Monday, November 13th, 2017

Michael Dwaine ‘Mike’ Lowe, 69, a resident of Sedro-Woolley, passed away on Monday, November 13, 2017 at Skagit Valley Hospital in Mount Vernon.
Mike was born on January 18, 1948 in Lincoln Nebraska, the son of Dwaine & Lois (Ellyson) Lowe. In 1957 the family moved to Burlington where Mike attended school. He attended B-EHS where he was the center on the basketball team and was ASB President, graduating with the class of 1966.
In 1967 Mike enlisted in the U.S. Army serving his country during the Vietnam Conflict. Following his discharge in 1970 he attended Western Washington University and attained a Bachelor’s degree in History.
On February 12, 1972 he was united in marriage to his high school sweetheart, Linda Nuessen and they made their home in Lincoln, Nebraska where Mike attended the University of Nebraska. They returned to the Skagit Valley in 1980.
In 1982 he suffered a debilitating stroke; and he then developed a love for baking and quilting. He was able to make the most delicious pies and cookies using just one hand, and with the help of some wonderful ladies and a special tool designed by his dad he was able to make two beautiful full size quilts, with that story making the front page of the Skagit Valley Herald. He loved babies and thoroughly enjoyed all of his grandchildren.
Mike is survived by his wife, Linda (Nuessen) Lowe; son, Anthony Lowe and wife Alexa; daughter, Alison Jauron and husband James; two brothers, Jack Lowe and Jim Lowe and wife Cheryl; sister, Shelly Lowe-Whan and husband Keefer; seven grandchildren, Sophie, Eythan, Aiden, Cole, Violette, Dylan and Rowan and several nieces, nephews and extended family. He was preceded in death by his parents, and a brother Bob Lowe.
A Celebration of Life Service will be held on Saturday, November 18, 2017 at 2:00 pm at Lemley Chapel in Sedro-Woolley. Memorials in honor to Mike are suggested to Alzheimer’s Research. Please share memories of Mike and sign the online guest register. “GO BIG RED”

    It is with great sadness that I learned of Mike’s passing. My heart goes out to his family and friends. I will always remember the years growing up in Burlington as Mike’s friend, classmate, and basketball teammate. We had some exciting times and the friendship was deeply felt. The years have separated us, but the memories are forever. Thanks for the times and the memories, ol’ buddy, and rest in peace. God bless your loving family who can cherish your legacy. I can still hear your laugh and see that broad smile you always bore.

    I will remember Mike for many things but two items stand out. One, he was there for my father’s funeral and gave me the biggest hug. Something I really needed at the time. He was there for me. Second, he had the biggest laugh. When we talked it may take a while for him to get his thoughts across, but when we finally understood each other he would laugh out loud.

    I looked up to Mike. I loved him and will miss him. Go Big Red!
