Obituary for Connie Grace Powers

Connie Grace Powers (Herriott), 79, passed away Saturday September 10, 2016 after her short battle with gastrointestinal cancer. Connie was born August 1, 1937 in Lansing, MI, the only child of the late Ralph and Neva Herriott. She graduated from Eastern High School and shortly thereafter gave birth to her one and only child Michael Alan Powers, whom she adored. She is survived by her son Michael (Deanna) Powers of Lansing, grandchildren Lisa (Tim) Powers, Lindsey (Barry) Compton and Falaria Harvey; six great grandchildren: Isabella, Michael, Caleb, Arianna, Nate, and Lea; also by many friends, including Barb Holiday of Dimondale who cared for Connie at the end of her stay here on earth before being called home by her Heavenly Father and Savior Jesus Christ.

Connie had an immense love for animals, especially her two little dogs Josie and Tommy whom she walked daily and took with her almost everywhere she went. She also had a servant’s heart in supporting the Capital Area Humane Society and the ministry of Compassion International. She was a member of Rivers Edge Community Church where she had many friends and a standing Sunday morning brunch date.

Connie worked the majority of her life in the mortgage industry, most notably as an escrow officer for Bell Title. Towards the end of her life she was a self-employed mobile mortgage closer. She truly enjoyed getting to know all different kinds of people while working, especially their pets. Living with grandchildren Tim and Lisa and their two boys, she would share many of these stories, and became a confidant for them as well.

A memorial service will be held Saturday, September 17, 2016 – 11:00 A.M. at Rivers Edge Community Church, 12406 Broadbent Road, Lansing, MI 48917, with visitation from 10:00 A.M. until service. A luncheon with the family will immediately follow the service. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to Rivers Edge Community Church at RiversEdgeCC.com or Compassion International at Compassion.com. Online condolences may be shared at www.petersandmurrayfuneralhome.com
