MAUREEN RUTH LOWE
May 29, 1932 - January 11, 2021

Maureen Lowe, beloved wife, mother, grandmother, aunt, and friend, passed away peacefully at the Golden Door Geriatric Centre on Monday, January 11, where she had lived for the past two years with dementia.
She will be forever missed and always loved and leaves to mourn; daughter Sharon (Gord); sons, Ken (Maureen) and Craig; grandchildren, Trent, Lee, Michael, Danielle, Chris, nieces and nephews. Mum was predeceased by her beloved husband of 66 years, George Lowe (March 21, 2020); her parents, Lewis and Florence James; and brother Don (Thelma) James.
Mum was born in Calgary and in her early childhood years the family moved to Winnipeg. Mum and Dad met at Sparling United Church Youth Group, where they fell in love and married in 1953. They settled roots in Fort Garry and a raised their family there.
In her early years she worked at Monarch Life, later staying at home to look after the family. Once the kids were of age Mum took on a second career working at Manitoba Hydro in the library until she retired in 1991. Her and Dad spent many winters together in Apache Junction Arizona with close friends enjoying their retirement life.
Mum was an outgoing and fun-loving person who loved entertaining, getting together with friends and family, playing games, and travelling. She was active throughout her life playing golf, curling, and loved any kind of card game, especially bridge. She loved playing games with the grandkids. She belonged to two lady's bridge clubs and a mixed bridge club with Dad, and developed numerous close friendships from this. Many of whom her and dad ended up travelling together with on many of their trips and endeavors.
Mum loved spending time at the family cottage with dad, family, and friends. There were many laughs and countless memories. There was always room for one more unexpected guest at the lake and Mum would welcome them with open arms. Her blueberry pies and baking of all kinds were synonymous with good eating down at the lake and at family gatherings. Mum was a wonderful cook and felt at home in the kitchen. We will miss her special family meals and get togethers.

Mum (Grandma), we will miss you dearly
and always have you close in our hearts.
May you rest in peace now that
you and Dad are together again.

A service will be held at a later date.
Special thanks to the Golden Door staff for all the wonderful care and comfort Mum received during her time there.

Condolences & Memories (5 entries)

  • I had the pleasure of working with Maureen at the Manitoba Hydro Library for a few years before she retired. I remember her as being consistently reliable, cheerful, and friendly. Mostly though, she was an absolute anchor — the kind of person every work group needs and every co-worker treasures. Maureen often shared stories about her family; clearly you were her pride and joy. I am so sorry for your loss. - Posted by: Paulette Mazur (Manitoba Hydro co-worker) on: Feb 23, 2021

  • My sincere sympathy to Maureen’s family. I was saddened to learn of Maureen’s passing. She was a valued friend and co-worker at Hydro which continued in our annual gatherings in retirement.

  • Maureen and I belonged to the same bridge club for many years, along with Betty Swarbrick - another dear friend - and shared many good times together. She and George were two of the nicest and kindest people I could possibly even think of, whose family meant everything to them.
