She received her B.A. degree from Howard Payne University in 1937 and a master's in religious education from Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary in 1938.
She was appointed as a missionary to serve in Nigeria on Dec. 8, 1938, by the Foreign Mission Board of the Southern Baptist Convention. Her place of service was the Baptist Girls School, Abeokuta, Nigeria. She was on the faculty for a number of years and then was appointed president of Baptist Women's College, also located in Abeokuta. Feeling very deeply that this was God's place of service for her, she spent a part of each furlough trying to prepare herself for the best that she could be. She therefore earned a master's degree from George Peabody College (now a part of Vanderbilt University) in Nashville, Tenn., and a doctorate in religious education from Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary in Fort Worth. She also was named Distinguished Alumni by Howard Payne University in 1982.
She retired from active missionary service on Jan. 1, 1979. As long as health permitted, she was very active in her local church, First Baptist of San Angelo, where she was a Sunday school teacher, worker in women's organizations and a missionary speaker whenever asked.

Dow and his wife, Annette, of Austin; great-nephew, Matthew Dow and his wife, Lisa, and two daughters, Clara and Emily, of Austin; great-nephew, Gregory Dow and his wife, Sharon, and their two sons, Collin and Zachary, of Houston; and great-nephew, Luke Dow of Austin.

For many years the flame has been a symbol for countless objects.
It has been used to be a symbol of GOD and the HOLY SPIRIT.
But one way many people don't see a flame as being a representative of their inner selves.
I will be the yellow flame, because I like to take it easy and take my time.
The flame would represent my heart which is warm,
The side of me that is easy going and the part of me that continues to burn.
Or keep going no matter how bad it gets.
The day I give up and let go will be the day I die.
The people around me that care for me are the ones that will keep,
My fire lit and to them I owe everything.
By Ernest Chavez
