Evelyn Lowe Notice
Mrs Evelyn Lowe (nee Green), of Brimington, has passed away peacefully at Chesterfield Royal Hospital, aged 99.
Born at Brimington, she moved to Peterlee, County Durham, following marriage in 1940 and returned to Brimington more than 35 years ago.
Evelyn, a widow since husband Sid died 17 years ago, leaves daughter Sandra, son-in-law David, granddaughter Samantha and nephews Paul and Martyn.
She worked at a pottery factory in Pottery Lane, Whittington Moor, after leaving school and was a clippie on the Chesterfield buses during the Second World War and until marriage. Evelyn then became a care worker in Peterlee until retirement, moving back to Chesterfield to care for her sister Joyce, who pre-deceased her.
Evelyn, who passed two weeks before her 100th birthday, was an active lady who helped out at the Blind Institute in Glumangate, until she was 83. She enjoyed reading novels, especially about the war era, and stories by Catherine Cookson. Evelyn also loved gardening, caring for her pet cats and watching the Inspector George Gently dramas and 'soaps' on television.
She liked shopping and holidays in Spain, Jersey and around the UK, particularly the east coast. In younger years she enjoyed cycling trips with sister Joyce and friends.
A funeral service is due to take place at Chesterfield Crematorium at 1.30pm on Monday December 2. Donations given in memory of Evelyn will go to the RSPCA.
