Betty Ellen Lowrie, 86, passed away December 16, 2017 in Grapevine, TX.

Betty was born on July 3, 1931 in Lubbock to parents Maude L. Harper and Robert L. Owens. She was a loving mother, grandmother and great grandmother who devoted her life to taking care of other's needs before her own.

Betty loved Willie Nelson and her dogs, and had a quick sense of humor right up to the very end. She spent 49 years trying to raise Penny...but oh well, like Merle sang, "Mama Tried". She's probably been fussing with her brother Jerry and sister Patsy ever since they reunited Saturday afternoon.

Survivors include children Bill Lowrie, Toni Kulesa, Joe Lowrie and Penny Wilkins, grand children BJ, Michelle, Don Jr., Brandon, Shane, and 7 great-grandchildren. Betty was preceded in death by her sister Patsy Adams and brother Jerry Owens.

A visitation will be Wednesday, December 20, 2017 from 5-7pm. Graveside services will take place, Thursday, December 21, 2017 at 10am.

Arrangements under the direction of Resthaven Funeral Home & Memorial Park, Lubbock, TX.
