Ann (Herman) Lowenkron, PhD, MSN, BSN

July 20, 1942 ~ March 26, 2022 (age 79)


Dr. Ann H. Lowenkron, 79, award-winning nurse educator and beloved wife, mother and grandmother died peacefully surrounded by her husband and daughters Saturday, March 26, 2022.


A New Yorker born and bred; Ann graduated from Taft High School in the Bronx winning a New York State Regent’s Scholarship for college.  She graduated from Alfred University’s baccalaureate program in nursing in 1964 and completed a Master of Science in Nursing from Columbia University.  Years later she earned a PhD from Indiana University’s School of Nursing while teaching full-time and raising her family.


Ann was admitted into membership of the International Honors Society in Nursing, Sigma Theta Tau, and was a Founding Faculty member at IUPUI’s University College, a program that helps develop successful first-year college learners.  She was awarded “Outstanding Teacher of the Year” multiple times by her IU baccalaureate graduates, truly a reflection of the student support and advocacy that was her hallmark.

Ann and her husband moved to Indianapolis in 1977.  She is a long-time member of Indianapolis Hebrew Congregation, its Sisterhood, and B’nai B’rith.  She was an avid Colts fan who never missed watching a game and enjoyed Mah Jong and reading.  But most of all, Ann loved her family.

She is survived by her husband of 51 years, Henry "Hank" Lowenkron; daughters, Rosemary Lowenkron Borek and Tara Lowenkron Kamm (Justin); and grandchildren, Megan Kamm, Amanda Borek, Zachary Kamm, Sara Borek and Kayleigh Borek. She was predeceased by her parents, Reuben and Sara Herman; and her brother, William (Billy) Herman.
