Violet "Vi" Lowther, 98, longtime resident of Alaska, passed away peacefully on July 5, 2018, at home with family at her side. Vi was born on Dec. 11, 1919, in Bayard, Neb., to Earl and Mary Moore. Vi lived in Douglas, Wyo., for many years, where she raised five children. In 1966, she drove up the Alcan Highway and settled in Anchorage. In 1980, she met and married Lloyd Lowther. They loved to go square dancing all over the state.
Vi worked many years at JC Penney's and upon retiring about 33 years ago, she immediately started volunteering, first as a driver for cancer patients, then for Alaska State Troopers (1991-2007) and finally as a bulk mailer and knitter for the Retired and Senior Volunteer Program (RSVP). She was a kind and loving mother, wife, sister and friend. She is survived by her five children, Robert Hall (Norma) of Minnesota, Gladys Kentner of Missouri, Larry Hall (Carol) of Nevada, Joyce Dey of Montana, and Ken Hall of Anchorage; her sisters, Ruth Taylor of California and Genevieve Ayles of Oregon; and brother, Ronald Moore of Washington; 10 grandchildren; 24 great-grandchildren; one special friend, Mary Jordan; and many nieces and nephews. She was preceded in death by her daughter, Penny; and her husband, Lloyd.
The family would like to thank the staff at Providence Hospice for their kind care during her final days.
A private family service will be held at a later date. She will be cremated and her ashes buried next to her late husband, Lloyd Lowther at the Fort Richardson National Cemetery in Anchorage.
