May 27, 1947 — April 27, 2021
Vicki Diane Powell Eden, 73, of Joplin Missouri passed away on April 27, 2021, surrounded by family. Vicki, born on May 27, 1947 to Earl and Twyla Powell in Carthage Missouri, immediately brought joy and laughter into the world. Our mother, Vicki, was one of the strongest women to ever walk this earth and our family was blessed to have her as the head of the family. Vicki graduated from Hutchinson on 1966. After graduating, she went on to pursue a career in business. She owned and operated Newman’s Dairy Crème in Carterville Missouri and Larry’s Last Chance Saloon in Joplin Missouri.
Vicki was a fiercely dedicated mother raising three children Allan, Bryan and Carson Newman. She was our biggest cheerleader and our constant supporter. Our family would not be where it is today if we didn’t have Vicki as a mother. Vicki was preceded in death by her parents Mr. & Mrs. Powell, brother Garland Powell, and son Bryan Newman.
She leaves behind Husband Larry Eden, of Joplin sister Sharron Lynn and husband Vic Ledgerwood of Hutchinson. Sons Allan and Carson of Joplin. Three nieces Linda Ruechoss, Jamie Martin and husband Mark and Lindsey Clune, Nephew Robert Kennedy and wife Patti all of Hutchinson, KS. Granddaughters Autumn Terry and husband Zack of Miami OK, Ashley Caughorn and husband Jonah of Webb City, 15 grandchildren and great grandchildren and many great nieces and nephews.
