❤️ IN LOVING MEMORY ... I'll miss you mom ❤️ Kathleen A Powell March 9, 1937 – January 19, 2024 My Mom, Kathy Powell passed away on January 19 at the age of 87 after a 3-year battle with various illnesses. She was born in Chicago, Illinois where she spent her childhood at my grandfather’s amusement park, Kittyland. In later years she moved to Pasadena, California where among other things she spent a few years helping to put together floats for the annual Rose Parade. She also made a loving home and lived in La Palma, California where we grew up before moving to Lake Havasu City, Arizona in 1986. Mom will always be remembered and cherished for her loving, intelligent and giving heart. Her strength, determination, and stubbornness stayed with her to the very end - and oh, boy…she could be stubborn… one of her strong traits. Mom was married to my dad, Wayne, for 51 years before his passing in 2011 and they had a wonderful event-filled life together, full of trips, cruises, and lots of weekends at numerous motocross tracks watching her husband and kids race and patching us up when we needed it. She was a very giving person always putting her family first. Mom was also a master craftsman. Knitting blankets, socks, sewing clothes, shirts, and making years of plastic canvas decorations and tote bags and then donating them to military hospitals and various organizations throughout Lake Havasu to help them raise money. She was quite the giver and volunteered her time and help wherever she felt she was needed the most. She spent a lot of years working with the Kennedy Foundation’s Special Olympics program, the LA Sheriffs Relief Association, and was a “den mom” for my cub scout troop. She was always supporting one organization right after another. Mom liked to help other people and was hands on whenever needed. I will always remember her for that. ❤️ She leaves behind myself, Rick and my brother, John, her granddaughter, Ashley Rocha, her great-granddaughter McKenzi Rocha, her favorite niece Kathy Willett, and her nephew, Mike Willett. Most of our family passed before her but she was always the patriarch of our family that held the strings together. She will be greatly missed. RIP Mom … we all love you and will miss you. ❤️To plant a beautiful memorial tree in memory of Kathleen Powell, please visit our Tree Store
