Ms. Suzie Fowler
Susan “Suzie” Mobley Fowler, age 47, of Vidalia, died Sunday, November 21, 2021, at Doctors Hospital in Augusta after a long battle with Covid-19. She was a native of Sardis, Georgia, moving to Toombs County in 1984. She was a 1992 graduate of Vidalia Comprehensive High School, and attended Brewton-Parker College in Mt. Vernon and East Georgia College in Swainsboro for her pre-nursing degree. She subsequently earned her Licensed Practical Nurse degree from Southeastern Technical College in Vidalia. Suzie worked at Lovins Realty before starting her nursing career at Georgia Home Healthcare & Hospice (GHHH) in 2009. When GHHH transitioned to Amacìta Home Health in 2010, Suzie continued her work serving her homebound patients in Vidalia and the surrounding communities. She eventually found her hospice home in the family atmosphere of Community Hospice in Vidalia. It was here that she worked from October 2013 until June 2018, providing unwavering support to terminally ill patients and their families and caregivers. She loved every moment of her hospice career! She had a servant’s heart and there was no purer love than that which she gave to her patients as they faced their personal end-of-life journeys. In June of 2018, Suzie accepted a position as the school nurse at Montgomery County Elementary School in Mount Vernon, Georgia. Becoming a school nurse gave her the chance to spend more time with her son, Lige Fowler, making memories and enjoying summers with the little boy she loved more than anything on this earth. She recognized that her precious son was growing up much too quickly, and she did not want to miss a single minute of his journey. Suzie thrived as a school nurse. She adored the children she served and the families she met along the way. She referred to the MCES and MCMS students often, and would share with the world, “My school babies keep me on my toes.” We all know, of course, that it was probably quite the opposite, with Suzie keeping everyone she knew on THEIR toes. What we would give to have just one more “on our toes” moment with Suzie, listening to her quick wit, her infectious laughter, and being entertained by her hysterical antics. Though Suzie loved her school work, she nonetheless remained an active member of the Community Hospice team as a PRN nurse on nights and weekends. She viewed her patients as family and leaving them completely was never an option for her. Suzie attended the Uvalda Church of God and Connection Church in Vidalia. She enjoyed crafts, plants, and going to the coast and river. She was preceded in death by her parents, Wanda Sue Oglesby Mobley and Jimmy Lee Mobley.
Her family includes her son, Lige Fowler of Vidalia; her former husband, Nathan Fowler of the Long Pond Community; her brother, Kevin J. Mobley and wife Karen, her niece and nephew, Madison Mobley and Heath Mobley, all of Statesboro; and aunts and uncles – Debbie Johnson of Augusta, Gloria Connor and husband Donald of Sylvania, Dale Oglesby and wife Sally of Girard, Cindy Widener of Hephzibah, and Kathryn Mobley Chandler.
During Suzie’s illness, many provided care and kindness along the way, especially three who spent countless hours by her side advocating for her medical care and for Lige’s well-being, Julie Spivey, Michelle Coleman, and her “Crazy Aunt Debbie.”
“Shoo, O how we miss you already! We are all so much better for having had you in our lives! We look forward to the day when we see you again!”
