Carrie passed away Sunday night, July 24, 2005. A memorial service is planned, with August 17 as the tentative date.
Carrie Elizabeth Long was born in Carthage, Missouri, August 30, 1912. The family moved to California when she was about ten, and lived in the San Francisco Bay area during her high school years. She met and married George Powers there. He died in 198f6. Besides her daughter, Bettie Dahlager, she leaves a son, George (of California), five grandchildren, 12 great-grandchildren, and two great-great-grandchildren.
Bettie remembers her mother as a “pioneer lady” – who once banged pans together and chased a big bear out of their Yellowstone campsite. She and Bettie took many trips together, including visits to Hawaii, Canada, and through the Panama Canal.
May God bless and comfort the bereaved family.
