Logan Lowery Obituary, Death – Logan was an active and enthusiastic member of the band community at Shawnee Mission East High School, where she received her diploma in May. Throughout her more than four-year battle with illness, Logan was a great inspiration to everyone she came into contact with.
Logan, who was taken from us way too young, loved life to the fullest. When she was diagnosed with osteosarcoma, she was just 18 years old, but in the four years that followed, she went through more incredible experiences and had a bigger positive impact on more people’s lives than the typical person does in their whole lifetime. Even at such a young age, her expertise and knowledge were clear.
Logan’s infectious smile radiated light into every area, enabling her to form close bonds with both people and animals. She participated in the jazz, symphonic, and marching bands at Shawnee Mission East and volunteered at Wayside Waifs and Camp Quality Northwest Missouri. She was devoted to her loved ones, friends, and caregivers. She had a great deal of passion for everything she did.
She was obsessed with learning everything there was to know about this world and the one after. In whatever manner, this attractive and courageous young woman was unstoppable. I was astounded by how kind she was in the midst of impossibly difficult challenges. Although she did not seek praise or attention for her work, many people were moved by this warrior’s bravery and fortitude.
Logan is survived by her mother Gina, brother Garrett, and dog Eva at their Prairie Village, Kansas, residence; by her brother Joe (Josiah) Lowrey and wife MaKenzie Lowrey at their St. Joseph, Missouri, residence; and by her sister Brie Lowrey at her St. Louis, Missouri, residence. Her mother Suzi Lowrey, her grandparents Kay and Howard Dale Lowrey of Chillicothe, Missouri, and Suzi and Larry Glaus of Benton, Missouri, were all present when she passed away. Her Prairie Village-based father Ricklin Lowrey also went away prior to her.
