Virginia “Ginny” M. Powers was born in Cleveland, Ohio and died at 91 in the home that she loved on April 4, 2018, in Atascadero.
Ginny married Robert Powers when she was 21, and together they raised their three children in Cleveland. For years, she longed to move to California. At the age of 50, with the children grown, they were able to come to California, where she enjoyed another 40 years of her life.
As a mother, a sister, a grandmother, and a friend, Ginny was loving, generous, and supportive. She was a wonderful listener with a spirited sense of humor. She was a clever writer who used her old Smith-Corona typewriter until a few days before she died.
She will be deeply missed.
She is survived by her daughter, Robin Powers of Atascadero, her son, Kelly Powers and his wife, Valerie of Atascadero; her granddaughter, Haley Fleming and her husband John, and her granddaughter Molly Powers all of Nashville, Tenn.; her grandson, Jesse Powers of Colorado Springs, Colo.; and her sister Karen Cook of Pinehurst, N.C.
