Celebrating the life of

Leslie Fowler

February 06, 1951 - April 19, 2023

Leslie Fowler

Leslie Fowler, 72, a resident of Savannah, Georgia since 1984, passed away peacefully at home on April 19, 2023.  Leslie was born February 6, 1951, in Chattanooga, Tennessee.  She was the daughter of the late Calvert and Barbara Ballard.  Her sister is the late Linda Peterson.  She met O. C.  Fowler, Jr., while he was a Navy Flight Instructor in Pensacola, Florida.  They were married for 48 wonderful years.  Their daughter, Courtney Fowler, was born at the NAS Jacksonville, Florida in 1978.

Leslie was a great Navy wife and partner during their 8 military moves and after arriving in Savannah.  During her 15 years supporting the Navy, she was praised for her outstanding biscuits and breakfast at the end of a night of socializing.  While O. C. was deployed, she raised their daughter, maintained the household, kept the family finances straight and sold their house and vehicles.  She worked part time in many different Savannah businesses so that she would be home to take care of Courtney.

Leslie is survived by her husband Ormond C. (O.C.) Fowler, Jr., daughter Courtney Fowler, and many friends and relatives scattered around the United States.   Leslie’s ashes will be placed in the Tennessee River after a Memorial Service to be held at a later date.
