Martha Lowe Killian

Martha Lowe Killian, daughter of Herschel and Ruth Lowe, was born and raised in Calvin Louisiana, Martha passed away 10th January 2021 aged 82 in her hometown of Alexandria. Survived by brother Milam, sisters Mary Ann and Melinda. Martha was a graduate of Calvin High School and Northwestern University, where she earned a degree in education. As a teacher she worked in parishes around north Louisiana. Martha understood the worth of every student that crossed her path, education, a life passion projected into her great grandchildren.

Beside her brother and sisters, Martha is survived by her children Denese and husband Allen; Robbie and wife Kelly; and Renee and fiancé Tony; five grandchildren, eleven great grandchildren, three great-great grandchildren and many nieces and nephews.

Martha was noted for touching the lives of all those she encountered. With her crystal blue eyes and warm smile, she captured the hearts of those around her; her kindness was visible to all she met.

Martha also had a flair for wearing colorful hats. This became a calling, the Lord spoke to her, freeing her from shyness, not only did it bolster her confidence but also afforded her the opportunity to share the love of Jesus with others and to hug every Veteran that crossed her path; and there were many!

Martha cared for her family and friends selflessly, putting those less fortunate, and often those more fortunate, before her needs and prosperity; this gave her one of the greatest joy’s in life. Family was very dear to her, she enjoyed building memories, sharing stories from the past, winning at cards, playing the piano and having singalongs, and loving on her dog Bruno.

Martha served the Lord by spreading the word of Jesus, she played piano and sang in church. Her daily routine began with reading God’s word, praying for many by name, and ending her day in His word again. Jesus was her Savior and her best friend.

She will be missed deeply by her family and friends; she stamped our lives with a unique kindness and selflessness that only Martha could make.

Our Mother made this world a better place!
