My Mom and Dad: Thelma and Charley Morittz


My Story

      My story begins at my birth on July 6, 1944 to Thelma Wynona Jackson Morittz and Charles Nealy Morittz.  I was born near Sallisaw Oklahoma.  The journey has been very eventful for me. 
     I met Ralph Owen Powless Sr. in Corning, CA. in the summer of 1963.  Ralph was a minister holding a revival and my mother invited him to dinner.  We were married on August 18, 1963.  
    A year later, Ralph Owen Powless, Jr. was born on August 17, 1964.  He was followed by six more children-Robert DeWayne Powless on May 23, 1966, Basil Curtis Powless on April 30, 1967, Michael Shawn Powless on April 23, 1968, Robin Charlynn Powless on February 3, 1970, Vincent Earl Scott Powless on March 26, 1971, and finally, Steven Edward Powless, Sr. on July 3, 1973.  While in South Dakota on a mission trip in 1978, we adopted twin girls, Gloria Grace BearRunner and Geraldine Edith BearRunner born July 17, 1972.  We now have numerous grandchildren and five great-grandchildren. 
     In 1996, after raising my family, I went back to school and earned a Bachelors Degree in Sociology at Northeastern State University in Tahlequah Oklahoma.  I am now single and live in a small town in northeastern Oklahoma.
