June 3, 1919 – April 26, 2012
Janet Lucille Brown Fowler was born on June 3, 1919, in Bucyrus, Ohio, the daughter of Neva and Carl Brown. She graduated from Bucyrus High School in 1937 and moved to Cleveland, where she completed nurse’s training at St. Luke’s Hospital, received her RN degree and then worked there as a nurse.
She met Max Fowler in Cleveland and they were married in 1942. Six months later, Max joined the U.S. Navy and the newlyweds moved to Annapolis, Md. They lived there throughout World War II, Max teaching at the Naval Academy and Janet working at Annapolis City Hospital. After Max was discharged, they moved to Ann Arbor, Mich., where Max earned his doctorate in physics in 1949. They then moved to Manhattan, Kan., where Max taught in the physics department. Their daughter Mary Janet, was born in Manhattan shortly after their arrival there.
Max began working as a consultant at Los Alamos in the summer of 1951 and the whole family spent wonderful summers there. In 1957, the Fowlers moved to Los Alamos for good and lived on Arizona Avenue at the edge of the forest for many years.
