Nevin Glenn Lowe of Wooster, Ohio passed away on June 2, 2023, at the age of 83 after complications due to an extended illness. In his final moments, he was surrounded by loved ones.
Nevin is survived by his beautiful wife, Sedina, their three children, Patty Senesac of Wooster, Mike (Vicki) Lowe of North Royalton, and Chris (Tim) Wile of Wooster, and two of his brothers, James (Lois) Lowe of Mt. Vernon and Eugene Lowe of West Salem. Also surviving are Nevin and Sedina’s 10 grandchildren and 14 great-grandchildren. Preceding him in death were his parents, Glenn and Mabel Lowe, and siblings Doris Ickes, Lemoine Lowe and Gerald Wayne Lowe.
Nevin was a graduate of Northwestern High School where he played clarinet in the school band and helped on the family farm. In 1961, he married Sedina Collins, whom he met working at Wooster’s Value Center together. For many years, Nevin worked in retail selling items ranging from apparel and sporting goods to plumbing and cleaning supplies. He owned a small business (Allstate Acceptance) located inside the Freeman Building in downtown Wooster for many years.
Gardening was one of Nevin’s greatest pleasures, as well as meticulously maintaining his lawn, feeding the birds and enjoying the nature that surrounded him. From flowers and trees to fruits and vegetables, he loved nurturing his plants. Perhaps more notably, Nevin was known to have a fantastic sense of humor, evidenced by a ready arsenal of jokes and his contagious laughter (often accompanied by very loud hand slaps on the table). He had very strong opinions on virtually every topic and was more than happy to share them with anyone who dared to ask. Nevin enjoyed musicals and would often break into song (Oklahoma being one of his favorites). Later in life, he adopted a somewhat inexplicable yet endearing interest in alpacas, so he and Sedina traveled the area visiting alpaca farms, usually returning with the softest, warmest socks he could find.
Of the many things Nevin loved in life, none could top his family (in spite of what he might have told you). From Dina and his three kids, who he pestered to the end, to his grandchildren and great-grandchildren, he was so proud. He always looked forward to spending time with each of them and sharing the latest family news or a very detailed explanation of one of his favorite television programs, such as Mansfield Court TV. Nevin’s family will miss his laughter and his advice (even the unsolicited kind), but they will forever be grateful for the bond and the memories they share thanks to his and Sedina’s commitment and love.
