Let the family know you care by sharing this tribute.

Lillian May Lowry, age 68, of Lakeview, passed away Saturday, September 7, 2013 at her home under the loving care of her family and Hospice of Michigan after a battle with lung cancer.

The daughter of Robert & Ruth (Dooling) Lepley, she was born on February 4, 1945 in Grand Rapids. On January 6, 1962 she married David Ross Lowry and together they enjoyed 51 years of marriage and raised two children. A devoted wife and mother, Lillian was a volunteer with the Montcalm County 4-H Fair Association for over 30 years, served as a den mother and Girl Scout leader for her children, and co-founded, with long-time friend Diane Briggs, the Lakeview Horse Club.

Surviving are her husband, David Lowry; their children, Robert “Bob” Lowry and Trina & Joe Edmondson; four grandchildren; two great-grandchildren; four sisters, Betty, Lucy “Dawn”, Madeline and Rose; and many nephews, nieces, cousins, in-laws and friends, as well as four special pets — two dogs and two cats.

Honoring her wishes no formal services will be held, however, relatives and friends are invited to celebrate Lillian’s life from 2-5 p.m. on Saturday, September 14, 2013 at the Hough Pontius VFW Post, 8968 N. Greenville Road, Lakeview (located on M-91 just south of the M-46 intersection).

Instead of flowers, Lillian asked that those wishing to give a lasting tribute make donations to the Montcalm County 4-H Fair Association, which may be given at any Chemical Bank.
