Bobbie Jean Lackey Powell

Bobbie Jean Lackey Powell, 84, of Center Point went home to be with the Lord on Wednesday, February 17, 2021, after a brief illness. She loved her Lord Jesus Christ and we take comfort in knowing she is now forever with him.

Graveside services will be at Center Point Cemetery Monday, Feb. 22, 2021 at 11 a.m.

Bobbie loved genealogy and was instrumental alongside of Col. Emmett Townsend in locating and documenting the 32 Texas Rangers buried in the Center Point Cemetery. One Texas Ranger she was particularly proud of was her great grandfather R.J. Lange. She was a member of the Daughters of the American Revolution and Alliance for Progress.
