Edna Deetz Lowden
August 21, 1923 – July 25, 2018

Edna Deetz Lowden, born August 21, 1923 in Bethlehem, PA, passed peacefully July 25, 2018 in Port Orange, FL with her three sons and daughter at her side. She was the wife of 56 years to the late C. Dudley Lowden, Jr., a trombonist. Edna, a graduate of Germantown High School, was a member of Alpha Pi Theta Sorority, where she made lifelong friendships. During WWII, she was one of the first female inspectors of flight instruments for Bendix Corp. Edna was raised in Philadelphia and was a city girl at heart with a great zest for life, her family and friends, travel, books and walks on the Ocean City beach. She is survived by four children: Chuck, his wife Sharon and their children Mavis and Colton of Ventnor, NJ; Scott, his wife Sue and their children Chay (Jen) and their son Josh, Holly (Josh) from Orange Park, FL; Nancy, her husband Andrew and their children Tyler (Chrissy) and Destiny from Port Orange, FL; and Dan, his wife Melina, and their children Finn and Keira from Summit, NJ.  The family was blessed to have Velvet Postell Austell as caregiver and friend through her final three+ years. A gathering to celebrate life will be held Wednesday, August 15 (10 AM visitation with family, 11 AM service) St. Peter’s United Methodist Church, 501 E. 8th Street, Ocean City, NJ.

    I have so much love and admiration for Mrs. Lowden. She will always be in my heart. I have so many fond memories of growing up in Cherry Hill and of Surrey Place.She was a dear friend of my mother Lois and lived next door to my grandparents, Grace and Bob. When Mr. And Mrs., moved to O.C., the fun never stopped. She was always kind to us and always had a loving heart. We could talk about anything. “Kiddo” was what she loved calling me. I already miss her infectious laughter.

    Truly one of the nicest people I have ever met. I still miss the expression "kiddo". She raised a very nice family and will be missed but remembered.
    Sorry I will not be able to attend the services. Having some problems lately that make it difficult to travel.
