Grandma The Shopkeeper With Dad In The Doorway
My grandmother, Beatrice (Cameron) Powers, was a shopkeeper. The store was attached to my grandparents' house on busy Corunna Road in Flint Township, Genesee County, Michigan. During my childhood the storefront was just a big, nearly empty room that was perfect for sleepovers.
That's my dad (Richard N. Powers) and my grandmother pictured above in the store entrance.
Legend has it that Flint actress Nancy Kovack used to walk past the store (did she ever go in?) on her way to and from school.
