Lowell was born April 4, 1935 in Lancaster County, PA to Harry and Amanda (Boyer) Seiverling. Lowell is survived by his wife, Annabelle (Krall); a brother, H.

He also had four great-grandchildren, Makenna Haas and Everett, Oliver, and Verena Moyer and several nieces and nephews. He was preceded in death by an infant son and a great-granddaughter.
Lowell met his wife, Annabelle, when they were both teenagers at Schaefferstown High School. They have been together ever since. This June, they would have celebrated their 65th wedding anniversary. Lowell was the consummate inventor, salesman, man of the people, and never sat still. He was always building, tinkering, or coming up with his latest “project”. He could often be found outside in his yard or sitting on the swing with Annabelle waving at passersby.
Lowell was a hard worker. He started working odd jobs at a young age, worked at the Lancaster Steel Foundry as a teenager, and held various other jobs throughout his life. Lowell served in the United States Army during the Korean War near the DMZ. He was a proud Veteran and loved his country.
After returning from Korea, he drove an oil truck and school bus for Jacob Netzley Oil. He moved on to hauling concrete for A.G. Kurtz, Denver PA. Eventually, he became a salesman for Pennsy Supply and then vice president at Boger and Sons, Annville, PA. Lowell believed in participating in his community as an active member of the Schaefferstown Fire Company, serving as its fire chief, building committee member for the Schaefferstown Fire Hall, Carnival Committee, and as a trustee. He was a founding organizer of the Schaefferstown Fire Company Antique Tractor Show and Pull. He was an active member of St. Paul’s UCC in Schaefferstown and the Grundsau Lodsch #17. In his later years, he helped manage the Schaefferstown Cemetery Association.
He will be loved and missed by his family, and dear friends. Burial will be private. A memorial service will be planned for a later date. Clauser Funeral Home, Inc. is handling his arrangements. www.clauserfh.com

I can remember one time when I first met Mr. Seiverling ( Lowell ) as a young kid new in town. A bunch of us kids were sitting around the playground at the elementary school. Back then there were swings back there and they were the real big swings with the long chains. Well anyways, we were messing around and I think it was Roger, he was throwing the swings around getting them tangled up and making a whole bunch of noise. It was a common thing to do. All of the sudden I see this big man walking towards us and he looked upset. A couple of us were just sitting there on the see saws and Roger was still messing with the swings. Lowell, comes back and in a very low voice, but stern say Roger what are you trying to do? By the time he started his second sentence, I got up and I ran out front of the school and hid in the bushes. I was scared Lowell was going to give us all hell. I stayed in the bushes until he was done kinda yelling at Roger but the way he was yelling in a kind way I thought. Because he sure didn't yell like my Pop yelled at me. I came out and came back to the monkey bars and was waiting for Lowell to give me hell but he didn't. He looked over my way and ask me who I was. I told him my name and he laughed at my last name and jokingly said it again that made me laugh. After everything was good. Lowell walked back to his car. I can remember how kind he came across to me. In the beginning of all this I was scared of Lowell but that 10 minute encounter I thought how kind and gentle this man is. I was around 11 years old and to this day I always thought that way of him and I always liked Lowell after that. I'm not sure what he thought about me but, God bless Lowell. The end of town isn't going to be the same with Lowell not being there, usually putzin around or sitting with his beautiful wife Annebell. As we grow older you don't see couples like Lowell and Annebell. Perfect for each other. Pure soulmates... God bless Lowell Lord,, and give Annebell peace
