Betty Powell

Betty Mae Jenkins Powell, 84, of Marthaville passed from this life on April 23, 2019. She was born to Willis Edward Jenkins and Lucille Ammons Jenkins on April 1, 1935 in Robeline.

In the pages of the Bible, the Lord inspired the question, “Who can find a virtuous woman? for her price is far above rubies…”; though she would never have claimed it, in the gentle, sincere nature of Betty Powell that question was answered. She was always happy; happy with what and whom God had given her and dedicated to her charge. To her, the heart of a person mattered most; she lived life simply, and without pretense, thankful for her many blessings. Behind Betty Mae’s sweet smile and soft-spoken voice was an inner strength, a strength of character, that fought for the goodness in others, established peace in the hearts of her family through life’s struggles, and loved unapologetically, without limitation and without condition.
