Burial will be in Moravian Falls Cemetery. The family will receive friends from 1:00 until 2:45 PM prior to the service in the church fellowship hall.

Mrs. Lowe was born October 18, 1931 in Moravian Falls to Rufus Green Pennell and Collie Anna Pardue Pennell. Jane graduated from Wilkesboro High School and was selected the Farmer’s Day Queen. Jane helped to organize and plan the 1950 Class Reunions. She looked forward to seeing her classmates. Her career began at Wilkes General Hospital following graduation. In later years she worked at The Journal Patriot Office, Moravian Falls Elementary School and retired from the Inspections Department of Wilkes County Government.

Jane devoted many years as a mother and grandmother. In the early years of her marriage she worked alongside of her husband in the timber business, farming and at Lowe’s Country Casuals. She was a devoted wife caring for Caney during his extended illness and cared for her mother for the last 20 years of her life, always the devoted caregiver.

Jane was very interested in her children’s education. She also supported her children and grandchildren by attending their sporting events, piano recitals, scouting events, and all other extracurricular activities. Jane made a career of PTO meetings at Moravian Falls Elementary School and served as a Grade-Mother while her children attended school. She enjoyed many activities with her family such as vacation trips, fishing and cooking meals to share with others.

Jane is the second oldest member of Moravian Falls Baptist Church. She enjoyed singing in the choir as long as she was able. She taught Sunday School, helped with Vacation Bible School, participated in the Women’s Circle Meetings and served on the Music Committee. She enjoyed attending the Good Neighbors events. She found it hard to say no to anything that involved the church.

Her sweet smile and sweet spirit brought joy to all. Her gentle manner, graciousness and true Southern lady demeanor described “Our Miss Jane”. A devoted Christian, a loving and caring daughter to Granny Collie, and a devoted wife to her husband. A mother that loved her children and made sure they were raised in church. She loved and helped care for her grandchildren Emily and Lenny and her great grandchildren, Brooke and Dalton. She was a Rainbow Garden Club founder and loved growing and arranging flowers. Another favorite hobby was feeding and watching birds.

In addition to her parents, she was preceded in death by her husband; Caney Lowe of 49 years, sister; Inez Call and a grandson; Zach Lowe.

She is survived by a daughter; Becky Mullins and husband Sid of Wilkesboro, two sons; Len Lowe and wife; Marla of Indian Land, SC, Tom Lowe and wife; Debbie of Moravian Falls, four grandchildren; Emily Mullins, Lenny Lowe and wife Kim, Amber Keenan, Kelsey Keenan and two great grandchildren; Brook McNeil and Dalton Lowe.
