Mrs. Billie Davidson Powell
February 4, 1935 - October 3, 2010

THOMSON, Ga. - With tremendous sorrow, we report the loss of our dear mother and best friend, Billie Davidson Powell, 75, of Thomson. She was the wife of the late William Bunyan "Billy" Powell of Thomson. Billie was born February 4, 1935, in Thomson, and she died October 3, 2010, at Emory University Hospital in Atlanta. She was the daughter of the late William Reynolds "Bill" Davidson and Fannie Mae Williams of Thomson. Billie was a life-long resident of Thomson. She was a deeply devoted mother and grandmother which was evident through everything she did. Her love and devotion was especially evident during holidays and special occasions. Since she loved to cook and serve enormous, delicious meals, it was not unusual that she would be found in her kitchen days before the event in preparation with the greatest devotion of care and love. She took great pride in preparing dishes that not only tasted wonderful, but she also prepared enough to keep her family well-fed for days. She was very well-known for her pies and cakes, especially her red velvet cake. Her family was central in her life. J After graduating from high school, Billie worked for 24 years as an X-ray technician and Supervisor at the Thomson-McDuffie County Hospital. She continued to work in radiology with Augusta Orthopedic Specialists for 23 years until she retired in 2008. Billie was very active in the Moose Lodge of Thomson for 35 years, serving as Recorder for the Women of the Moose, Thomson Chapter for five years, and Recorder for the Women of the Moose, Macon Lodge for three years. Also, she earned the Academy of Friendship of Women's Auxiliary. She travelled across Georgia and to international conventions in her service. She helped raise funds for Moose Heart and the Senior Citizens of Moose Haven. She was loved by all wherever she went. She loved gardening, and her home and yard reflected her affinity for flowers during every season of the year. She spent countless hours devoting herself to her beautiful roses and other various flowers. She enjoyed fishing and spending leisure time at Clarke Hill Lake where she was a longtime member of Raysville Boat Club. Billie was the dear friend and constant companion of William B. "Bill" Braddy of Thomson for over 20 years, and she was well-loved by his brothers, sisters and family. She is survived by her children, William DeWayne Powell and his wife, Angie Huff, of Thomson; Teresa Powell Farr and her husband, Rev. Tommy Farr, of LaGrange, GA. She is also survived by four grandsons: William Dalton Sidney Powell of Thomson; Benjamin Thomas Farr and his wife Nikki of Pensacola, Florida; Bradley Phillip Farr and his wife Julie of LaGrange, GA; and Brian Daniel Farr of LaGrange, GA. She is also survived by one greatgranddaughter, Caleigh Sage Farr of Pensacola, Florida. Her funeral was held Wednesday, October 6, 2010, at 1 p.m. in the Chapel of Curtis Funeral Home, and graveside service followed. Curtis Funeral Home was in charge of arrangements
