Can I still act under a power of attorney if the person appointing me died?

No. It becomes invalid the moment the person dies. You will need to probate a Will if there is one and probate is needed, or if a trust use the trust. If no will or trust the intestate laws of Mississippi controls who receives the property and in a probate or administration if no will the person appointed by the court will manage the estate.
