In Loving Memory of Kelly Anne Powledge

Kelly Anne Powledge, 56, passed away on the morning of July 25, 2017 at home in Raton, NM. 


She was the wife of Bill Powledge and they shared almost 20 years of life together. She was born in Paris, Texas at St. Joseph Hospital on September 4, 1960. Kelly was the daughter of Jerry and Betty Moore. She graduated high school from North Lamar High in Paris, TX. 

In 1988, she moved to Raton, NM where she lived the remainder of her life. Kelly held a diverse working history throughout her life, but was most at home working with Bill at CarQuest where she worked for many years, until her health wouldn’t allow her any longer. The job that she was best at however, was being a mother to her daughter Marly Segura, and grandmother to her grandkids Myla and Maybree.

She was an avid animal lover and supported many different foundations and shelters, as well as always making a home for anything in need from cats and dogs, to snakes and injured possums, a trait she passed on to her daughter and granddaughters. 

As a Christian and a selfless person, Kelly loved everyone around her; always making everyone her friend. She will forever be remembered as someone you could always call when you needed someone to talk to and lean on. Her favorite thing to do was visit the cabin at her parents house in Direct, TX. The cabin and the Red River was her “happy Place”, and will forever be her spot of rest. She was taken too soon and will forever be in the hearts and minds of her loved ones.
