Memorial to honor missing Utah mom and 2 children


OLYMPIA, Wash. - A new memorial is honoring missing Utah mother Susan Powell and her two children.    


Crews worked to install the memorial Monday, including a granite base topped with an angel. The site at Woodbine Cemetery in Puyallup invites people to gather in vigil each year on Dec. 6, which is the day Powell disappeared in 2009. 


KIRO 7 Eyewitness News photojournalist Terry Griffin said the 3-foot cast bronze "Angel of Hope" will sit atop a 5-foot marble pillar in memory of the Powell children, Charlie and Braden.


Susan Powell's husband killed the couple's two young children earlier this year. Josh Powell also died in the fire he set at the home he was renting amid the investigation into his wife's disappearance.    


Donations to Crime Stoppers paid for the memorial.
