Western Nebraska Observer - Observations all along the line - Kimball & the Southern Panhandle First

Lois Louise Powell


Lois Louise Powell 79, of Kimball, was born January 6, 1940 in Craig Mo., to Clarence Dwayne Orr and Shirley Rose Stone.

Lou, as she was known to so many family and friends was preceded in death by sons James W. Powell Jr. and Michel Stephen Powell. She is also survived by her pit bull Rudy, daughter Wendy Dalene Ford and son, Paul L. Force as well as many grandchildren and great grandchildren. Having an undying desire to work and be an active participant in her community, Lou worked at George Risk Industries until January 2019. Lou had many talents and passions having worked as a Cosmetologist, Hairdresser, Funeral Director and Embalmer. She also devoted her time and energy during one of America's greatest times of need serving as a member on a Denver based search and rescue team for 3 months after the September 11th attacks. In addition to fighting for others, Lou also fought her own personal battles having beat cancer five times during her lifetime. There are not enough words or enough print on paper to describe the impact Lou had on everyone that she came into contact with. She will be greatly missed but never forgotten as her legacy lives on in her children, grandchildren and great grandchildren.

Memorials may be sent to Wendy Ford, 1 Rodman Ct., Kimball Neb., 69145. A celebration of life is planned at the Wind Break Bar and Grill Sunday, June 9 at 12 noon.
