Mrs. Nikki Lynne Foster Powell, 69, of Rochester, passed away at 4:25 p.m., Wednesday, March 27, 2013, at St. Elizabeth Central, Lafayette.

Born in Rochester, on January 10, 1944, Nikki Lynne was the daughter of Joseph and Evelyn McKee Foster. Growing up, she shared her childhood with a sister Shari and a brother Joseph. In 1962, with great Zebra pride, she graduated from Rochester High School.

On January 25, 2002, Nikki and Jonathon L. Powell were married in Indianapolis. Prior to this, the couple were best friends for more than 18 years, sharing the best of life for nearly three decades. Traveling to Ireland provided many great memories. She and Jon also enjoyed the thrill of drag racing. Her favorite strips were in Joliet and Indianapolis.

Reading was a source of relaxation, with suspense and thrillers being her favorite topics. Nikki, a die-hard Cub fan, was also loyal to Notre Dame's Fighting Irish, the Indy Colts and Tiger Woods on the putting green. She enjoyed observing nature in action, watching and feeding the domestic backyard birds, especially her friend the Ruby-throated hummingbird.

The matriarch overseeing three generations, Nikki truly cherished the time she spent with her grandchildren.  Spring break with her family meant making memories in the warmth of the sunshine on the beach with sand and surf.

Nikki is lovingly remembered by her husband Jon; two daughters, Michelle Morgan and Leslee Goss and husband Glenn; and a sister, Shari Hartzler and husband Jim, all of Rochester; five grandchildren, Damon Myers, Gryphen Goss, Bailey Quick, Makenna Morgan and Brady Morgan; a niece, Jaymi Hartzler; and two nephews, Joseph Foster and Jonathon Foster. Three great nieces and nephews also survive.

She was preceded in death by her parents and a brother, Joseph Foster, in 1989.

A sunset celebration of the life of Nikki Foster Powell will be at 6 p.m. Monday, April 1, 2013, in the Good Family Funeral Home, Rochester, with Dr. Mark Spencer officiating.

Friends may visit with the family from 3-6 p.m. on Monday in the funeral home.

Memorials may be made to the Fulton County Animal Education & Adoption Center or the Fulton County Public Library.

Electronic expressions of sympathy may be made to her family at
