Mary Irene Rowe passed away on Friday, Aug. 23, 2013. Mary was born on Oct. 30, 1929, to Edna and Gail Oakes in Ponca City, Okla. At the age of five, she dedicated her life to her God, Jehovah and faithfully served Him until her death.
She loved her dogs, Lucy and Peaches. Mary formed very close relationships with Irma Hanvelt; and many others in the Fairfield area. Mary looked forward to the time when God would fulfill His promise of restoring the Earth to a paradise. She believed He will cleanse the earth of all wickedness, suffering, pain and even death (Psalms 37:9-11, Revelation 21:3-5). She also believed that at that time, God will bring her back to life to live here on Earth and to be reunited with family and friends, many who have preceded her in death (John 5:28, 29).
Services will be private.
