Yolanda Joyce Powell "Yolie", 89, of White Plains Maryland passed peacefully in her home on May 7,2022.
Born July 10,1932 in Waterloo, New York. She was the late daughter of the late Alton and Herriot Sir. She loved growing up in Logan County, in Sarah Ann West Virginia.
Yolie did a lot for the community in her life. From being one of the founders of national night out in Charles County, one of the main founders of the SYMO and part of its first committee. Ms. Powell also on top of being a loving housewife, would spend her time in Charles County Public schools working as a part time substitute teacher. She also ran the Powell Talent Agency from 1981-1991, was a chief election judge in the Charles County board of elections; you may have noticed her when signing up to vote. Yolanda was a part of the judicial watch program, and her and her husband Earl were apart of Citizens control for 25 years in Brooke Wood Estates. Most importantly her kind heart would drive cancer patients around to be able to go and get their treatments.

She is survived by two sons, Michael J. Powell, and Tony L.
