Inez A. Lowe, 102, Dunkirk, died Saturday, September 3, 2022 at IU Health Ball Memorial Hospital after a short illness. Born July 1, 1920 in Logan, West Virginia, she moved to Dunkirk in 1959. Inez worked at Kerr Glass for almost 20 years before retiring in 1978. During World War II, she worked at the factory in Oak Ridge, TN, where the atomic bomb was manufactured. She was also a grocery clerk and bookkeeper for an auto repair shop. For 26 years, she spent summers in Norris Lake, Tennessee and winters in Lakeport, Florida, where she taught Sunday school and helped school children. She was an avid reader and enjoyed watching sports, taking walks, working with flowers, and gardening. She was a member of the First American Baptist Church, Union Local 96, and the American Legion Post 227 Auxiliary. Inez attributed her 102 years to being positive and being happy – something she achieved thanks to her unpleasant, caring, smiling and loving personality. She was a treasure and will be greatly missed. Survivors include 4 sons: Gordon L. Lowe (wife: Ginger), Redkey, Clarence L. Lowe (wife: Marty), Center, AL, Alton R. Lowe (wife: Reba), Dunkirk and Warren D. Lowe (wife : January), Portland; 2 daughters: Virginia S. Henry (husband: Richard), Redkey and Debra L. Whitesell (husband: Chris), Dunkirk; one sister: Sheila Lowe, Mechanicsville, VA; 18 grandchildren, 27 great-grandchildren, 7 great-great-grandchildren and several nieces and nephews. She is predeceased by her husband of 71 years, 6 months and 5 days: Raymond L. Lowe; one daughter: Sharon R. Price; one granddaughter: Teresa Lowe; parents: Levi & Ada (Sharp) Anderson; 2 sisters: Nadine Neal and (baby) Christine Anderson, and 2 stepdaughters: Florene (Pergram) Lowe and Ruth Ann (Morris) Lowe. Services will be held at 1 p.m. on Wednesday, September 7, 2022 at the First American Baptist Church, Dunkirk, with the Reverend Dan Coffman officiating. Interment will take place at a later date at Carson Memorial Cemetery, Oneida, TN. Visiting hours are Wednesdays from 12 p.m. to 1 p.m. at the Church of Dunkirk.
