Burial will follow at the Natchez City Cemetery under the direction of Laird Funeral Home.

Visitation will be from 10 a.m. Monday until time of service at the church.

Mrs. Fowler was born June 22, 1925 in Baltimore, Md., the daughter of William Coe Hudson Sr. and Gladys Elvira Mahon Hudson.

Sally loved the Lord without bounds.  She shared the gifts of love and faith with family and friends.  She served as a Eucharistic Minister, lector and provided the Eucharist to the sick and elderly for many years.  She was never negative, but always humble, kind and considerate.  She put the interest of others before her own.  Incredibly, she remembered the birthdays, anniversaries and special events of others— not only her many friends, but also sometimes even strangers. She was a wonderful mother, grandmother and great-grandmother.

She was preceded in death by her parents, her husband, John Charles Fowler Jr. and a daughter, Jan Fowler Huff.

Survivors include one son: John C. Fowler III of Phoenix, Ariz.; two daughters: Judy F. Mascagni and husband, Kenneth, of Shreveport and Jayne Jackson and husband, Danny, of Natchez; son-in-law: Cam Huff and wife, Julie, of Natchez; grandsons: Jay Mascagni and wife, Mandy, of West Monroe, La. and Josh Jackson and wife, Kelcey, of Savannah, Ga.; granddaughters: Ashley Huff Anderson and husband, Jim, Kimberly Huff Burkley and husband, Michael, all of Natchez, and Hannah Jackson Kellogg and husband, Andrew, of Wiggins; great-grandchildren: Madison Mascagni, Layton Mascagni, Millicent Mascagni, Sally Hudson Linton, Wells Linton, Wesley Anderson, Mollie Anderson, Camille Anderson, Charlie Jayne Anderson, Reid Burkley, Lindley Burkley, Miller Burkley and Aubrey Kellogg.

Pallbearers will be Kenneth Mascagni, Cam Huff, Jay Mascagni, Jim Anderson, Michael Burkley and Vaughn Crombie.

Honorary pallbearers will be Joel Crombie, Josh Jackson, Andrew Kellogg, Jim Hudson and Danny Jackson.

The family extends special thanks to Addie Bass, Dr. James Waddill (a most attentive and compassionate physician) and the staff of Promise Hospital (especially, Michelle, Mia, Lisa, Miss Pat and others).
