Obituary for Irmgard Allen - Powell

Irmgard Allen-Powell, Altus resident, passed away on June 20, 2022, at the Integris Hospice House in Oklahoma City, OK. She was 82 years old at the time of her passing.

Irmgard was born in Nurnberg, Germany on November 10, 1939. She grew up in Nurnberg and graduated high school there. Irmgard worked as a nurse in Germany and moved to the United States in 1966 at the age of 27.

Irmgard worked for TG&Y and was employed by Walmart for thirty- five years where she served as a department manager. Outside of work, Irmgard enjoyed working with flowers in her gorgeous garden which she maintained meticulously. She also liked music, watching wrestling, crocheting, and watching her favorite shows: Rush Hour and the Golden Girls. Irmgard was extremely crafty and talented. She loved fashion and always took great pride in her custom jewelry and accessories. Irmgard was extremely quick-witted and loved playing card games in her spare time.

While attending a seniors dance Irmgard met and fell in love with Joe Powell. Irmgard and Joe were united in marriage on May 4, 1995 in Vernon, Texas.

On a personal level, Irmgard was a compassionate, caring person who loved her family deeply. She was the best mom ever! She did whatever it took to ensure that the needs of her family were met. The times that she spent with them were the times she cherished most. Getting her nails done by her granddaughter, Shannon, was time well spent!

Irmgard leaves behind a legacy of love, family devotion, and true concern for others. She will forever be remembered in the hearts of all who knew her.

Irmgard was preceded in death by her husband, Joe Powell (2017), and her parents.

Left to honor her beloved memory are her children: Andrea Gambill; Chris Schlais and her husband, Geno; and Jon Allen and his wife, Kerry; nine grandchildren: Michael Gambill (Lori), Shannon Gambill (Sam), Jessica Traczynski, Jamie Danzy, Taylor Allen, Aiden Allen, Trevor Allen, Thomas Allen, and Logan Allen; 4 great-grandchildren: Kai Gambill, Gabriel Allen, Lincoln Molina, and Eliyas Molina; her sister: Hannelore Ganzer; a nephew: Christian Ganzer (Silke); a great-nephew: Luis Ganzer; as well as other relatives, neighbors, and friends.
