Our History

About Us Slider

The Lowther family has been in the funeral service industry for three generations. Our family history began in Indian River County in the 1950’s. Joseph D. Lowther, Sr., Thomas' father, worked in the funeral industry locally and went on to own and operate funeral homes in the Ormond Beach and Holly Hill, Florida, area.

Lowther Cremation Service, Inc., located at 1555 27th St., Vero Beach, FL 32960 opened for business in August 1997 as Indian River County’s first crematory and Vero's only onsite crematory, owned and operated by the Lowther family.

In 2001, we expanded to include our full service funeral home on the adjoining property. Thomas S. Lowther Funeral Home & Crematory, located at 1655 27th St., Vero Beach, FL 32960, providing full service funeral options. We are proud to serve Indian River County residents both locally and throughout the United States.

In 2006, our daughter, Kari R. Lowther was a welcome addition to our family business. Funeral Directors, our son, Ryan S. Lowther and Saranne Sisk, joined our staff in 2013, with Saranne becoming Saranne S. Lowther, Ryan’s wife, our daughter-in-law, in August 2014.
