June 29, 1949 – February 12, 2016 Marcia Ann (Burnstein) Powell, 66, St. Joseph, Missouri passed away Friday, February 12, 2016 at her home. Marcia was born June 29, 1949 in Kansas City, Missouri to Leo and Nell (Staples) Burnstein who preceded her in death. She graduated from Central High School, MWSU, and later earned a Master’s Degree in Education. She was a member of Temple B’Nai Sholem. Marcia retired after 17 years of teaching 5th grade at John Glenn School. Survivors include her devoted husband of 31 years, Stephen R. Powell; two children, Ryan and Stephanie Powell; four sisters, Phyllis Sullivan (Doug), Sherrie Ott (Bob), Julie Miller (Tim), Ronna McCormick (Keith); one brother, David Burnstein, and numerous nieces, nephews and cousins. There will be a private graveside service for family. Marcia lived her life by the Golden rule. God has chosen the most tender hearted, kindest, most giving, loving and devoted wife, mother, sister, aunt, friend and teacher to be among his angels and now, forever, an angel on our shoulders. Sometimes you will never know the value of a moment until it becomes a memory…Dr. Seuss. In lieu of flowers, the family suggests donations to the Noyes Home for Children, 801 N.
