Catherine "Kate" Louise MacMahon Lower, 93, passed away on December 13, 2012 at home in Anchorage, Alaska.

Kate was born on October 11, 1919 in Tacoma, Washington. She graduated from Stadium High School in Tacoma. She was married to John Lower for 64 years. He proudly served in WWII. In 1947 they moved to Alaska after John returned from the war. They lived here until they retired in 1974. They returned to Puyallup, Washington where they enjoyed their retirement years. They moved back "home" to Alaska in 2005 where they could be closer to family.

Kate was a homemaker and worked for a short period of time in the office of long time Anchorage physician, Dr. Ivy. Kate received awards for her volunteer service. She enjoyed sewing, ceramics, ballroom dancing and gardening.

"Grandma Kate was a very special person and will be missed very much. She had a great sense of humor and a contagious laugh. She was very giving towards others - always offering to help or to knit or sew a gift. We like to think she is ballroom dancing in heaven now with a smile on her face. It has been a blessing to have her in our life."

Kate is survived by her children, Jim Lower and Patti Lower; daughter-in-law, Joan Lower; grandchildren, Sean, Amy, Lynn, Sandra and Diana; great grandchildren, Gabe, Luke, Emma, Kyle, Norah, Travis, Cameron and Owen.

Kate's ashes will be scattered this summer in Alaska on Crooked Lake to join her husband of 64 years, John Lower.

Arrangements were entrusted to Kehl's Legacy Funeral Home. Published in from January 1 to January 2, 2013
