Dorothy "Dot" Dabling Fowers Thompson

March 8, 1936 — July 8, 2024

Heaven has just received a very classy lady as she is reunited with her loved ones. Dorothy “Dot” Dabling Fowers Thompson passed away peacefully on July 8, 2024, in her home in Taylor after a battle with cancer. She was the youngest of six children born to Harry and Florence Mary Mitchell Dabling in Riverdale, Idaho, on March 8, 1936. The family moved from Preston, Idaho, to Washington Terrace, Utah, when World War II broke out, as both her parents worked at Hill Air Force Base.

She married Charles “Spug” Deloy Fowers in Las Vegas, Nevada, on August 30, 1955. They had two sons, Greg and Kim. Unfortunately, Spug’s life was cut short, and he passed away in 1966. She then married Dewey Varney Thompson in Elko, Nevada, on January 15, 1967. This union brought a daughter into the world, Stacie. Dad passed away in 1999. 

She worked as a machine operator at Hostess in the cake shop. She always smelled of baked goods when she came home from work. 

Mom was cherished by everyone who knew her. She had a fantastic sense of humor and loved hosting gatherings with family and friends. She enjoyed shopping, watching movies, traveling anywhere, and frequently went out of her way to connect with people. She had a passion for making everything beautiful and loved decorating. Mom was an incredible cook and rarely used a recipe.

Family was very important to her, and she was affectionately known as “Grandma Dot” by many. She had a way of making everyone feel special and important.

She was an active member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and had a current calling in the nursery, which she referred to as the “best hour” of the week, something that gave her purpose.

Mom is survived by her son, Kim (Sherie) Fowers, Roy; daughter, JoAnn Jeffs, Salt Lake City; son, Jesse Thompson and daughter, Stacie Johnson, Taylor; her sister, Maxine “Mickey” Taylor, Hurricane. She loved her grandchildren and great-grandchildren dearly, whether they were related by blood or not, and they were too numerous to count.

She was preceded in death by both husbands; son, Gregory Paul Fowers; her parents; sister, Margene (Marge) Strong; brothers, Robert “Bob”, Dennis and Ralph Dabling..

Funeral services will be held on Saturday, July 13, 2024, at 11 a.m. at the Windsor Building, 3271 West 2550 South, West Haven. Friends may visit with family on Friday from 6 to 8 p.m. and Saturday from 9:30 to 10:30 a.m. at the church. Interment, Lindquist’s Washington Heights Memorial Park, 4500 Washington Blvd.

We extend our heartfelt thanks to the Taylor 1st Ward and community, whom we consider family. Special thanks to Shannon, Sydney, and Shanna of Atlas Hospice for their skilled and loving care. We immediately formed a bond with them and will be forever grateful.

Services will be live-streamed and available the day of the services by scrolling to the bottom of Dorothy’s obituary page at: www.lindquistmortuary.com where condolences may also be shared.
