Ladonna Powers

Ladonna Powers, 64, of Hawesville, passed away peacefully in her home on October 15th. Donna was born on January 7th, 1959, to Eugene and Shannon Lamar Powers. She worked several years at Tell City Chair Factory and was a member of Blackford Baptist Church.

Though many obstacles and illnesses tried to keep her down, she never gave up. She was always fighting a battle, but her smile would never tell you so. It lit up the room. Donna held many titles – Mom, Nini, Wife, Daughter, Sister, Aunt, and Friend. She was everyone’s biggest cheerleader and to know her was to love her.

Her greatest titles were Mom and Nini. She lived every day for her daughter and grandchildren. She enjoyed cooking, hosting her family, drinking her diet cokes and shopping. Always shopping, many have probably ran into her at Wal Mart a time or two.

Donna had a heart of gold and never failed to make you feel loved. She never met a stranger and touched so many hearts. Donna leaves behind a multitude of friends and family that will forever cherish their memories together.

Along with her parents, Donna is preceded in death by her grandparents, Robert and Carrie White Lamar, James (J.C.) and Ada Powers, and a niece Stefanie Kirk.

Those left to carry on memories include her husband, Ronnie Edge, daughter, Karrie (Adam) Smith, stepsons Derek Edge and Justin Edge, her grandchildren, and light of her life, Peyton and Braylon Smith, sisters Marla (Steve) Brown and Tina Kirk, brothers Jeff (Cindy) Powers and Scott Powers, and many nieces and nephews. She will be greatly missed by all.

Services will be held at 11 am on Friday, October 20, 2023 at Blackford Baptist Church with burial following in the church cemetery.  Visitation will be held on Thursday from 3 pm until 7 pm at Gibson & Son Funeral Home, Hawesville Chapel and on Friday from 9 am until service time at the church.
