Montaree (Powell) Powell, 88, of Rosman, passed away on Wednesday, March 4, 2020. A Transylvania County native, she was the daughter of the late Marion C. and Callie Aiken Powell. In addition to her parents, she was also preceded in death by her brother, Robert T. Powell, and her sister, Geneva “Jack” Holcomb.
