Memorial Gifts & Donations

Allois Stowers, age 89 (affectionately known by her grandchildren as Nana) was born on April 18, 1934 in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania to the late Lolee Oliver and Alice Oliver. She grew up on the North Side of Pittsburgh and attended Oliver High School.

She married William (Bill) Stowers (deceased) on March 28, 1955 and with him raised four
children Sandra, Patricia, William Jr., and Laura.

Allois was always religiously inclined from the time of her youth. She was often caught listening in when her mother allowed Jehovah’s Witnesses to speak to her in the early 1940’s while they were engaging in the door-to-door ministry. Her religious inclination was further ignited after she was invited to attend a meeting of Jehovah’s Witnesses in 1962. She was so excited by the things she was learning that she at once expressed the desire to preach to others on a full-time basis.

That was in the fall 1963 shewas just 29 years old. Allois was a very effective teacher while engaging in her full-time service. With Jehovah’s help and assistance, she was able to help many honest-hearted ones including her children to learn the truth from the bible.

She never missed an opportunity to preach to others about Jehovah’s love and his grand promises for the future. She was also well known and respected in her community for her preaching activities.

As her health started to decline, she relocated to North Carolina to be with her daughter and son-in-law where she continued to preach to everyone who came across her path. We are thankful, happy and proud that Jehovah allowed Allois to fully accomplish her ministry. Allois leaves behind her children; Sandra Zellars (Robert), Patricia Stowers, William Stowers Jr. (Sharon), Laura Hardaway (Thomas). Grandchildren Mark (deceased), Robert, Jr., Michael, Nikkia, Kiona, Lashawna, Charles, William J., Shannon, Shane, Rayna, Amber and Justin. As well as a host of great grandchildren, great, great grandchildren, nieces, nephews and extended family and friends.
