Ada Philadelpha Ann Bower

January 03, 1931 - November 24, 2007


Ada was born in Cornwall England to James and Christine Stevens on January 3, 1931. Her family immigrated to Detroit Michigan and that is where she met the love of her life Clarence Bower. She was only 13 years old and he was 17. They were happily married for 50 years. The memorable stories of their love and courtship will always be remembered and cherished. They were a beautiful couple on the inside and out. They had five children together, three boys and two girls. In 1970 they moved to Mission Viejo where they continued to raise their family. Ada stayed home and devoted her life to her husband and kids placing them first over her childhood dreams. She was a talented person who enjoyed bowling, sewing, movies, and baking for her family. Ada dedicated many years of care to her parents and her husband. Her selfless dedication to her family was an incredible standard. She always stood out because she had a class and elegance that is hard to find today. Her husband adored her and often would just stare at her. Sadly she died on November 24, 2007 with her children by her side. She will be severely missed by her brother James L Stevens, 5 children, 12 grandchildren, 7 great-grandchildren, and her dog Tyler her baby.

Thanks for the Memories. You lived your life well and left a heritage that will live on. We’ll miss you!

    Dearest Ada, With great sadness I write this, How can I thank you for the example you set for me. You were such a women of excellent and grace.You were a devoted wife and loving Mother. When I think of you, I think of Titus 2:4 ” These older women must train the younger women to love their husbands and their children, 5 to live wisely and be pure, to take care of their homes, to do good, and to be submissive to their husbands..” You were all that and more. You gave so unselfishly, always putting others before you. You had a generous spirit about you. How can I ever thank you both for my Beloved Thomas. Know this, I will love and cherish him all the days of my life. Saying goodbye is hard, But I gain great comfort knowing you are with Clarence and with the Father. I am honored to be your daugther In law…. Rest in peace Mom.

    Mom, how can I thank you? You have meant more to me than anything in life.
    Your unconditional love and support has carried me through lifes ups and downs. Just hearing your words of wisdom made my pain go away. What is love mom? Love is what I felt for you. Love is demonstrated by actions that don’t change day by day. I have lost my best friend and will miss my many conversations with you before I slept at night. The times I shared with you have been the most important and powerful times in my life. So mom, I don’t know how to carry on. This is the most painful day in my entire life. I do know this; God has a reservation for you and has called you by his side.
    I will do my best to make you proud of me mom and put forth the things you have placed in me. I know you’re with dad, mom and look forward to the day that I can be with you again.

    Your Son.

  3. My Mother is my best friend. Strength and dignity are her clothing. On her head she wears a crown of integrity, and her speech is seasoned with wisdom. The laughter and love we share will live for an eternity in my heart. The walls of my soul will continue to echo the melodies she sang the mornings I crossed her doorstep. Proverbs 31 10-31 describe the character of the of women I am blessed to know and call Mother. I love you.
    Your daughter and your buddy–
