Mrs. Bessie Florence Powell October 18, 1915 - November 4, 2008 - POWELL, Bessie Florence Slipped away gently to be with her husband of 66 years, Lloyd, on Tuesday, November 4, 2008, in Ocean View Manor, Eastern Passage. Born in Grand Bank, N.L., she was the only daughter of Angus and Miriam Brown. She will be missed by her sons, Angus Powell (Linda Sarty) of Dartmouth, and Alvin Powell (Sue Inkpen) of Lethbridge, N.L., and her daughter, Suzanne Snow (John Furey) of Chilliwack, B.C., as well as eight grandchildren and four great-grandchildren. She was predeceased by her husband, Lloyd; son, Graham "Duke" Powell, and brothers, Jimmy and Onslow Brown. She was an excellent homemaker and for many years boarded students from outlying communities who came to St. John's to attend the Trade School. In 1978, she and her husband, Lloyd, moved to Nova Scotia and settled in Cole Harbour. She attended St. James United Church, Portland Street, Dartmouth, until poor health made it too difficult to attend services there. Bessie loved to knit and got a lot of enjoyment from her pets. She had an eye for quality and always surrounded herself with nice things. She enjoyed music and was especially thrilled with the hymns played by The Salvation Army Band. In recent years, she resided at Ocean View Manor where she received tender loving care by the staff of Unit A. A celebration of Bessie's life will take place in Atlantic Funeral Home, 771 Main St., Dartmouth, on Monday, November 10, at 3 p.m. with Rev. Dr. Peter Sherwood officiating. There will be a reception following the service. Memorial donations in Bessie's memory can be made to Ocean View Manor Society or the charity of your choice.
