, Zade; three great-grandchildren; Kane, Ah'Ron, and Legend; a special niece and nephew Lucious and Sheva Fludd; two special cousins; Benjamin and Jean; A very special family friend Brenda Ellis a host of nieces, nephews, other relatives and friends.
