Ruth Marie Lowe passed away peacefully on December 26, 2017 in Sugar Land, Texas, with her son Dean, by her side. She was born in Elgin on April 22, 1928, and was the daughter of George and Marie Stumpf. Ruth had been employed by the Elgin Community College for 22 years prior to retirement, and was a resident of Elgin all of her life before the onset of dementia and her need for additional care resulted in a transition to Texas four years ago. Ruth was a lifelong member of Wesley United Methodist Church and had been an active participant in its programs, including Meals on Wheels, and a member of multiple bowling leagues and Pinochle clubs for decades in Elgin. Rarely seen without a smile on her face, Ruth was a friend to every one she met and loved by so many, especially her family. Her legacy will live on through hearts she touched and laughter she shared. She was preceded in death by her husband of 49 years, Donald R. Lowe, her parents, and her granddaughter, Erin Lowe. She is survived by her sons, Ross Lowe of Chadwick, Illinois and Dean (Sandra) Lowe of Sugar Land, Texas, three granddaughters, Anne (Robert) Pilgrim, Kelsey and Abby Lowe, three great granddaughters, Natalie, Elaina and Allie Pilgrim, and her sister, Margaret Longacre of Modesto, California. A memorial and celebration service will be held on Saturday, January 13th at 1:00 PM at Wesley United Methodist Church, 1070 South Street, Elgin, IL 60123. In lieu of flowers, memorials may be given in Ruth’s name to Wesley United Methodist Church. Laird Funeral Home, Elgin. 847-741-8800 or www.lairdfamilyfuneralservices.com.
