A California mother of four who was “proudly” anti-vaccine, particularly against the COVID-19 vaccine, has died from complications due to the coronavirus.
Proudly anti-vaccine mother of four dies from COVID
Kristen Lowery, 40, was a social media figure who proclaimed her anti-mask and anti-vaccine views and garnered high praise.
She died Sept. 15, her aunt said, according to Yahoo News.
“She will be forever missed,” her aunt wrote. “So many people need her here, but God must have special plans for her in heaven. You are dearly loved Kristen.
And you will be missed very, very much.”
Lowery’s sister Cassie wrote on Facebook before her death that she was “fighting for her life against COVID and pneumonia.”
“My sister has a long life left,” Cassie wrote in a now-deleted post.
“We need you here, sissy. Your kids love you and kiss you so much. Please don’t give up,” she continued.
Since her death, Lowery’s Facebook account, which has a profile picture of her with the caption “Unmasked, unmuzzled, unafraid.
Together we win” has been made private.
In an image captured from her profile since made private that was posted on Reddit, Lowery can be seen holding a sign that read, “Give a voice to those hurt by vaccines.”
In a GoFundMe that hopes to raise money for her final expenses, Lowery is described as a “beautiful and amazing woman, but more than that she was a phenomenal mother who always, ALWAYS put her children first.”
“She lived for her children (Tayden, McKenna, Ella and Ryenn) and loved being their mother more than anything else in her life,” the fundraising release continues.
“She was full of life and fiercely loved her friends and family.”
