Nancy Hoon Powell, daughter of Merle R. Hoon, MD and Marian H. Hoon, died on June 29, 2021 of oral cancer at her home at Heron Point, Chestertown, MD. Her husband William C. “Bill” Powell and brother Alexander “Sandy” Hoon predeceased her.
Nancy Powell received her BA in English from Wellesley College and MA from Harvard. She enjoyed her career in Montgomery County (Maryland) Public Schools as teacher, curriculum specialist, middle school coordinator and principal of Redland Middle School, and Magruder and Bethesda-Chevy Chase High Schools. She found the role of teacher and principal most rewarding.
Nancy and Bill lived in Bethesda for over 35 years. They came to Heron Point in 2013, a move they never regretted. Nancy loved gardening, reading, bridge, and WC All classes, but above all she was a news junkie.
Nancy Powell leaves a large and loving family including sister Margaret “Margot” Hoon Baker of Heron Point, stepdaughter Suzanne Powell Ikenberry and her family of Spotsylvania,VA; niece Christine Baker Brockmeyer and husband Thomas “Tom” Brockmeyer, MD, PhD of Pittsburgh; nephews Alexander “Alec” H. Hoon, MD of Baltimore and Philip W. Hoon of Chestertown; cousin Richard C “Dick” Holliday of Westerly, RI; and legions of loving grand and great grandnephews and nieces.
Internment will be private.
