Birdie Estelle Towery, beloved wife, mother, grandmother, sister and friend, entered into eternal peace in the arms of our Heavenly Father on March 13, 2011. Born on July 22, 1922 in Elgin, Texas, to August and Molly Samuelson. Birdie graduated from Incarnate Word University and worked as a lab technician at Santa Rosa Hospital. It was here she met the love of her life and husband of 48 years, H.E. "Ed" Towery. She has missed Ed terribly since his passing in 1995, and they are now "Together Forever". Following the birth of their daughter, Birdie retired and became a full time homemaker. Her greatest joy was taking care of her family.

She and Ed taught Sunday School, helped in the church office, served as greeters and worked on committees such as Care and Concern. She was a strong Christian woman who was always there when someone needed help.
