Sorry to hear the news on Mrs.Towler. I knew her from the drugstore and she was a person I always enjoyed seeing and chatting with. Missed seeing her after we closed. Hi to Ken and family.

Becky was a force of nature with culinary and gardening gifts galore. She will be sorely missed by her friends and family, especially her two sons Ken and Kemper. But I believe she is at peace and has joined her loving husband. May she Rest In Peace. My condolences to Ken, Kemper and Mary Gough.

Aunt Becky was the best cook ever. She prepared Christmas and Thanksgiving meals for our family for many years. She loved to try out new recipes and would call them, "burners or keepers." Her mind was always sharp as well as her wit about her. She loved her sons dearly. Kemper and Kenneth remained at her bedside for the past 3 months and took great care of her. She will be missed by all. I'm sure she's having a great reunion with Uncle Claiborne and my grandparents.

Ken and family. Although never having met your Mother, I can say I was gifted some of her wonderful jelly over the years. I know Mrs. Towler will be sadly missed and especially by Ken who fondly and lovingly spoke of his Mom. My deepest sympathy and condolences to the family.

I am so sorry.. Becky lived next door to my In-laws (McCarrons) many years. She was one of the sweetest ladies I have ever met. She was loved by many. Prayers for you boys.
