Obituary for Pat Powell

Pat Powell, (Gladys M. Patterson), passed away on Monday, July 30, 2018, at 91 years of age.  She was born December 27, 1926, in Franklin, Indiana, to Dan and Florence Patterson. She graduated from Franklin High School in 1944, went to work at Camp Atterbury where she met and later married Frank Kertes.  She held many different jobs as a secretary, but her last job was working for hospice as a caretaker, and seemed to be the most fulfilling for her caring for others.  She loved everything about being a mother to her only child, Terri Roberson, grandmother to her only grandchild, Kelly Venman, and great-grandma to her two grandsons, Cael and Crew Venman.  She was a talented seamstress and got great joy from sewing clothes for her daughter, along with baby doll and Barbie clothes.  She could sit down and play the piano with ease and so much feeling.  She had many dogs throughout her life, and any dog that lived under her roof was a lucky dog indeed!  She belonged to Beta Sigma Phi Sorority for over 5O years and was an active member until her later years. She was a member of Irvington Presbyterian Church and served as a deaconess many years.
Pat is survived by her daughter, Terri Roberson and son-in-law, Ed, her granddaughter, Kelly Venman, great-grandsons Cael and Crew Venman, her sister, Ruth Lumpkin, several cousins and nieces and nephews.  
Visitation will be at G H Herrmann Greenwood Funeral Home on Thursday, August 2, 2018, from 12:00-1:00, with a service at 1:00.  
In lieu of flowers, contributions may be made to the Alzheimer’s Association.  For more details, please visit www.ghherrmann.com.  Please celebrate Pat’s life and do a random act of kindness for someone!
