Cora Fowler (Arbuckle)

December 7, 1924 - February 12, 2018


Cora Fowler
Dec. 7, 1924 – Feb. 12, 2018.

With great sadness and love we say goodbye to Mom, Cora Fowler (nee Arbuckle). She passed away peacefully surrounded by her loved ones on this beautiful Family Day.

Cora was born in Coal Creek, A coal miners daughter, the youngest of eleven siblings. Cora married David Fowler and they were blessed with eight children. Most of Moms life was spent in the Kootenays, mainly in Creston, Riondel and Nelson. Cora was predeceased by her parents and her sibling, her husband Dave, sons Jordy and Dennis, daughter Judy, son in law Mick Fisher and granddaughter Tracy. She is survived by sons David (Lynn) of Kamloops and John (Susanne) of Black Creek, daughters Heather Fisher, Cora (Ryan) Leduc and Cathy (Rick) Taylor and a son in law Bob Bourdon all of Nelson, BC.

Cora also has about 100 grandchildren and a gaggle of great grandchildren, innumerable cousins, nieces, nephews and people who may or might not be related but are well loved by the entire family.

Cora never backed down from a fight nor ever turned down someone who needed a hand. She delighted in close family and dear friends, loved music and laughter and an occasional road trip with her daughters.

Cora was fortunate to call Lakeview Village her home, she was able to live independently and enjoy the new friends she met.

To Mom family was everything and to her family Mom was everything.

In lieu of flowers a random act of kindness would be a nice way to remember Cora

From: Laurent
Relation: I am Ryan's brother and Cora's secret admirer

I have fond memories of Cora sitting in Ryan and Cora’s living room surrounded by family and friends and smiling ear to ear.

And then there was the activist story! What a range of benevolence! Family, community and natural world. There really was no separation.

From: Ruth & Art O'Bryan
Relation: See above

I first met Cora working at the IODE Thrift Shop and thoroughly enjoyed our hours together. Then, I learned to know her better when I drove her home and we had tea together. Art has fond memories of Cora when she was in the Pythian Sisters Lodge with his Mother. Cora was living in Riondel and the O’Bryans lived in Creston. We have shared lots of hugs with Cora in the last years at the Lakeview residence, she was a great lady!
