Salt Lake City, UT-Toi Lee Fowler, age 86, died after a brave and exhausting battle with cancer. Toi Lee simply decided she missed the love of her life, her sweet, loving husband, Greg, and she needed to be with him. She was born and grew up in Ashton, Idaho. She attended school in Ashton, Drummond and Rigby, Idaho.
Early in her adventures, Toi Lee discovered her passion and became a licensed Cosmetologist. After earning success and opening her own salon in Idaho Falls, Idaho, she moved to Salt Lake City, Utah and devoted most of her career to Peerless Beauty Supply Co. in various capacities, making life-long friends and loving every minute of her professional life. She lived a purposeful and rewarding life teaching in the beauty profession, always finding opportunities to help others. She influenced countless students in the art of hair color and inspired those around her to learn, grow and become excellent in their profession. She was always loyal and loving with her family and friends, and she will be missed.
She found her soulmate, Greg Fowler, and they married in 1984. They enjoyed boating, golfing, water skiing and travel. The love between them was strong and grew when they faced together Greg’s diagnosis of Parkinson’s Disease and the challenges it created. Toi Lee lost her best friend to the disease in their 30th year of marriage, and after that she was never the same. Their love for each other was kind, generous and beautiful.
Toi Lee was an avid sports enthusiast, including her loyal support of the Chicago Bears and Cubs and the Utah Jazz.
Toi Lee is survived by her Sister Edna Reece Gerard of Iona, Idaho and nieces and nephews. Preceded in death by her husband, Greg Fowler, parents Sammie and Clara Reece and four sisters.
