Loyce Mae Lowry McGlone
May 11, 1925 to May 26, 2015
The Lowry Clan
Mom was the 4th of five children. She told me once she was so glad when Aunt Clara was born. She was no longer the "baby"! Her dad died when she was just 18 years old. And then the years passed and Mom was the last of the Lowry clan. Her Mother, two sisters and two brothers had all Gone Home. I asked her one day how it felt to be the last of her family to be living. She said it was lonely but then she always had us. "Who can be too lonely when so many who are here care about me."
Mom's Senior Picture
Mom and Dad were married on March 1, 1946 at St. Catherine of Siene Church in Denver, Colorado. Mom joined two other families who loved here dearly. She became a McGlone and joined the Catholic Church. Daddy's mother had died when he was 13 years old and his dad died just 6 months after I was born in June of 1947. But there were The Folks. Aunts Mary, Rose and Ida and cousin Pat. She dearly loved these ladies as they did her. And growing up we all experienced the love they contributed to our family.
Mom and Dad just before my arrival
Daddy died in June, 1995 just before his 80th birthday. Since Mom no longer had any family living near her we, her children, suggested she move near on of her children...not to be confused with living with one of her children as she never would have stood for that. She moved to Versailles, MO. Where she lived for 5 years before finally settling down in Billings, MT. There she lived, happy in her Mission Ridge Community for 15 years. Her friends were countless and her generosity and humor were renowned.
