Mrs. C. Katherine Powell Carey graced this earth on February 9, 1925.  She was born to James Nathaniel Powell and Beulah Smyer Powell in Eutaw, Alabama.

Katherine  excelled in her scholastic endeavors.  She graduated from Grade School, and was Salutatorian at Stillman Institute in Tuscaloosa, Alabama.

On January 6, 1946, Katherine married Elder James E.  Carey.  Their marriage spanned the years and they were separated only by his death.

Katherine was employed by William H. Block and Macy’s department stores for 40 years.  She embarked upon her career in March of 1947, when it was unheard of to hire   African Americans.  She worked in her profession and excelled in her performance until February of 1988.  She retired from Macy’s as a Statistical Supervisor. 

Katherine dearly loved her husband and supported him in all his endeavors.  She loved children, flowers, reading, and crossword  puzzles.

Mrs. C. Katherine Powell Carey departed this life on May 20, 2022.  She was blessed to reach the age.

Katherine Powell Carey is survived by her beloved brother, Michael D. Powell, and a host of three generations of nieces and nephews, other relatives, church family and friends.
