Our generous and loving mother, Mary Ione Poulsen Fowler Fisher, returned home to her Heavenly Father on Monday, March 17, 2014. She was the daughter of Frank and Mary Christopherson Poulsen. Mary was born in Spanish Fork on December 6, 1934 where she spent her early childhood and later moved to Salt Lake City and graduated from South High School.

Mary married Lewis Fowler on April 14, 1953 and was later sealed in the LDS temple onDecember 21, 1955. They started their married life in Salt Lake, but later lived in Bountiful andFarmington.

In 1991, Mary married Merle Otis Fisher and settled in Layton. Following Merle's retirement from Hill Air Force Base, they served an LDS mission to Berlin,Germany from 2004-2005.Unfortunately, their missionended a year early due to Merle being diagnosed with cancer. He passed away on September 21, 2005.

Mary loved her children and God with her whole being. Mary dedicated her life to serving others. Mary enjoyed her numerous callings in the LDS church. Through media and fund raising Mary made it possible for a neighbor to have one of the first hearttransplants. Mary taught through example the virtue of being a hard worker. While raising her children Mary sold Avon, Sandak Sandals,real estate, where she quickly became a member of the MillionDollar Club, started and worked as broker of Omni Realty. Marydeveloped the Layton subdivision she made her home, anddesigned two custom homes which were premiered in the Parade of Homes.

Mary is survived by Diane Poulsen Titze, her caring and loving sister. Seven children: Frank (Debra) Fowler, Mary Lou (Clay) Robinson, Mindy Twibey, Holly (Michael) Lloyd, Chris (Paul) Moon, James (Danielle) Fowler, William (Starr) Fowler. Step-children: Todd, Dawn, Lyle, Amy, James and Mary Fisher, the best 22 grandchildren and 12 great grandchildren any one could ask for. Mary had many nieces and nephews whom she cared about deeply. Mary loved to travel and vacation with family, which left us with veryspecial memories. Mary was preceded in death by her parents, brother, Stan Poulsen, and her eternal mate.

A very special thanks to Legacy Village in Layton. They cared for her, with more love and kindness than anyone could ask. Thenurses at Aspire Hospice were also true angels in our time of need.
