CHRISTINE HART LOWE died March 15 after an extended illness. Born April 15, 1951, in Quincy, MA. Christine was educated at Towson University in Baltimore, MD. It was in Baltimore where she began her long and distinguished career as a teacher. Christine taught physical education at various schools in Maryland before relocating to Raleigh, NC in 1994. She renewed her enthusiasm for teaching at Ravenscroft School in north Raleigh, and taught there until her death. Christine is remembered for her passion for education, her dedication to her students, and her love for the Ravenscroft community. She was well known for her message to her students that "you can do anything you want to in life if you try hard enough." She was a great and loving friend and a person who was always thinking of others first. She brought energy, enthusiasm and happiness to everything and everyone she touched. She was also a dedicated and wonderful mother and wife, who made every effort to ensure her family was loved and cared for. Her three daughters were very fortunate to have her as their role model and their guide to adulthood. Surviving are her husband of 28 years, John Lowe, and her three wonderful daughters, Annie, of Wilmington, and Kaitlin and Caroline, of Raleigh, as well as her mother, Dorothy Hart, brother Richard Hart and sister Patricia Haslett, all of Massachusetts.
