Lowell Steven Severson, 71, of Fort Atkinson passed away on Thursday, November 9, 2023 at Sienna Crest in Fort Atkinson.
Lowell was born on November 12, 1951 in Fort Atkinson to Leonard and Vera (Raether) Severson. He grew up on his family farm and had spent his life farming. Farming was his hobby and his work. Lowell graduated from Cambridge High School in 1969 and right after graduating, he completed the farming Short Course at UW-Madison. He met Judy Oshel in 1970 and later married at East Koshkonong Church on November 10, 1973. Together they had three children.
His true passion was farming and believed his job was to leave the land better than when he received it. Lowell also enjoyed tinkering with his Farmall 300 tractor. In his later years, he enjoyed riding his golf cart, throughout the farmland. Above all, he enjoyed spending time with his family.
Lowell is survived by his wife, Judy Severson; children, Jennifer (Jason) Moresco, Jake Severson; grandchildren, Carissa Moresco, Libby Moresco; sisters, Carolyn Putz, Gloria (Gary)Fruit; brothers-in-law, Buddy Oshel, Jim (Rhonda) Oshel; many nieces and nephews.
He is preceded in death by his parents, Leonard and Vera Severson; and son, Lenny Severson.
Private graveside services are being held at East Koshkonong Lutheran Cemetery.
The family would like to give special thanks to Sienna Crest and Rainbow Hospice staff for their exceptional care for Lowell.
Donations can be made in Lowell’s name to Rainbow Hospice Care in Jefferson.
