Irene Virginia Jeffers Lowery, 91, passed away peacefully at home on September 1, 2021, surrounded by her loving family. 

Irene was born on October 1, 1929 in Baltimore, MD, daughter to the late Joel W. And Hazel V. (Anderson) Jeffers. 

She was raised and educated in Baltimore. Irene worked for many years as a gift wrapper, and she wrapped such beautiful gifts, no one wanted to open them.   She was a member of the Salem Baptist Church in Maryland.  She enjoyed watching Western shows, traveling, and her favorite teams the Orioles, Ravens and the Brooklyn Dodgers. But most of all, she loved being a grandma “Ginny.” 

Irene is survived by her children Rhonda F. Lowery-Crosby and her husband Frank Crosby Jr., Sharon Lowery Thomas, and her daughter in law Harriette Lowery.  She was the cherished “Ginny’ to Kimberly, Bomani, Damani, Ayanna, and Kelly.  She was the great “Ginny” to Kristen, Tania, Kenny, Justin, Damani Jr., Kyle, Brendan, Kristopher, Sage, Jessica, Cameron, Isiah, and Trinity, and great-great “Ginny” to Kori, Kameron, and Khruz.  Irene was predeceased by her son Eric Madison Lowery. 

The family will receive friends for a memorial celebration on Thursday, November 18, 2021, from 6:00 - 9:00 PM at Liriodendron Mansion, 502 W. Gordon St, Bel Air, MD 21014
