Thelma Powers

Otterville | Tuesday, July 26 2022 |

Thelma Ann Powers, 66, died at 1:53 p.m., Tuesday, July 26, 2022, at her residence.

She was born on September 8, 1955, in Jerseyville, one of three children born to the late Charles William and Thelma Fay (Schulte) Ross Sr.

She married Jeffrey Powers on February 14, 2007, in Saint Louis, Missouri, and together they have been blessed with many wonderful memories together throughout their 15 years of marriage.

She was employed as an Administrative Assistant at Argosy Casino in Alton. Thelma enjoyed spending time outdoors, fishing, and tending to her garden. She also held a very special place in her heart for animals, most especially her cats.

Her greatest joys in life, however, came from time spent with her family. She was a loving wife, mother, grandmother, great-grandmother, and sister. The love she had for her family was immeasurable, and her passing will certainly leave in void in the hearts and minds of all who knew and loved her.

Surviving are her husband, Jeff Powers of Otterville; three daughters and two sons-in-law, Jennifer and Gary Scott of Jerseyville, Christina and Chad Malloy of Jerseyville and DeAnna Greer of Kane; a step-son, Ryan Powers of Cottage Hills; seven grandchildren; 3 great-grandchildren; a sister and brother-in-law, Charlotte and Joe Sagez of Fieldon as well as a brother and sister-in-law, Charles W. and June Ross Jr. of Jerseyville.

In addition to her parents, she was preceded in death by a stepson, Doug Powers.

Visitation will be held on from 4 p.m. until the time of family-led memorial service at 6 p.m., Wednesday, August 3, 2022, at Crawford Funeral Home in Jerseyville.

In lieu of flowers or plants, memorials may be given to the family in the care of the funeral home.
