Patsy Ann Powell Obituary

Mrs. Patsy Ann Hill Powell, age 74, of Mena, Arkansas passed away on Friday, January 20, 2023, at her home. She was born on Monday, December 20, 1948, to Herman Hill and Julia Ann Knox Hill in Blackfork, Arkansas.

She is preceded in death by her parents; two sisters, Wanda Joyce Reichert and Kay Harvey; and two brothers, Larry Hill and Billy Hill.

Patsy Ann was a good and faithful Christian woman. She was a very hard worker which extended into every aspect of her life. Patsy loved to cook, sing, garden, birdwatch, read her Bible, and spend time with her family. She devoted her life to raising her children and played a huge role in raising her grandchildren. Patsy was a kind soul, who had many friends. She had a big family, but loved each and every one all the same. She was the family historian, spending countless hours researching the family lineage and documenting it for future generations. She absolutely loved Bluegrass & Gospel music, and sang in a small group with some of her beloved family members. Patsy Ann was one-of-a-kind and will be greatly missed by her friends and family.

“But we urge you, brethren, that you increase more and more; that you also aspire to lead a quiet life, to mind your own business, and to work with your own hands, as we commanded you, that you may walk properly toward those who are outside, and that you may lack nothing.”

I Thessalonians 4:11
