Obituary for Myrtle Mae Powell

Myrtle Mae Eckel Powell age 93 passed away May 30th 2020 at her granddaughter's home in Saranac Michigan.
Born October 15th 1926 to Gus and Mary Esther Eckel. Myrtle was married to Jesse Elmo Powell and they raised six children together. Marcia Powell Weldon, Connie Powell Vamos, Randy Powell, Gregory Powell, Ricky Powell and Susan Powell Darling.
Myrtle was number 7 of 10 siblings. Florence Gingell, Dorothea Gilbert, Melvin Eckel, Doris Sommer, Ester Graves, Ross Eckel and James Eckel.
Myrtle was a superb athlete and a girl's basketball coach. She was a woman of many hats and it didn't stop there. She went through life with a "I Did It My Way" attitude. She was a sharp dresser and a proud beautiful woman. Myrtle was brave and bold and not afraid of anything. She had a wonderful happy laugh with sparkling blue eyes. Myrtle loved being with her family, she loved knitting, crocheting and reading. She loved each and everyone of her children, grandchildren. She was one in a million.
I would like to extend a special thank you to Heartland Hospice, Kim Brennan and Pastor Drew Jolly the officiant. Private Graveside Service was held Thursday June 4th 2020 at Mt. Pleasant Cemetery in Oxford.
