After Lowell graduated from Spiceland High School in 1936, he went to work at Spiceland Grain and Coal until it was acquired by Henry County Farm Bureau, where he then became the Spiceland Branch Manager. Lowell was an honorable man, and the farmers knew that. He conducted business for many years with a handshake, and would have “settlement” day, when the farmers would all settle up after selling their crops. Farmers from neighboring towns would choose to conduct business with Lowell, even when it meant driving further. When the Spiceland Elevator closed, he became the County Farm Bureau Oil Manager, from which he retired in the late 1970s.

He enjoyed working at Spiceland Freedom Days for many years, and was extremely active in the Club for many years. He was a life-long member, and the longest living member of Spiceland Friends Meeting where he had served in several capacities, including Sunday School teacher, Ministry and Oversight Committee, and the church choir. He was a member of the Spiceland Alumni Association, and enjoyed acting in the skits for their annual program.
A life-long horseman, Lowell enjoyed restoring his grandfathers sleigh and buggy, and he loved hitching them up for rides. He was a woodworker and a collector.
He married his high school sweetheart, Eileen Stubbs on December 24, 1941. They enjoyed 40 years of marriage until she passed away in 1981. He then married Marguerite Clark Green in 1985, and she passed away in August, 2015, just short of their 30th wedding anniversary.
He leaves to cherish his memory, a son, John (Cindy) Painter of Ft. Wayne, a daughter, Janet (Darrell) Craft of Spiceland; four grandchildren, Jonathon (Julie) Painter of Ft. Wayne, Lindsay (Thomas) Marcinko of Fishers, Mike (Jenny) Craft, and Patrick (Stacey) Craft, both of Spiceland; ten great grandchildren, Macy and Lauren Painter, Ashley and Tyler Marcinko, Wesley, Taylor, Chandler, Ross, Ryan and Trace Craft.

Walter R Heaston
Cambridge City, IN - Walter R Heaston, age 80, passed away on December 22, 2015 in North Little Rock, Arkansas with his daughter by his side. He was born on August 24, 1935 to Raymond Heaston Sr. and Ida Loretta (Favorite) Heaston in Jacksonburg, Indiana. His wife Mary Lou (Shaw) Heaston preceded him in death, they were married on November 18, 1967.
He is survived by 8 children, 4 siblings, many grandchildren, great-grandchildren, nieces and nephews. His mother, father, 2 children, and 7 siblings preceded him in death.
Walter lived his life pursuing what he saw as the American dream. His patriotism drove him to serve in the Indiana National Guard from 1953-1958. He provided for his 10 children with the prideful, arduous occupation as a welder for over 50 years. He enjoyed family, hunting, fishing, NASCAR racing, Indianapolis Colts football, tinkering on anything with an engine, and his dog/s.
His unique, witty humor and intellect throughout the years served as a focal point of amusement for his many grandchildren, nieces and nephews; providing a smile for anyone in need, including strangers! He probably still owes most of his grandchildren money for all the times they combed his hair for a quarter!
In closing, he would want to give one more smile and anyone who knows him will know the answer to this question: Do you think it will work??!!
Family and friends may gather from 4:00 – 8:00 p.m. on Monday, December 28, 2015 at Marshall & Erlewein Funeral Home, Dublin.
