Autumn Bryant Powell

God called our dear Autumn Bryant Powell, 56, to his eternal home Wednesday, August 2, 2017, very suddenly.

She leaves behind her loving husband, Dr. Steven Powell; wonderful son, Matthew Powell, with his gifted wife, Chelsea; her talented daughter, Amanda Powell; grieving parents, Andrea and Tony Bryant; and four devoted sisters, Noëlle (Ted), Renée (Carlo), Sabrina and Heather (Doug). She will be greatly missed by her nephew Noel, and nieces Anya and Leah Bryant-Nanz, Laura Valvasori and Catherine Valvasori Carpio. Many cousins in Waukesha County, Dallas, Texas, and the nation of France are feeling the pain of her untimely departure.

Autumn was a deeply loved and respected shining pearl in her adopted home of Charlottesville, Virginia, for the past 21 years. We wanted our loving friends in Waukesha County to be aware that our family is viewing this as our great loss but what we perceive to be heaven’s gain.
