Betty was preceded in death by her husband, James E. Powell, as well as other family and friends, who now welcome her into the gates of heaven.

An intimate memorial dinner will be held in honor of Betty’s life amongst her aforementioned surviving family members.

May she live on forever in the hearts and minds of those who knew her, and may she rest easy, full of love and light.
