Winifred M. Powell
89, Greenwood – Win passed away on July 27, 2010, after a long battle with cancer. She was born in Greenwood, on June 28, 1921, the daughter of Leonard and Gladys Morgan.
During WWII, Win moved to Washington DC, where she worked in the War Department for Generals Eisenhower and Marshall. Following the war, she and husband, E. Clifford Powell, returned to Greenwood, where they became lifelong residents and raised a family of four.
Win was a member of long standing at the Greenwood Presbyterian Church and an active member of Trip Kappa. She devoted much of her life to supporting community causes and helping those in need. In 1989 she was awarded the Sertoma “Service to Mankind Award”. However, the greatest award that she received was the love of family and friends, whom she cherished very much.
Win is survived by her son, David Powell; daughters, Elaine Valdov, Jan Flachsbart (husband Peter) and Beth Saito (husband Tatsu); brother Ralph Morgan; grandchildren Shannon McCarter (husband Bob) and Garrett Powell; and great grandchildren Isla and Robert Henry McCarter.
