Bio Photo As far as I'm concerned anyone who wants to use what I've posted is welcome to it. You do not need to ask. Find a Grave has made it possible for me put many of my family members together and find a lot of correct birth and death dates.


Happy hunting and good luck with your searches.

Joan A Powell

Hi Tom,

Thank you for letting me take over the managing of my sister-in-law, Joan Powell's memorial page. I am hoping you can help me. I am adding photos to the page but there is a 5 photo limit. The photo that you posted in 2013 is of a temporary location where Joan was placed until the "new" wall where she now rests was being built. I am unable to remove your photo. Is it possible that you can remove the photo by visiting her memorial page? I would be very grateful and appreciative if you can. Please let me know.
Thanks so much.

All I wanted was my edits to be processed, not have the memorial transferred to me, but I will look after it.

Sarah Norris Rozell Sawyer
I am looking to verify that Sarah Norris Rozell Sawyer 1816-1866 is the 2nd wife of Drury Sawyer.

Also, I am looking for her parents.

Guy-Storer Texaco Station
Tom, if you are interested, I have video of the Guy-Storer Texaco Station in Indiana in the 1940s. Also need some help ID'ing some people in it.

I noticed that you had put up a photo of Owen's wife's grave marker (Joseph Owen's name is on it). Do you know if he has his own marker? Thank you.

Joan A Powell

Hi Tom,

My name is Tom Monjack and I am a Find A Grave Contributor from Palm Springs, CA. I am also a very dear friend (and brother-in-law of sorts) of the late Joan Powell of Port Charlotte, FL.

I saw that you created a Find A Grave memorial page for Joan with limited information included. I would like to "fill in the blanks" and have sent you obituary text. I am also going to send you a photo of Joan to add to the page. I am currently in Port Charlotte, FL and will be visiting Joan's grave (crypt) this afternoon. I will photograph her marked crypt and would like to add that as well. The photo that is on her Memorial is of her temporary crypt while her permanent crypt was being built.

I am adding the obituary text here in this email in case you don't receive the other one I sent.

Joan Powell
Born in Newark, New Jersey on Feb. 15, 1941
Departed on Dec. 25, 2012 and resided in Port Charlotte, FL.

Joan Arlene Powell was the daughter of Frederick and Helen (Willis) Powell, born February 15, 1941 in Newark, New Jersey. Joan retired from New Jersey Bell (Verizon) after 33 years of service, and moved to Port Charlotte, Florida in 1993 from Belleville, New Jersey. Joan was an active and dedicated member of First Baptist Church of Port Charlotte, serving for many years in the AWANA Sparks program. Though she had no children of her own, she invested her life into her nieces, nephews, and the children in AWANA. Joan enjoyed the company of her friends, and spending time with family.

Joan went to be with her Lord on December 25, 2012 at the age of 71. She will be greatly missed by her sister, Barbara Worsham of Northbridge, Massachusetts; brother, Frederick Powell of Lenexa, Kansas; long-time friend Marie Testa of Port Charlotte, Florida; wonderful nieces and nephews; and many friends.

Thanks so much for your help.

All the best,

Tom Monjack
