Tommie Powell

Tommie the Mommy

Born January 3, 1920 Died October 16, 2008

My mother-in-law passed to Glory recently. She was an awesome lady.

She was very active in her church and the choir. They had a group of like-aged folks that called themselves the “XYZ” and was the life of the party whenever they went on trips. She was an expert in Scrabble and practically unbeatable. She also was know to reprimand an AJC columnist if they violated a grammar rule.

When my wife and her sister were growing up, all their friends called her “Tommie the Mommy.” She was much beloved by all.

    Given Grandmother’s fondness for terrible, horrible, awful puns, I should probably mention that the “XYZ” at her church stood for “Extra Years of Zest”. At her instigation. It’s had that name for around thirty years now.
