Peyton Elizabeth Fowler, 19

A celebration of the life of Peyton Elizabeth Fowler, 19, of Mountain Home, Arkansas, will be held at 2 p.m. today (March 3) in the First Baptist Church gymnasium in Mountain Home with Dr. Tad Rogers officiating. Due to current covid-19 restrictions, masks are encouraged. Peyton died Feb. 27, 2021, near Caulfield.

She was born Feb. 22, 2002, in Little Rock, Arkansas. She was the daughter of Mat and Shelia Fowler of Mountain Home, and Ashley and John Banks of Little Rock. She was a 2020 graduate of Mountain Home High School. 

Peyton was many things to many people and had a way of making people feel special. She was quick witted and could be silly and goofy. She cared about those close to her. Friends and family knew her as a beautiful person, inside and out. She was her true, authentic self all the time and didn’t care what other people thought of her or her choice of clothing.

She loved going out on the lake, listening to music, riding at Cloud 9 with her friends and playing with her dogs Riley and Jax, and she always had to a Sonic drink in her hand. She was known for falling asleep midway through movies in movie theaters – except for the scary, nail-biting films.

She loved the idea of her niece, Laiken, following in her footsteps and playing soccer this coming year. Peyton bought her a soccer ball and wrote Laiken an encouraging message on it.

Peyton was good at shooting out quick texts to her sisters just to let them know they were on her mind. She loved deeply and will be greatly missed. 

Survivors include her father, Mat Fowler and wife Shelia of Mountain Home; her mother, Ashley Banks and husband John of Little Rock; her sister, Bailey Nikole Fowler of Fayetteville, Arkansas; half-sisters Emma Banks of Little Rock, Courtney Salmon and husband Patrick of Mountain Home and Samantha Morehead of Kansas; her brother Chris Snieckus (and Jordan Thomas) of Bristol, Vermont; paternal grandmother Dana Fowler; maternal grandmother Nancy Clark; aunt Calley Andrews of Florida; uncles Eric Moring of Florida and Mike Moring; great-uncle and great-aunt Bill and Vicki Mathews of Benton, Arkansas; nieces Laiken, Ellis, Ainsley and Emerson; her boyfriend, Jacob Waugh; and many other family members and friends.
