Obituary Condolences

POWNAL -- A service to celebrate the life of Evelyn Rose Niles was held at the Pownal Center Conununity Church on Saturday morning.

The Rev. Eugene Kemp, pastor, officiated. Music for the service was provided by organist Julia Young, who accompanied the congregation in singing “The Old Rugged Cross” and “Amazing Grace.” Two of Mrs. Niles’ granddaughters, Ellice Switzer and Koren Pappas, sang “In the Garden” as a tribute to their grandmother. The Rev. Kemp reflected upon Mrs. Niles’ love of her family, her exquisite knitting skills and her continuing to care for others through her involvement in the Senior Companion Program. Burial followed in the Niles lot in Oak Hill Cemetery with the Rev. Kemp offering the committal prayers. The urn bearer was grandson Evan Pappas.

Mrs. Niles, 88, died peacefully Nov. 2, 2004, at the Southwestern Vermont Medical Center in Bennington.

Arrangements were under the care of the Hanson-Walbridge Funeral Horne, 213 West Main St., Bennington.
