The journey of life for Eunice Elizabeth Fowler began on April 19, 1929 when she was born to the late Mr. Albert and Mrs. Eunice Bell Richey in Cartersville, Georgia. She was the last child born into a large family unit, joining her parents, four brothers, and three sisters. As a child of Godly parents and grandparents she was introduced to Christ early in life, offered her life to Him, and became a member of Mt. Zion Grassdale Baptist Church. During her teenage years, she would fellowship and sing with her mother and sisters at local community churches. Her favorite songs were "Amazing Grace" and "I'm Going Home On The Morning Train".

Eunice attended schools in Bartow County. As an adult, her employment consisted of domestic service and child caregiving.

Though unsustained, she was married to the late Rexie R. Fowler, Sr., and to this union they were blessed with three children. She is affectionately referred to by the grandchildren as "Mama Eunice" or "NiNi", which has also become a term of endearment by those with whom she shared a mutual love and respect.

For many years she was a resident of Emerson, GA where she enjoyed fellowship with Damascus Baptist Church and the community at large. She later moved back to Cartersville, the city that she loved.She would walk in the downtown and shopping center areas, chatting with strangers, and establishing friendly relationships. At home, she enjoyed listening to music, watching westerns, and was an avid Atlanta Braves fan.

She leaves warm and loving memories in the hearts of her daughters; Ernestine Fowler Tanner, Canton,GA., and Donna Dale Fowler Linley, Kennesaw, GA; grandchildren, Darrell (Cathy) Fowler, Kimberly Mitchell, Carmen Tanner Slaughter, Latanza (Tally) Lindsey, Clarissa (Calvin) Miller and Cantrece Tanner Gober; great grandchildren, Morgan and Jordan Fowler, Jackie and Taylor Mitchell, Myles Slaughter, Destiny Warren and  Noah Heard, LaTia, Titus and Tamira Hightower and Mariposa Gober; sister-in-law, Georgia Bell Richey; and a host of nieces, nephews, other relatives and friends.
