Florence Helen Powell, 83, passed away on November 22, 2017 in Las Vegas, NV. She was born on November 5, 1934 to Leroy and Mildred (Watrin) Drake in Fergus Falls, Minnesota.

Flo was living in California when she met Robert Sorbet, Jr., who became her husband and father of her children. In 1979, she met Harold Powell, of Powell Trucking Company and together, they owned and operated the company for over 25 years. Flo worked hard to accomplish all of the bookkeeping and dispatching and continued to do so after Harold passed away in 1999. She enjoyed dancing to country music and loved getting together with her family at reunions. Flo’s greatest pleasure in life was her family. She was much loved by her nieces and nephews.
