Dr. Jill Lowther

It is with deep sorrow that we announce the passing of Jill Lowther, aged 35, due to complications from breast cancer. She departed this world surrounded by love on April 22, 2024, leaving behind a legacy of warmth, courage, and unwavering kindness. Born in Chatham, Ontario, to parents Mike and Sue Lowther (Schamahorn), Jill grew up as the middle child with her sisters Amy (Gouda) Clark and Laura (Chad) Wheeler. Jill’s academic journey led her from the halls of the University of Western Ontario to the University of Memphis, where she earned her Doctorate of Audiology. Her passion for helping others hear the world more clearly defined her career and enriched the lives of many. In 2015, Jill moved to Atlanta, Georgia, to live with her sister Amy and her family. During this time, she formed an unbreakable bond with her nephews, Jack, Francis, and Freddie, who became the light of her life. Her role as a loving aunt was one she embraced wholeheartedly and with joy. Jill’s love story began on a bike ride in 2019, where she met Tony Huinker, the love of her life. Their shared passion for cycling and the outdoors brought them together in a serendipitous spin of fate, leading to their marriage in 2023. Together, they navigated the challenges and joys of life, fortified by love and mutual respect. As an avid cyclist, this passion connected her with a vibrant community of fellow cyclists in Atlanta, many of whom became her close friends and confidants. Beyond cycling, she nurtured a garden that was as vibrant and lively as she was, filled with plants that thrived under her careful attention. Jill’s memory will be cherished and kept alive by her loving husband, Tony; her parents, Mike and Sue; sisters, Amy and Laura; her adoring nephews, Jack, Francis, and Freddie; grandparents, Garth and Marlene, and a community of friends who were like family. A celebration of Jill’s life will be held in Atlanta, Georgia on June 8th, with an additional celebration in Chatham, Ontario on June 30. Please reach out to family for more details if you wish to join either of these celebrations. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to Atlanta Cancer Care Foundation, Three Seed Collective, Grady Memorial Hospital, or the Rotary Club of Chatham “EcoTrail” at O’Neill’s Nature Preserve. Her spirit, love, and laughter will be deeply missed by all who knew her. On-line condolences may be shared at http://www.alexanderandhoulefuneralhome.ca
