Virginia Lee Lowery, age 80, of Clever, Missouri, passed peacefully into the arms of Jesus on April 8, 2024. Jenny, as she was more commonly known, was born to Guy and Irene (Branson) Rogers on June 17, 1943, in the small community of Bois D’Arc, Missouri. She grew up in Springfield and attended Central High School. In 1962, at the age of 19, Jenny was united in marriage to George Lowery. Jenny was blessed with two loving stepchildren, Rhonda and Ramey.

Shortly after her marriage to George, Jenny started working at the Kitty Clover Potato Chips plant in Springfield. After working there for several years, she left Kitty Clover to start a new career at Southern Missouri Containers, also located in Springfield. Jenny’s 27 years with SMC were among her most rewarding years of employment. She took great pride in helping her coworkers produce some of the best corrugated products in the nation. Jenny’s hard work and dedication contributed to her success as a production worker and, later in her career, an indispensable office assistant. In 2015, Jenny retired from SMC in order to relax and spend more time with family and friends.

Jenny was preceded in death by her parents, Guy and Irene Rogers; husband, George; brothers, Donald Goddard, Max Goddard, Leon Goddard, Jim Rogers, and Bill Rogers; sisters, Mary Barker, Jennel Robberson, Anna May Beach, and Betty Nelson. She is survived by her two stepchildren, Rhonda Starks and Ramey Lowery; brother, Lee Rogers; sister, Irida McCafferty; sister-in-law, Ina Goddard; 6 grandchildren; 29 great-grandchildren; 33 great-great grandchildren; and a host of nieces, nephews, extended family, and friends whom she loved with all her heart.
