“We need each other when we mourn and would be comforted.”  -George Odell


We were deeply saddened to learn of the passing of Peter Powell’s daughter, Sharon (Powell) Katsigianis, on July 23 in Boston.  Sharon had struggled with Lupus and Sjogrens syndrome for several years.  She was a graduate of Simmons College with a BS in Nursing and worked for more than 17 years as an RN at Hasbro Children’s Hospital in Providence. While her son Nathan attended his early grades at Edmund Hatch Bennett School in Taunton, Sharon volunteered on many projects related to nature. Among these projects was the development of an outdoor classroom in a wooded area behind the school. This project was recognized and adopted by the city of Taunton.


In addition to her father Peter and Nathan her son, Sharon is survived by her husband Tim.  Please hold them all in your thoughts and prayers.
