Sallie Martha Cheatham Powell, of Louisville, celebrated her 100th birthday in April. Her big day was April 4, 2011, and her family and friends celebrated her birthday on April 10 in the reception hall of the Clifton Baptist Church, Louisville, KY.

V. Faye Powell Warren, of Columbia, KY, said, "Finer wishes for my beloved Aunt Sallie could not be more wished," than from her devoted niece; who also said, "I love you always, Aunt Sallie."

The 100th birthday celebrant is the daughter of the late Owen Valmont Cheatham and Charlotta Ermine Holladay Cheatham, popularly known as "Lottie" Cheatham. Mrs. Powell is the wife of the late George Hershel Powell.

Four generations of Mrs. Powell's family attended her 100th birthday celebration.

Mrs. Powell is a native of Cumberland County and moved to Adair County with members of her family when she was a young girl.

Mrs. Powell has lived in Louisville for more than 60 years.

She has many family members and friends in the proximity of Adair County. Mrs. Powel's late brother and sister, Clyde Holladay Cheatham and Daisy Dimple Cheatham Powell, both smiled from Heaven on Sallie's big day!

May Sallie Martha Cheatham Powell be blessed with many more happy birthdays. Her dear daughters and sons are Ruby Chrystine Powell Overcash, Charles Gwen Powell, Forrest Lynn Powell, and the late Janet Gayle Powell.
