Sister Dwina Marie Towle, SND (Dwina Cecelia Towle), 80, died Sunday, May 13, 2018 in Newbury Park. She was born July 20, 1937 in Santa Monica and was a 42-year Ventura County resident.

She was the daughter of Myron and Alice Filkins Towle, was born and lived the early years of her life in the West Los Angeles area. She considered herself especially blest to be the middle child of five children. She wrote, "I had the joy, happiness, and advantage of knowing those older and those younger throughout my entire life. I am very close to my family and enjoy being part of their lives." Sister Dwina Marie loved life and she readily joined in the fun for special celebrations, holidays and feast days. She was eager to participate in various activities and refused to use her physical limitations as an excuse. She had the wonderful ability to pay attention to detail and beauty. She delighted in caring for the flowers in the outdoor courtyard, working jigsaw puzzles and engaged in knitting and crocheting. Sister Dwina Marie's ready and radiant smile, her genuine interest in others, and her gentle presence, will be greatly treasured and sorely missed.

Sister Dwina Marie is survived by her sisters, Mrs. Patricia Stevens of Redmond, WA and Mrs. Diane Marshall of Moorestown, NJ; nephews, Mr. John Towle of Saint George, UT and Mr. Stephen Feist of Beverly, NJ; and nieces, Mrs. Kristin Pitt of Redmond, WA, Mrs. Vicki DeShazo of Bellevue, WA, and Mrs. Deby Kauffman of Robbinsville, NJ. She was preceded in death by her parents, Mr. Myron Towle and Mrs. Alice Towle and brothers, Mr. Donald Towle and Mr. Myron Towle, JR.
