Beatrice (Cameron) Powers Obituary

Beatrice (Cameron) Powers loved to get in the car (a General Motors car, of course) and travel. Maybe it was fitting that she died of a heart attack, in my mother's driveway, with the car running and veering into the drainage ditch. My Dad (Beatrice's son, Richard N. Powers) had died the previous June (1974) and Grandma never seemed to recover from the blow. Looking back, everyone thought she may have known that her time was near and that she was saying goodbye to her grandkids in Swartz Creek.

My Grandmother's obituary in the Flint [MI] Journal:

Beatrice (Cameron) Powers was the daughter of Donald & Anna (Cameron) Cameron. She was born in Sterling, Arenac County, Michigan, and died in Genesee County, Michigan.
