Dr. Joseph M. Stowell, former GARBC National Representative, went home to be with the Lord at the age of 96 on Saturday evening, June 23, 2007.

(Martha Bennett) Stowell III of South Elgin, Illinois; fourteen grandchildren and twenty-five great-grandchildren. He was preceded in death by his parents, Joseph M. and Gertrude Faxon Stowell, as well as a sister, Ruth Elizabeth Stowell.

A memorial service for family and friends will be held on Monday, June 25, 2007, at 7:00 p.m. in the chapel at Windsor Park Manor in Carol Stream, Illinois.
