Cloie Wayne Lowrance was gently escorted from this broken body and life on earth to be birthed into Heaven on January 13, 2021.
Wayne, as everyone called him, was born on April 28, 1951 at his family's home place in Elba, AR. Attending his birth was Lucille Sitton who arrived in Heaven just days before he did. She loved to always remind him when he visited with her at Ozark Nursing and Rehab, that she was the first person to spank his bottom. He was the last of the 10 children born to his late parents, Thomas and Bessie Lowrance, and was loved and brought up in the admonition of the Lord, at home and at his family's home church, Plant Baptist Church. Wayne attended Clinton Public Schools and graduated in 1970. He went to the Vo-Tech in Morrilton, Arkansas where he was studying Heating and Air Conditioning until he badly injured his back. Wayne met the sister of Judy, who was to be the first great love of his life, Betty Faye Blackwood. Judy introduced them and sparks flew. Wayne says that it was love at first sight. They married and several years later Clayton Wayne Lowrance added joy to their family and several years after that their family was completed with David Paul Lowrance. This family was not wealthy by the world standards but so rich in love. They built their home on Hwy. 110 themselves with the help of family and friends. Wayne was so happy to be gardening, mowing, watching birds, and hunting at his home and family land and he enjoyed singing at he many Gospel Singings in the 3 surrounding counties and was extremely gifted in this.
Wayne worked many hard jobs in his life and it took it's toll on his joints, but he never allowed it to stop him from his job or his joy. Uncle Cloie, who Cloie Wayne was named for, was the first Fire Chief in Harrison, AR. Wayne's father was the first to donate to build the 110 Volunteer Fire Department. The family's love for their neighbors' well being was exhibited in their risking their lives to save other's lives and property, Wayne having actively served for over 35 years as a Firefighter and it was still a great love of his. He was no longer able to carry hoses or fight fires at night due to poor vision which caused him to not answer calls in the past 3 years, but he always told the Chief that if they needed a tanker or brush truck driver, he would go. His legacy is being carried out in his sons today, Clayton who is a first responder and David who is 2nd in command in the 110 VFD and in his Daughter in Love, Nancy Lowrance who is a first responder, wife of David.
After the death of Betty from 3 bouts of Breast Cancer, Wayne felt 4 years later that God would bring him another wife to give the love he knew was still in his heart to share with another. Wayne met Patti Scheefers, a widow of her first great love, Joe Scheefers, on Christian Mingle and after talking for a month, they had their first date at Western Sizzlin, and it was love at first sight for them both. They dated 3 months and Wayne proposed in front of all his Lowrance Family at the annual family reunion and they married 3 weeks later. They spent their honeymoon at Wayne's first wife's sister's home where a great friendship began. The Blackwoods all welcomed Patti as a family member.
Wayne is preceded in death by his parents, Thomas and Bessie Lowrance, Brothers, Jessie and William "Bill", Sisters, Geneva Black and Irma Webb, and First wife, Betty Blackwood Lowrance. He is survived by Brother, James "Jim " Lowrance (Jan), Sisters, Loretta Alexander, Ruby Black, Marge Colfax, Berniece Isaac, Sons, Clayton Lowrance, David Lowrance (Nancy), Sisters in Laws, Judith Bolen (Afton) and Dianne Holliman (Darin), Wife, Pattti Lowrane, In law, Buster Westmoreland, Brother in law, Steven Westmoreland (Sherry), Stepdaughter, Carrie Lee (Anthony), Stepson, Paul Scheefers (Michelle), 8 Grandchildren, and a host of the most loving and amazing nieces, nephews, cousins, and friends that are as numerous as the sand on the shore.
The family wishes to thank each of you for the prayers, running to bring us supplies and food during this time when we also had Covid.
As a family, we have decided to wait and hold a Memorial Service for Wayne when the numbers of active Covid cases go down drastically in our county and state. We do not wish for anyone else to be put at risk. Thank you all.

I am so sorry for the loss of Wayne. We both looked forward to the singings at the various churches and hated to have to stop them when this awful virus took over our county. I pray for strength and comfort form the Lord for all of the family.

Clayton and David, we are very sorry to hear about the loss of your dad. Your Aunt Berniece is our sister in law. I think the last time we visited with you boys, your dad and mom were still building on their new home in which they were very proud of. We saw Wayne several times during the past fifty two years but can't recall as much as we do the day we saw him at his new home. He was a wonderful guy to be around and we had lots of laughs with him. You all we be in our thoughts and prayers, not just now but in the days to follow. You have our deepest sympathy. Wayne will always be remembered for the kind and funny things he did down through the years. Our love to all. Sincerely, Dennis and Mary Isaac, Springdale, Arkansas
