May 8, 1930 – February 26, 2020
Anel Dauryne (Brewer) Blowers, a life-long resident of California, died Wednesday, February 26, 2020.
Anel was born in Hanford, California, on May 8, 1930, to Jack Keith and Ellen Erleen (Donahoo) Brewer, their first of three children. She graduated from Hanford High School with the class of 1948, having been active in Valkyries, a girls' social club, and a member of The Honor Society. She received her RN license in 1952, having earned her Bachelor of Science in Nursing from Orange County General Hospital Training Center for Nurses in 1951. She worked as an operating room nurse at various hospitals, including Hanford Community and Sacred Heart. Nursing became part-time as her greatest joy was being a homemaker, wife, mother, grandmother and great-grandmother. Family was everything to Anel.
She was an active and involved member of the Pioneer School Mother's Club, serving many terms as an officer as well as being a Grangeville 4-H leader, holding cooking and food preservation classes for numerous groups of young girls. Always sociable, Anel enjoyed her time as a member of the International Phi Sigma Alpha sorority, sharing luncheons and attending events with her sorority sisters, both locally and throughout the state. She loved a good card game and spent many hours playing with her friends and family, especially her granddaughters.
