Phyllis Powell , 94 years old. Phyllis was born in Riverside, Nova Scotia, on the farm of Ernest and Emily MacDougal on September 8, 1920. She was the first of nine children born to Gladys MacCulloch and Earl Northup when her father returned from service in World War I. Earl and his sister Em grew up on a large farm in Stanley, at the time that was managed by Earls youngest brother Vernon Northup.

Phyllis married Frank Powell in 1940. They met at a Saturday evening dance in the old courthouse, on the Courthouse Hill; unoccupied by travelling district judges who once worked in the outlying areas surrounding, Halifax, Windsor and the Valley.

The first year of their married life they resided on the farm of Michael and Katy Powell, Franks parents in West Gore. On the armistice of World War II and Frank leaving the army, they moved to the growing town of Dartmouth where they raised their family and spent all their working lives.
