Lois “Margaret” Trent Power
April 3, 1937 – February 14, 2021
Lois “Margaret” Trent Power passed away unexpectedly on Sunday, February 14, 2021 at Memorial Regional Hospital. Lois was born April 3, 1937 in Phenix, Va to Pleasant Edward Trent and Willie Kate Claybrook Trent. She was known as Margaret to family and friends and as Lois to her coworkers. Lois worked 20 years as a quality control inspector at AT&T/ Lucent Technology where she was nicknamed “Hawkeye.” Lois Margaret loved with an extremely huge heart all who knew her. She enjoyed estate yard sales, bingo, eating out, shopping, Sunday drives, and spending time with her precious Peanut, and all family get-togethers. In addition to her parents, she was preceded in death by her husband, Louis Atwell Power Jr.; three sisters Louise Kaloski, Kathleen Bordonie and Irene Alred; two brothers Harold and David Trent; and an adopted family of love, Robert and Ida Vessels who helped guide young Margaret and Atwell with their four little children. Lois is survived by her daughter, Sherry Baker; three sons Louis III, Jason, and Ernie Power; her brother, J. Irvin Trent; seven grandchildren; three great-grandchildren; and numerous nieces, nephews, family and friends. Due to covid, a Celebration of Life Service will be held at a later date. Memorial donations, in her name, may be made to St. Jude Children’s Hospital.
Lois was a great lady. With a heart of gold. I use to call her my second mom. I will miss her dearly. RIP.
Condolences to your family Louis and to all who loved her. Cherish her memories.
Although brief my acquaintance with Lois, as Sherry’s mother, I could see a faithful, pleasant woman who enjoyed life. Life’s greatest blessings are the people whose paths have crossed our paths… under the loving eyes of God who sent us His Son, Jesus. And God knew whose paths would cross before we were born.
