Powers, Ellen M

Ellen Maclachlan Powers passed from her earthly life on March 4th, 2013. She resided at Rosemont Assisted Living in Humble, Texas, near her daughter Molly. She was born in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania on July 14, 1929. She graduated from Lake Erie College in Painesville, Ohio, with a major in drama. She worked as an actress at the Pittsburgh Playhouse until she married and became a homemaker. She lived with her sister Margaret Maclachlan M.D. for over twenty-five years, starting in 1976. She moved to Texas in 2005 and worked for several years at Molly’s picture frame shop doing the filing. There she enjoyed mingling with staff and customers and got to be well liked the community. She often accompanied Molly to functions and events. She and Molly spent time together daily for eight years and often had sleepovers at each others residences. Ellen co-owned the family home on Lake Erie with her sister Margaret. The home is now lovingly maintained by Ellen’s son Graham and wife Nancy Powers of Westerville, Ohio. The home was built by Ellen’s parents in 1939 and is a place where wonderful memories are made, such as the upcoming May wedding reception of her grandson Dustin Powers.
