The pallbearers will be James Eaton, Hiram Lewis, Tom Torrington, Roger Hurd, Edward Keck, Albert Comley, Earl Hilbert, John B. Carey and Ralph Rounds. Honorary pallbearers are: Miss Pauline Naftzger, Miss Carolyn Clapp, Miss Marie Babcook, Miss Christine Ross, Miss Margaret Long, Mrs. Albert Comley, Mrs. Earl Hilbert and Mrs. Hiram Lewis.
One of the interesting side-lights of Miss Powell’s last days was her intense activity in behalf of various worthy causes.
She gave two days of her time to the Roosevelt memorial fund drive, working at the National Bank of Commerce, and she expressed great enthusiasm for the work to the committee. She expressed deep regret at the attitude of some of those who were reminded of the drive and told the committee she was very happy to have had a part in the work.
