Helen (Cogdill) Lowery January 12, 1926-August 9, 2014 IICorinthians 5:8 We are confident, I say, and willing rather to be absent from the body, and to be present with the Lord. Our beloved mother, Helen (Cogdill) Lowery went to be with the Lord on August 9, 2014. Helen was born in Clear Lake, Wash. on January, 12, 1926, to Selma and William M. Cogdill. She graduated from Sedro Woolley High School, Everett Junior College, and attended Multnomah Bible College in Portland. She was preceded in death by her parents; her beloved husband, Jim; brother, Don; sister-in-law, Nelva; and brother-in-law, Bill. Survivors include her two daughters, Susan (Richard) Barcott, Cappy (Bob) Atkinson of Calif.; sister, Maxine Hellum; brothers, Robert Cogdill and W. Mitchell (Marsha) Cogdill; and sister-in-law, Signe Cogdill. Helen loved to be with her many grandchildren: Lisa, Adam, Bridget, Jamie, Molly, Wesley, Callie, Alec; and great-grandchildren, Andrew, Halie, Lowery, Grace, Sophia, Taylor, Avery, and Van; as well as her loving nieces and nephews, Carolyn, Ken, Eileen, Robin, Jaclyn, Don, Lynne, Bob, Nelson, Kaila, and Mika. Helen was actively involved in Calvary Baptist Church in Everett, as a Sunday School teacher. Later, she attended Westminster Presbyterian, where she served as the church librarian for many years. Helen loved books, and always had a book she was reading. She and her late husband, Jim, traveled extensively to Europe, Soviet Union, Hong Kong, China and other parts of the world. Helen enjoyed entertaining family and friends in her home. She was always involved in Bible Study, beginning as early as age 14 when she taught a Sunday School class. When her daughters were young, she helped sponsor Child Evangelism and Good News Clubs. Several years later she joined Everett's Christian Women's Club, twice serving as it's chairwoman. After her retirement from Providence Hospital, as an Administrative Secretary in the Pathology Dept., she became a Bible Study Fellowship leader. Helen truly had a "servant's heart," always willing to do whatever she could to help others. She will be missed by her loving family and many dear friends. Memorial services will be held at 11 a.m. on Saturday, August 16, 2014, at the Westminster Presbyterian Church, 2531 Hoyt Ave., Everett. Reception following.
