Kilbryde Hospice Director, Joe Lowe

7 February, 2023

It is with great sadness that we share the news that one of our trustees, Joe Lowe, has died after a short illness.

Joe supported the Kilbryde Hospice appeal from its outset in 2001 and became a trustee in 2013. During his time with Kilbryde, he played a key role in the delivery of our 12-bed hospice building here in East Kilbride. Joe was a great advocate of all things Kilbryde. One of his greatest strengths was knowing the right people and having the persuasive skills to get them to help the hospice.

Joe was also well known and loved by all our staff across the hospice, and the fundraisers renamed him “JLo,” which always brought a smile to his face knowing he was part of the team. Joe was always on hand to help raise funds. He could always raise a smile with his comical antics, particularly at the Eddlewood Bowling Club with our photograph showing Joe with his infectious smile.

Joe made a massive contribution to our work at Kilbryde over his time as a trustee. He understood very clearly why our care matters and brought great compassion to his role. He was a real champion for our work, and his memory will always remain at the heart of the hospice.
