Ariel Jean Dowker age 24, was born at the Naval Hospital in Portsmouth, Virginia on January 10, 1996, and passed away on October 4, 2020, in Fargo, North Dakota.
She graduated from Gaylord High School in 2014. While attending the Gaylord Community Schools, she was involved in ballet, soccer, and cheerleading.
Ariel enjoyed painting, drawing, taking selfies, singing, playing guitar, and cooking. She loved many things in life, most of all, spending time with family and friends.
She was best known for her “angel eyes” and a smile that could make even a dark day shine.
Ariel is survived by her mother, Sharon (Tom) Ellis; her father, Mike (Amy) Dowker; her brothers, Briar, Deklen, Darren, and Lucas; her sister, Ember; and her grandparents, Lester and Florence Dowker and Carl and Judy Peterson.
She was an aunt to several of her friend’s children, and a daughter, granddaughter, niece, and cousin to many who loved her as such. She was a sister, both blood-related to heart-related. She is now an angel looking over us.
She was deeply loved and will be deeply missed.
A Celebration of Life will be held at the Gaylord Church of Christ, 1760 S. Otsego Ave., Gaylord MI 49735, at 2:00 p.m., on Saturday, December 5, 2020.
