Linda K. Powell, 78 of North Pine Street, Pillow, formerly of Strawbridge Road, Northumberland, is now free of pain and dancing with the angels when she passed peacefully surrounded by her family on Monday, Nov. 20, 2017, at Geisinger Medical Center, Danville.
She was born Jan. 23, 1939, in Sunbury, a daughter of the late William Bright and Dorothy (Shellenberger) Eisenhower and stepfather, John Eisenhower. On Aug. 6, 1965, she married Joseph A. Powell who survives.

Linda was a 1956 graduate of Sunbury High School.
She was employed with First National Bank and later retired from Central Credit Audit, both of Sunbury.

Linda was an avid reader and enjoyed watching television and old movies. She loved to cook and bake especially while entertaining her family around the holidays, particularly Christmas time.
