Sarah J. Lower

Nov. 29, 2017

Sarah Joan Lower, 76, returned to her Heavenly Home Nov. 29 after a valiant battle with a long illness. Her devotion to family and firm belief in God supported her in her struggle and ultimately gave her peace.

She was born to the late Daniel and Sara Aurandt of Williamsburg, Penn., Dec. 25, 1940. She was immersed in the Christian community that would be her lifelong support from an early age. She was an ordained minister of music from the Church of God, Cleveland, Tenn.

She was a graduate of Williamsburg High School, Williamsburg, Penn., in June 1958 and later received a diploma of stenograph-secretary from Altoona, Penn., School of Commerce and Zeth, Inc.

Later in life, after raising her children, she graduated from Lorain Community College in Lorain,

Ohio, with an associate’s degree in applied science–computer programming.

Sarah married her best friend, Wayne Byron Lower, May 15, 1959, in Williamsburg, Penn. Sarah raised her three children with patience, discipline and humility. From the very beginning, she dedicated her children to God and encouraged them to explore the beauty of the gospels.

Sarah’s love and faith in Christ were unwavering, which influenced those closest to her – her family and friends.

She is preceded in death by her daughter, Julie Lorene Lower; her brother, Thomas Aurandt; her sister, Wanda Aurandt Timperly; and her parents.

Survivors include her husband, Wayne B. Lower; one son, Timothy Wayne Lower; one daughter, Karen Elizabeth Lower; two brothers, Daniel Aurandt and Kenneth Aurandt; one sister, Shirley Aurandt Kurtz Flaugh; and grandchildren, Cory Mitchel Lower and Jayson Daniel Lower.

Funeral service was Dec. 2 at 1 p.m. at Peck Funeral Home Chapel with Bro. John Chesser officiating and Peck Funeral Home directing. Burial was in Burningtree Memorial Gardens.
