June 23, 1918-August 29, 2015

A Celebration of Life for Gladys Lucile Hinaman Powell, 97, who died August 29, 2015 will be held Saturday, September 5 at Hope Lutheran Church, 594 N Williamson Blvd. Daytona Beach, at 2:00 p.m. with Pastor Dennis Schmidt officiating. The family will receive friends Saturday, September 5 from 1:00 p.m. until 2:00 p.m. at the church. Gladys was born in Marion, Ohio on June 23, 1918 to Charles and Alice Hinaman. She moved with her husband, John Harold Powell, who passed in 2007, and daughters to Daytona Beach in 1952. Gladys and her husband John founded, in 1954, Economy Label Sales Company, the manufacturer of the 1st weatherproof vinyl "Slip-On" label for the horticulture industry. Gladys and John endowed the John & Gladys Research Grant in order to show their commitment and support to the horticultural research institute. In addition to the 50 plus years of working with John in their business, Gladys was an avid golfer who loved to needle point, play cards, fish/boat, and travel around the world with her husband and family. Gladys was a member of Hope Lutheran Church and the Palmetto Club, both of Daytona Beach. She is survived by daughters, Sharon and her husband, Larry Cooper, Ocala, and Barbara and her husband, Joe Cameron, Daytona Beach; grandchildren Rob (Denise) Grooms, Daytona Beach; Khristy (Mike) Dean, Westminster, Colorado; and Cathi (Mike) Rodrigo, New Smyrna Beach; and five great-grandchildren, Robby and Tommy Grooms, Ally Kay Dean, Madison and Mackenzie Carlin, and nieces Marlene (Don) Crall; and Mary Kay Kottyan, both of Bucyrus, Ohio. Gladys was also loved and admired by her five step-grand-children and their eleven children. In lieu of flowers, please send donations to Hope Lutheran Church Memorial Fund, 594 N Williamson Blvd. Daytona Beach, Fl 32114. Condolences may be sent to 213 Pleasant Valley Dr. Daytona Beach, Fl 32114 or 8798 SW 83rd Circle, Ocala, Fl 34481.

Both John and Gladys were pillars of the industry for so many years. As founders of Economy Label they gave so much to our industry and set the standard that others follow today just the reason they received the very first SNA Pinnacle Award in 1992. Gladys and John leave behind a legacy that their family can be proud of, and although they are missed that legacy lives on for those that knew and loved them and the entire nursery industry family. Their kindness, generosity, and contributions will not be forgotten.

Roben and I had the pleasure of knowing Gladys and John for some 35 years. Meeting them first as industry leaders and later as neighbors for the last 15 years. Most recently visiting Gladys in her care facility with old California friend Jim Farrand whose father Howard befriended Gladys and John in the fifties when they were expanding their unique business to the west coast. Surely the family will take some comfort that they were able to share so many great memories for so long with such a splendid lady.
