I have known Mrs. Owens for about 40 years now. She is one of the strongest and dedicated women I know. She gave all she had to being an EMT, a wife, and a mother to her boys. She was a very sweet lady and always treated me with love and respect. Mrs. Owens is the mother of my sisters husband Donald Owens. She will be missed by me and her family. She is in heaven with our Lord Jesus Christ. Don and Mary you both can take comfort in knowing that God has probably already put her to work. She is a worker bee and can't stay down for long. God Bless you both and your family. I love you all. You all are in my heart and prayers. Mrs. Terri Mercier

I have known Mrs. Owems and her family for a very long time. She is the mother of my sisters husband Don Owen's. I admired her so much for the work she did as an EMT, a wife to her husband, and a mother to her boys and their families. I will always remember her as a strong,, courageous and very lovely lady. She was always sweet to me and my family. I will miss her. Don and Mary, it is a blessing knowing she loved Jesus, and has gone on to be with the Lord. May she rest in peace. She was a worker bee, so I am sure Jesus already has her working on making a place for her family in heaven. God Bless you all and the family who loved her.
