Sada Neal Lowe

Sada Neal Lowe, 95, passed away on September 6, 2018, at her home.

She was born on October 6, 1922, in Irvine, KY to Harvey and Eliza (Sparks) Neal. She retired from Miami University in Oxford, OH, in 1983. Throughout her life she worked as a practical nurse, cosmetologist, and Navy Wave. After 2 decades of RV traveling with her husband, James William (Bill), they moved to Courtyard Towers Senior Living Community in Mesa, AZ, where she volunteered and held several positions on the residents' board. She enjoyed bowling, knitting, and reading but mostly talking ... talking ... talking. She never met a stranger.

She is survived by her 3 children, Brenda Lowe (Terry Hertel), Barry Lowe (Sherry Columbia), and Bill Lowe (Becky Day Lowe); sister, Laura "Sally" Ridge; 6 grandchildren, Shawnna Collett, Lance Whitsell, Jessica Johnson, Coy McCampbell, Maria Burchum, and James Lowe; 9 3/4 great grandchildren (baby Charlotte is due in November), one great-great-grandchild, and 3 generations of nieces and nephews.

Sada is preceded in death by her husband, Bill; daughter, Betty Whitsell; parents, Harvey and Eliza Neal; and 3 sisters, Devella Johnson, Mary West, and Lois Achterhof. Burial will be next to her husband at Valley Grove Cemetery.
