Joanne Carol Fowler

Joanne Carol Fowler, 73, of Dahlonega, died on May 12, 2012 at Northeast Georgia Medical Center. Born in San Diego, Calif. she was the daughter of the late Ole and Elizabeth Jensen.

Joanne married Jack Fowler in 1961 in Gulfport, Miss. She became known as “Mar” in 1991 when her first grandchild started calling her by this name because she played Mario Brothers with him on Super Nintendo. A few years later her granddaughter began calling her “Mari” and the next two granddaughters called her “Mara” – so she began to tell everyone her name was like a Latin phrase.

Joanne retired as an RN in 2003 and had lived in Dahlonega for 14 years. She moved there from Snellville where she had resided since 1976. After retirement, Joanne became a member of the Red Hat Society.

In addition to her husband, Joanne is survived by children, Michael J. (Robin Leigh) Fowler of Fayetteville, Calif., Jacqueline (Paul) Anderson of Dahlonega, and Keith Fowler of Athens, Ga.; brother Fred (Renee) Brooks of Flower Mound, Texas; and six, much-loved grandchildren.

A memorial service will be held at a later date.

In lieu of flowers, the family requests that donations be made to the American Cancer Society (www.cancer.org) or the American Lung Association (www.lung.org).

Condolences may be expressed on-line at www.mcdonaldandson.com.

Jason Joseph Rogers Jr.

Jason Joseph Rogers Jr, age 18 of Dahlonega, died Monday, May 14, 2012 at Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta/Egleston.

Jason Joseph Rogers was a shining light in our world. He touched each and every person that he had ever met, and taught us all what true strength really was. He was such a caring person, he always put everyone first. He loved animals, and any stray that approached him was always welcome in his arms. He loved music and he was constantly listening and singing along to his favorite songs, even to the annoyance of others.

He knew how to make us laugh and he could always brighten up a dark situation. He was so full of joy and he was always smiling, even in the end. He was proud of who he was, and he didn’t mind voicing his opinions to everyone who was listening. His life was a blessing to everyone it touched, and he will be dearly missed. Hope heaven is full of pickles, because Jason is always hungry.

Jason was a student at Lumpkin County High School.

He is survived by his mother, Janiene Holgate, Dahlonega; father Jason Rogers Sr., Louisiana; adopted father, Benny Powers, Dahlonega; brothers, Cody Rogers and Shawn Holgate, both of Dahlonega; sisters, Shanell Caperton, N.J., Jozetta Juarez, Dahlonega; adopted sister, Carol Perea, Dahlonega; grandparents, Verna Morris, Dahlonega and Linda Chaisson, Louisiana; very special friend, Ramone Goodwin, Dahlonega. A number of other relatives also survive.

Funeral services were held May 16, 2012 at the Banister Funeral Home Chapel in Dahlonega.
