DURHAM: Louise Terrell Powell, 93, passed away peacefully at her home on Saturday, February 16, 2019. She was born in Guilford County on July 29, 1925 to the late Estelle Bunting Terrell and Ralph Otis Terrell. In addition to her parents, Ms. Powell is predeceased by her husband of 58 years, Kessler Kinchen Powell, and siblings Clarence Otis Terrell, Betty Honrine Molko, and Marvin Eugene Terrell.
