Rosemary Puz Lowman passed away on Wednesday, May 15, 2019, just days away from celebrating her 78th birthday. Rosemary was surrounded by her loving family in her home in Henderson, NV. Rosemary was raised on Vashon Island and graduated from Vashon High School in 1959.

Rosemary was the loving wife of Robert Lowman and the mother of Debbie Hogan, Cindy Lowman and Jeff Lowman.

She was a Red Cross volunteer in Kitsap County, and accepted many assignments around the country in response to fires, floods and natural disasters, including Hurricane Katrina.

Rosemary was an avid gardener and created a lovely landscape on her property in Kingston, WA, as well as a bountiful vegetable garden. Her interest in the environment lead to her being active with local environmental groups in Kingston.

Rosemary was very creative and learned to make personalized greeting cards on her computer to send to her many friends and relatives. She became an enthusiastic golfer and competed in women’s golf tournaments at the Gold Mountain Golf Club in Bremerton. She was an active member of the Gold Mountain Ladies Golf Club and served for a time as an officer of the club.

Rosemary suffered a severe stroke that nearly took her life in 2011. She fought back and over time she was able to gain some mobility. She and Bob moved to Henderson, N.V. in 2012 to enjoy a milder climate and to stay near their daughter Cindy and her sons.

Rosemary was predeceased by her parents Helen and Anthony Puz and her brother Thomas Michael Puz. She is survived by her beloved husband of 58 years, Bob, and by Debbie Hogan and her fiancé Brad Fowler, Cindy Lowman, Jeff Lowman and his wife Mayada, four grandchildren, Ryan and Rachel Hogan and Robbie and Jacob Lowman, her siblings JoAnn Saucedo, Madeline Bost and Donald Puz, her sister-in-law Pat Sigvartson and her husband Roy, thirteen cousins and countless nieces and nephews.
