Hannah J. Lowe NOVEMBER 27, 1919 TO MARCH 30, 2013 Mom was born and raised in Woodbine, New Jersey. Her parents, Nicholas and Genevieve Ciabatoni, immigrated from Italy. Mom worked in the banking industry for 36 years. Her job was her life and her fulfillment. She loved her co-workers and customers, and they loved her. She retired when she was 79, but returned to work at 81. After retiring for good, she volunteered at Torrance Memorial Hospital. She helped in the gift shop, and later in the records department. Mom was their oldest volunteer, ever. She resided at Ocean Gate Vista, in Redondo Beach, for many years. Her neighbors and friends treated her like family. Their love and caring support allowed her to remain independent until her passing, at 93 years of age. This was her greatest wish. Mom lost her only son, Nick, two years ago. She missed him terribly. Now they are together at last. My daughter, Lisa, and I were unable to be here for Mom these last two years, as Lisa's son was battling Ewings Sarcoma. He, also, is with his great grandma now. We want you to know that when we see an elderly person struggling in the store, or needing a hand crossing the street, we will think of you and how you all were there in our absence. This is truly God's love and you are his grace. Preceded in death by husband, Billy Lowe; son, Nick Lowe and great-grandson Nicholas A. Lowe. Survived by daughter Barbara; daughter-in-law Sher; grandchildren, Lisa, Gino, Allison and Elise; great grandchildren, Trevor, Cody, Marny, Gino Jr., and Andrew. Service will be Scattering at Sea on April 13th, 2013 at 10am. Please call Barb for more information. An open house style memorial will follow from 2:00-8:00pm at Hannah's home. Please stop by for food and to share memories with family and friends. Bring a coat if you wish to participate in a balloon release on the beach at sunset. Hannah's address is Ocean Gate Vista, 1110 S. Catalina Ave. Apt.#202, Redondo Beach, CA 90027.

  1. Hannah was truly one of a kind. She was loved by and will be missed by many. What an honor it was to be her daughter-in-law for 38 years. Hannah, I know Nick and Nickolas were there to greet you with a big hug in heaven.

  3. Hammah you will be missed. I feel very fortunate to have known you. We always enjoyed each time we got to be together. May you rest in peace.
    To Hannah’s family, so very sorry for your loss.

  4. I admired Hanna from the first day I met her at the bank over 25 years ago. She had such energy & enthusiasm for life & for her job. She loved her customers, employees and even her bosses. When I saw her the last time a few months ago at a luncheon, though very frail, she told me how she would still love to go back to work. We will all miss her and I send my sincere condolences to her family. May she now truly rest in peace .

  5. I will miss my aunt Hannah greatly. She was avrey kind and gentle soul. She was always so concrened about me and my son, Samuel, when we spoke. She rarely wanted to speak about herself and how she was feelings. She always offered works of support and encouragement, Her selfless nature is why she was so loved and respect among her nieces and nephews and her customers at the bank. Hannah had a lot of bumps in the road of life, but she rode them our with grace and grit and never expressed any self pity What a rare and exceptional quality. In her later years she wanted to remain independent and in the flow of life, which she managed to do virtually right up to the very end. Samuel and I will miss you. Thank you for being such a loving aunt and such strong and caring role model. I know you are now with the rest of the framily

    PS: Thank you to all Aunt hannah’s neighbors and friends from the bank who looked out for her as her health declined. the family is very appreciative to you all.

    Love,

    Karolynn and Samuel

  6. To Hannah’s dear family, our deepest sympathy from Mat & Elsa Silver. We are Hannah’s neighbors for over 25 years and have loved and respected her. We admired her independence and strength. Our grandson Mathew (6yrs) new her since he was a baby and whenever we were at Trader Joe’s he insisted we buy her flowers. She loved seeing him bring them to her. Rest in peace Hannah, we shall all miss you.

  7. Hannah,
    You have a great soul that we will miss dearly and have touched our hearts one way or another. I know you’re looking down on us with a great big smile! God bless you and your family!
    Love,
    Samedi

  9. TO THE FAMILY OF HANNAH,

    WE LIVED NEXT DOOR TO HANNAH

    FOR OVER A DOZEN YEARS, SHE WAS NOT ONLY THE BEST NEIGHBOR BUT A JOY TO SEE ON A (ALMOST) DAILY BASIS. IT HAS BEEN OUR HONOR TO BE A VERY SMALL PART OF HER LIFE IN HER LAST YEARS. SHE WAS AN INSPIRATION TO US ALL TO HAVE LIVED HER LIFE WITH GRACIOUSNESS AND A CARING HEART FOR HER FAMILY AND FRIENDS. SHE HAD AN ENORMOUS

    FORTITUDE THAT WAS BEYOND COMPARE. WE CAN ONLY WISH TO HAVE SUCH GRACE AND DIGNITY AT ANY AGE. WE WILL MISS YOU HANNAH. GOD BLESS YOU TO THE HEAVENS, YOU ARE AN ANGEL.

  10. Hannah was my good neighbor for 24 years. She had two words that will always remain in my mind – they were THANK YOU. In the elevator or on the walkways, in the garauge she always found a way to say thank you to each of us. As I remember Hannah I will always think of the many thank yous she gave me over the years. She was a great lady, a great friend, a great life.

  11. If I ever met a kind and gentle soul, one genuinely attentive to everyone she encountered, that wonderful human being was Hannah. I was fortunate to be of service to the building where Hannah resided- as I was her mailman. Heaven holds a very special place for people like our departed friend, I will miss her.
