Montaree Powell

August 17, 1931 — March 4, 2020

Rosman, NC

Montaree (Powell) Powell, 88, of Rosman, passed away on Wednesday, March 4, 2020. A Transylvania County native, she was the daughter of the late Marion C. and Callie Aiken Powell. In addition to her parents, she was also preceded in death by her brother, Robert T. Powell, and her sister, Geneva “Jack” Holcomb.

Mrs. Powell loved to tend her garden and enjoyed canning, and she made many beautiful quilts. But nothing compared to the love she had for her Lord. She could often be found at home reading her Bible and praying.

She is survived by her son, Rev. Berlis Powell and his wife, Pam, of Rosman; and her grandson David; and a number of nieces and nephews.
