Dorothy Haney Fowler passed away peacefully, at age 101, on July 11, 2019 in San Rafael, California surrounded by loved ones. She was born on August 19, 1917 in Tulsa, Oklahoma to George W. and Caroline J. Davis. She had four siblings, George, Allen, Louise and Gordon.
Dorothy graduated from Oklahoma State University where she met and later married Bill Haney. After Bill returned from action in World War II they moved to Tulsa. Dorothy and Bill ultimately made their home in Shawnee where they raised their much loved sons, Dick and Jim.
Dorothy lived most of her adult life in Shawnee where she was active in the Wesley Methodist Church, then the First Presbyterian Church and later in the Liberty Baptist Church. She was a fifty plus year member of PEO and also an active member of the DAR and Chi Omega Alumni. Dorothy loved to travel and spend time with her family. She played both the piano and the organ beautifully.
Years after her beloved Bill passed and while still in Shawnee she married Jay Whitten, who passed shortly thereafter, and then Marvin Fowler. After Marvin’s passing Dorothy moved to Norman, Oklahoma to be close to her son Jim. She lived there many years where she made numerous new friends.
Later in life, and after Jim’s passing, she joined her son Dick and his family in Kentfield, California so she could be close to Dick’s family and see his children and grandchildren grow. She remained there for seven and one-half years surrounded by loved ones until her passing.
Dorothy was pre-deceased by her beloved husband, Bill Haney, her son, Jim Haney, her Nephew Roger Tipton and one sister, three brothers and nine in-laws. She is survived by her son and daughter-in-law, Dick and Kim Haney, and grandchildren Barr and Lindsay Haney of Kentfield, California and Parker Haney and Lauren Petersen, Parker’s girlfriend, of Mill Valley, California., Lauren and Sean Moore of Holly Springs North Carolina, and Matt and Caitlin Haney of Norman. She has six beautiful great grand children, Addison and Hudson Moore of North Carolina, Walker, Violet, and Leo Haney of California, and Caide Haney of Oklahoma. She also has many beloved nieces and nephews who will each miss her joy and spirit.
A private family service will be held at a later date in Shawnee.
