Linda Suzanne Powell, age 69, passed away Sunday August 9,2020 in Nashville, TN. Formerly from Marion, IN.
She was a graduate of Marion High School in 1969 and then attended Taylor University (1970-71) and Marion College (1972-73), receiving her BS from Marion College in 1973 in Sociology/Education, and received her Masters in Education at Ball State University. She was an educator through multiple schools in Grant County. Linda had a love for old fashioned ice cream parlors and worked at one in the early 1990’s. She also had her realtor’s license. She was a member of First United Methodist Church in Marion on Adams Street and some of her greater joys she reminisced about were times spent working with the staff as Director of Children’s Ministry. Later in her life she owned and operated Wild Bird Crossing for a short time. Linda had many loves in her life. The main love being her children and grandson. She was an avid John Denver fan and enjoyed attending live concerts. During a family trip to Colorado she even followed John Denver and his lawyer down a street in Aspen much to the chagrin of her daughter in her car with the windows down and “Rocky Mountain High” at full volume. Linda also loved bird watching and collected many things, but mostly enjoyed, Betsey Clark, Jim Henson memorabilia, Pillsbury Doughboy, Jiminy Cricket and antique Santa Claus figurines and sleigh bells. She loved her pets and had multiple spoiled shih-tzus and cats.
