LONACONING On Wednesday, Oct. 11, 2017, Tausha Marie Powell passed on from this life into the loving arms of her mother at the gates of heaven. The miracle of Tausha's life began on March 12, 1985, in Morgantown, W.Va.
She was preceded in death by her mother, Charlotte Marie Williams; maternal grandmother, Bonnie J. Buskirk; paternal grandfather, Charles "Dude" Powell and step-grandparents, John E. Williams Sr. and Betty Williams.

Tausha spent her life defying the odds and showing us the reality of God's miracles by surpassing her life expectancy time and time again. She enjoyed warm fuzzy blankets, teddy bears, music, funny cartoons, baths, camping, ice cream and mashed potatoes and gravy. Her laugh was infectious and her beautiful blue eyes lit up our world. Even though her time on earth was short, she has given us a lifetime of joy, happiness and love. She will be missed deeply but will forever remain etched on our hearts and memories.
She is survived by her father, Charles "Bryan" Powell and wife, Kimberly and her daddy, John E. Williams; loving siblings, caregivers Stephanie Williams and partner, Jim Stott, Bryan Powell, Bonita Williams and fiancé, Justin Baer, Evan Williams, Matthew Williams and fiancé, Katie Broadwater and Samantha Mills Powell.
