Pedrick Stall Lowrey

Just walk through Falls Park and you’ll be amazed by how many people you’ll see any time of the year.  Much of the credit for that goes to Pedrick Lowrey.  She is one of the people who had the vision and the skill to make Falls Park a prime attraction for the people of Greenville.  Tom Keith, the landscape architect for the project, credits her with having the knowledge of plants and passion for the project that made it a success.  To preserve and enhance Falls Park in the future, Pedrick and Anna Kate Hipp co-chaired the board that raised over $3 million for the Falls Park Endowment Fund. 

Pedrick also served many other organizations in leadership roles including the Carolina Foothills Garden Club, Roper Mountain Science Center, Peace Center for the Performing Arts, Trees Greenville, and Cancer Society of Greenville.

As a long-time supporter of the Community Foundation, Pedrick joined the Board in 2000 and served as Secretary of the Board from 2002-2010.  She was a volunteer member of the Grants Review Committee for eleven years, serving as chair three times.   Bob Morris said, “We all valued her sound judgment, caring spirit and constant efforts to make our community a better and more beautiful place.”

Pedrick died on December 21, 2010, after a seven-year battle with cancer. Pedrick's Garden Fund has been established by her family at the Community Foundation to receive memorials and will be used to plant a public garden in Greenville.
