Our sympathy to the Powlas family. What a wonderful family & we lived on Wilson Ave. Just a few houses away from where she grew up. The Allen & Powlas Family were wonderful neighbors! God bless and strengthen the family during this difficult time! Tedd & Gail Smith

Bill and Tom, so sorry to see your mom has passed away. I have great memories of spending time with you and having a great time playing on your place in Swananoa. Uncle Jim and Aunt Inez were always so helpful to us after Daddy died in 1961. She had a long and fruitful life. Our prayers are with you and your families during this time. God bless you all. Cliff and Cathy Piercy.
