TERESA LOWRY September 20, 1938 - March 14, 2013 Beloved wife, mother, and grandmother, passed away on March 14, at age 74. She was a loving wife to Paul Lowry of Woodcrest, CA., a giving mother to their children, Terri Lowry Rovarino, Sean Lowry and Brenda Lowry Pokorny, and doting grandmother to their three grandchildren, Aisling Rovarino, Brigida Rovarino and Anthony Pokorny. Teresa was born in County Cork, Ireland. She studied nursing and was recruited to The United States by Santa Rosa Hospital in the city of San Antonio, TX. She next moved to Chicago where she worked at St. Ann's Hospital, married Paul Lowry, and started a family. She journeyed with her family to Woodcrest, CA in 1977, where she would reside for her remaining years. In these years, Teresa continued her nursing career as an in-home caretaker, providing quality and gentle comfort and care to the elderly and disabled. Gracious and deeply kind, Teresa will be remembered as a truly lovely and easygoing lady, a gifted crocheter, loyal friend and, above all, a devoted wife and mother. She was active in her church, serving in the bereavement group at St. Catherine's of Alexandria Catholic Church for nearly 15 years.
