Aloyse Dowie, 96, passed away peacefully at Methodist Hospital surrounded by her loving family. She is now in the loving arms of her beloved husband, Frank. Truly, a match made in heaven.
Mass of a Christian Burial will take place at 11AM on Thursday, January 12, 2017 at St. Theresa’s Catholic Church: 1230 Merle Hay Rd, Des Moines. A visitation will be held 1 hour prior to the service, also at the church.
She is survived by her loving children, Frank (Brenda) of Waterloo, Diana (Don) of Virginia, Cynthia (Mike) of West Des Moines, Chris (Laurie) of Des Moines and Pam Dowie of Waterloo; 11 loving grandchildren; and 14 loving great-grandchildren. Her happy place was always with her family!
Special thanks to the Life Center Staff, your care and love went above and beyond. You were her best friends.
So for Aloyse, “Home again, home again, jiggety jig.”
