Obituary for Terrie Powell

Theresa Mary Powell, 78, of Tellico Village, Loudon, TN, passed away Tuesday, January 31, 2017.



'Terrie', as she preferred to go by, was born in Bell, CA. and grew up in San Bernardino County. She was a graduate of St. Bernadine's Catholic High School and attended some college. Her dream job was to be a secretary and for a number of years she excelled in that role as a legal secretary. Later in her professional career, she pursued a vocation in the medical field as a California State Certified Tumor Registrar until her retirement in 2001. Community service was always important to her so she volunteered her time for several organizations.



In January 2002, she and her husband relocated from Diamond Bar, CA. to Tennessee where she became an active member of St. Thomas the Apostle Catholic Church in Lenoir City. There she became a member of the Bell Choir, the Women's Guild, and a founding member of the Society of St. Vincent de Paul - St. Thomas the Apostle conference.



She was preceded in death by her parents, Francis O.and Elizabeth T. Polhamus and her brother, Richard A. Polhamus. She is survived by her husband of 52 years, Brooks, her children, Richard (wife, Jeannine), of Columbia,S.C., Robert (wife, Shannon), of Hugo,MN., and James, of North Hills, CA., her sister, Patricia Straling (husband, George), of Gardnerville,NV. and brother, Eugene Polhamus (wife, Bonnie), of Yuma, AZ.



She loved quilting, Bible study, playing bridge, genealogy, and her family especially her 4 grandchildren: Brieana, of Yorba Linda, CA., Erin and Andrew, of Hugo, MN., and Nathan, of Columbia, S.C.



The family is deeply grateful to all of the staff of Caris Hospice in Lenoir City and to Comfort Keepers for the excellent and loving care they have given.



The family will receive friends from 10 to 11 am on Friday, February 17th at St. Thomas the Apostle Catholic Church. A funeral mass will follow at 11 am with Fr. Douglas Owens officiating. Burial will follow at the Lakeview Cemetery.
