May 13, 1925 - June 7, 2021
Doris Ann (Rayle) Powell passed away peacefully on Monday, June 7. Born on May 13, 1925 in Findlay, Ohio, Doris was one of the seven children of Clyde and Bessie Rayle. Doris is preceded in death by her husband, David Powell; daughters Anne Powell, Jayne Powell and Debbie (Larry) Bond; and siblings Eleanor (Joseph) Kochtan, Margaret Rayle, Richard (Lucille) Rayle, Donald Rayle, Carol (Bill) Waaland, and William (Marilyn) Rayle. Doris’ grandchildren and great-grandchildren were a joy to her. She never turned down an invitation to a ball game, performance, wedding, or graduation, and if travel was involved, all the better! She relished time with family on the deck, at the beach, and around the card table. The annual family reunion was one of many gatherings she loved to host. On the first Sunday of August, you’d find the family flag flying out front, bright pink petunias spilling out of the flower boxes, and a jar of pickled eggs chilling in the refrigerator. She was active at Lane Avenue Baptist Church, where she sang in the choir and filled in at the church office. Doris was an avid sports fan and often had a game on TV. She had an extensive collection of Buckeyes gear and attended games at the ‘Shoe into her 80s. She is survived by sons David (Barbara) Powell, Daniel (Cynthia) Powell, and Chris Powell; and daughters Linda (Wayne) Copsey and Amy (Richard) Rinsma; grandchildren Aaron (Kate) Copsey, Ryan Powell, Matthew (Brinda) Copsey, Katie (Devin) Halter, Michael Bond, Patrick Bond, Adam Rinsma and Benjamin Rinsma; and great-grandchildren Katelyn Gott, Abigail Copsey, Brendan Copsey, Chase Halter and Cole Halter. The family will receive guests at Rutherford Funeral Home, 450 West Olentangy Street, Powell, Ohio on Saturday, June 12 from 1:00 pm to 2:00 pm, with a memorial service immediately following. In lieu of flowers, please donate to the Kobacker House, or the charity of your choice.
