Marie was born on January 15, 1945 to George Adam Powell and Zelma Emma Robinson Powell in Martin County, Texas. She was welcomed by three loving brothers, Leon, Eugene and Calvin. When Richard was born a couple of years later the family was complete. “The Boys” usually worked outside while Marie did a lot of the cooking. She also worked on the farm picking tomatoes, driving a tractor and tending to livestock. One of her favorite memories was big Sunday breakfast prepared by the boys. Marie continued the big Sunday breakfast with her family.

Marie married Joe Lowman in 1968 and instantly became the second mom to Tammy and Chris. Together they welcomed Angela and Wesley.

Later, Marie was a bookkeeping auditor, a night auditor, and assistant manager at Holiday Inn where she also wore many other hats. Joe preceded her in death in 1995.

When her daughter, Angela, got stationed at Ft. Hood, Marie moved to Killeen, Texas and became live in caregiver for her grandkids. Marie began attending First Baptist Church Trimmier and they quickly became her church family. One congregant in particular caught her attention and she his. Marie married Les Bailey in 1999 and the family grew adding daughters Ana, Gloria, Andrea, and Stacy and their kids. Les and Marie loved to travel and had many adventures. Marie especially loved going to the Bailey family reunion in New York each year. Les preceded her in death in 2019.
