Obituary for Cora Lowery

Cora Belle Lowery, 93, died peacefully on May 27, 2017, with loving family by her side, at Boothbay Green where she had lived since December 2015. Cora was born January 27, 1924 in Boothbay to Eugene and Suzy Lewis and lived the greatest part of her life on Barter Island. She was the ninth child of eleven, and grew up on the family farm, going to local schools.

Cora worked in many different local business, perhaps the most memorable being the Harbor Shop in downtown Boothbay Harbor. She and her second husband, Ernest Lowery, also ran her sister, Katherine’s lobster roll shack, with Ernest hand-hauling lobsters for her, rushing to pick out the meat and helping her make the best sandwich in town at the time.

Cora was known for a lot of things: her incredible apple pie and pretty much everything else she ever cooked, her very quick wit and ability to “get to the point”, her love of her family, and her generosity to any one in need. Of course, they would also get a piece of her mind along with a piece of her heart! She was one of a kind and will be sorely missed by all who knew and loved her.

A very special thanks goes out to the talented and loving women at Boothbay Green who made the last year and a half of Cora’s life so incredibly comfortable. They loved and cared for her like family, showing her such respect, affection, humor, and patience. The family is eternally grateful for their care in Cora’s last days, for all the kisses on her forehead and whispering “I love you’s” in her ear.

Cora is survived by her son, Ambrose “Sonny” Artzer and his wife, Brenda of Boothbay, her sister, Priscilla Holmes of Boothbay Harbor, and her daughter-in-law, Toni Lowery of Boothbay. She is also survived by her grandchildren: Valerie Artzer and her partner, Michael Wood of Boothbay, Michael Artzer of Biddeford, Mark Artzer of Jay, Shari Plaice and her husband Rob of Cape Cod, Massachusetts, Andrew Carter of Boothbay Harbor, Lesley Blethen and her husband Brian of Boothbay, Daniel Lowery and his wife, Ashlee of Boothbay, Andrea Hodgdon and her husband Tyler of Boothbay, and Andrea "Andi" Lowery, granddaughter- in law, who spent countless hours with Cora, making her life a very happy place to be.

She is also survived by her 12 great-grandchildren; Brandon Long and his wife Julia, Adam Plaice, Andi Plaice, Joshua Greenleaf, Jeremy Greenleaf, Wyatt Artzer, Faith Blethen, Glory Blethen, Taylor Lowery, Adam Lowery, Emma Hodgdon and Gareth Hodgdon.

Cora is also survived by many nieces, nephews and cousins. Cora is predeceased by her daughter, Patricia Carter, her son, Rodney Lowery, her parents and all but one of her siblings.

A graveside service will be held on Sunday, June 4th, 2017 at 1 p.m. at Evergreen Cemetery, Barter Island Road, Boothbay. Al Roberts will officiate. All are welcome.

In lieu of flowers, the family asks that donations be made in Cora’s name to the Lincoln County Animal Shelter, 27 Atlantic Highway, Edgecomb, Maine 04556.

Hall’s of Boothbay has care of the arrangements. To extend online condolences, please visit hallfuneralhomes.com
