February 17, 2021

Jean E. Dower, 92, passed away peacefully surrounded by her family on Tuesday, February 16, 2021 at Maria Hall Hospice in Danville, PA.  She was born September 14, 1928 in Passaic, NJ, the daughter of the late Jacob and Sarah M. Scraver Allman.

She graduated from Hackensack High School in 1946 and from the Paine Hall School in New York City in 1950 as a medical assistant.  Later, she graduated from St. Vincentís Hospital School of Nursing in Montclair, NJ as an LPN.

Jean was married for 44 years to Maurice ďGusĒ Dower who preceded her in death on May 2, 2004.  They were married December 8, 1959.                                    

Jean was employed in the medical field for many years.  She retired from Hackensack Medical Center in 1989.

She was a member of First Baptist Church in Danville, PA where she served in the Vocal Choir, Handbell Choir, as a Greeter and also in the Nursery for Ladies Bible Study.  One of her greatest joys was leading and teaching Bible Studies.  She was a member of the Northumberland Senior Action Center where she led a Menís and Womenís Chorus which performed at local Assisted Living and Nursing Home facilities several times a year.

Jean was an avid vegetable and flower gardener and loved music.   She enjoyed traveling to visit her children, all of whom she adored. 

She will be remembered for her kindness and her love of family.  She loved being a part of all their activities.  Jean lived her faith fully.  She had a sacrificial and generous heart. Jeanís greatest request was this: ďI want people to see the Lord through my children.Ē
