We are deeply sorry for your loss - the staff at Meacham Funeral Service
Inez A. Lowe, age 102, Dunkirk, died Saturday September 3, 2022 at IU Health Ball Memorial Hospital following a short illness. Born July 1, 1920 in Logan, West Virginia, she moved to Dunkirk in 1959. Inez worked at Kerr Glass for nearly 20 years before retiring in 1978. During WWII she worked at the plant in Oak Ridge, TN, where the atomic bomb was manufactured. She was also a grocery store clerk and auto repair shop bookkeeper. For 26 years she spent summers on Norris Lake in Tennessee and winters in Lakeport, Florida, where she taught Sunday school and assisted with school children. She was an avid reader and enjoyed watching sports, taking walks, working with flowers, and gardening. She was a member of First American Baptist Church, Union Local 96, and American Legion Post 227 Auxiliary. Inez attributed her 102 years to being positive and being happy – which she accomplished through her ornery, caring, smiling, and loving personality. She was a treasure and will be greatly missed.
