Patricia "Patty" L. Powell, 62, passed away May 30, 2019 at the Hyder Hospice House in Dover, NH. She was born July 22, 1956 in Ipswich, MA, daughter of the late Louis Krupanski and Sophie (Watroba) Krupanski.
Patty grew up in Ipswich, MA and she was a graduate of Ipswich High School. She attended Framingham State College before becoming a longtime para-professional. Patty passionately enjoyed her 20 years of work at the Stratham Memorial School in Stratham, NH. It was her love for being around children and teaching them that was evident to everyone that knew her. Patty was an amazing mother and grandmother and she loved so much spending time with all her loved ones. She also was very fond of animals, especially dogs.
Her hobbies included doing puzzles, observing anything at the ocean and Patty loved no other food more than seafood. And with seafood, the stranger the better.
