Erin Frances Lowrey was born on September 2, 1978 and was received by the God of her understanding on April 12, 2023.
As a child, Erin was active and happy. She loved to play on the overhead bars at her school’s playground. When she was 5, she learned to snap her fingers and whistle on the same day, twirling around the house doing both simultaneously. Her mom likes to think that she is now entertaining the children in heaven with these advanced skills.
In high school she was part of the swim, soccer, and softball teams, and won an award in poetry. She received an Associates degree from Front Range Community college and also attended Fort Lewis College and Metro State University. Education was important to Erin throughout her lifetime and she was particularly knowledgeable in higher math and physics. She often tutored others in these classes.
The loves of Erin’s life were her nephew, Brayden and her niece, Kinsley. She loved facetiming with them, showing their pictures to others and buying them gifts.
As Erin’s challenges became more difficult for her, she lived at Accel skilled nursing in Longmont. Her loving caretakers became her friends and loved her dearly.
Erin enjoyed crocheting and gave many crocheted gifts to people she loved.
From early in the pandemic until she passed, Erin was an enthusiastic member of a book club community which included her mom, her aunts, and cousins. She loved reading and particularly liked Harry Potter, Stephen King, and Dean Koontz books.
Erin was predeceased by her father, Robert “Bob” Lowrey, her grandparents, Harold and Marguerite Lowrey, Marilyn Linendoll Duhaime and Francis Linendoll, and step-grandparents, Walter and Pauline Blake.
Erin is survived by her mother and stepfather, Marilyn and Tom Blake, her brother and sister-in-law, Ryan and Maranda Blake, and her niece and nephew, Kinsley and Brayden Blake, many aunts, uncles, cousins, and beloved friends.
With Erin’s passing … the world will never be the same, our worlds will never be the same.
