Obituary

Rocky Mount, NC

Inez Powell, affectionately known as Momma, Ma, Mum, Mommy, Nanny
and Grams was born on June 8, 1936 in Council, North Carolina to the late
Luther Walter McKoy and Lizzie Blue McKoy.

On Monday, February 19, 2018 at 11:42 a.m. in Rocky Mount, North Carolina at her residence, God chose to call her home in peace from the arms of her devoted daughter, Dora into the arms of her loving parents and cherished siblings.

Nanny accepted Christ in her life in 1966 and became a member of Peterson Deliverance Center where she was president of the Usher Board for fifty-two years un the fearless leadership of Apostle Willie S. Darden.

Nanny followed her church family to North Carolina in 1980 where she stayed active for many years at a couple of the local businesses.

In 1988 she decided to relocate to Tampa, Florida to become a full-time grandmother to the next generation.

Tampa was where she started implementing into the New Generation the ways of the Bible and Gods expectations for our lives. Through her wisdom and experience, she walked the next generation through Gods walk of life and how living right and honorably, you will reap your just rewards.

As time grew on, Nanny grew weary being away from her North Carolina home of family, friends and loved ones. In 1992, Nanny decided to pack it all up, leave the Sunshine State and head back home where she spent the remainder of her years with a host of family, church family, loved ones and friends.

In addition to her parents, Nanny was preceded in death by her siblings, Albert McKoy, John Walter McKoy, Lynwood McKoy, Gladys Hardin McKoy and infant son, Earl DeWayne Powell.

Left to cherish her memory and carry on the honor and respect of her name are her children: Dora Williams (James) of Rocky Mount, NC, James Powell (Maureen) of Sharpsburg, NC, Eddie Powell of Rocky Mount, NC, and Thelma Wilson of Durham, NC; seven grandchildren, John Hyman of Charlotte,NC, Michael Veal and Jessica McQueen of Rocky Mount, NC, Nisaa El-Amin and Jasmine Powell of Tampa, FL, Anastaasia El-Amin and Zariyyah Ward of Durham, NC and Jus’tus Powell of Rocky Mount, NC; fourteen great grands, Jada Hyman of Charlotte, NC, Isiah Powell of Rocky Mount, NC, Nevaeh and
