LITTLE FALLS-Barbara Lee Lowell age 73 passed away peacefully on Sunday evening July 21, 2019, in Little Falls Hospital. She had the support and love of her family at her side.
She was born on November 12, 1945, in Ilion, daughter of the late Leland and Martha Reilly Armstrong. Barbara was raised and educated in Ilion. On September 29, 1984, she was united in marriage to Donald C. Lowell in Ilion. They made their home in Virginia where Mrs. Lowell worked for Glouster County Waste Management. They returned to Little Falls in 2013.
In her leisure time enjoyed doing ceramics. She had made a ceramic Christmas scene that took up her entire dining room table. She saw to it that every figurine had its own particular place in this magnificent display. She made Christmas special to all her friends and family. Barbara also had a special place in her heart for animals. Her yard had bird feeders, squirrel feeders and welcomed any other furry creature that decided to visit. She will always be remembered as a loving, caring and giving lady and will be truly missed.
She is survived by her devoted husband of thirty-four years, Donald, two daughters; Sheryl McCumber and her husband Stephen, Deborah Kimball and her husband George all of Frankfort, two sons; Russell Elthorp Sr. of Brookfield, Kevin Elthorp and his wife Trista of Stratford, a brother Richard Armstrong and his wife Cindy of Ilion, nine grandchildren, six great-grandchildren, several nieces, nephews and cousins.
