More than just a homemaker, she was an excellent and caring wife, a wonderful mother, supportive grandmother and an even greater great-grandmother. She was the foundation of the family and the rock on which the family was built. The advice she gave came from her Christian faith. She was a woman with no enemies and a heart made of gold who will be missed for her laughter, sense of humor, and the love she shared to everyone she knew.
She leaves to cherish her memory her husband of 53 years, Obadiah, her four children, her aunt, grandchildern, great grandchildren, a host of other family members and friends.

A TRIBUTE TO OUR GRANDMOTHER, Mother Lillie Mae Young Powell
Sunrise:June 30, 1925 – Sunset:August 28, 2007
“Who can find a virtuous woman? For her price is far above rubies.
The heart of her husband doth safely trust in her, so that he shall have no need of spoil.
She will do him good and not evil all the days of her life….
Her children arise up, and call her blessed; her husband also, and he praiseth her.
Many daughters have done virtuously, but thou excellest them all.
Favour is deceitful, and beauty is vain:but a woman that feareth the Lord, she shall be praised.
Give her of the fruit of her hands; and let her own works praise her in the gates.”Proverbs 31
To our Grandmother, A virtuous woman indeed!
We love you and we thank you for our spiritual upbringing and for teaching us to trust God in ALL things.May you rest in peace is our prayer!
Forever in our hearts,
Master, who are you running to meet What has happened you bid us all come? The master catching his breath and smiling at me "Haven't you heard Lillie Mae's coming home!"
