Our beloved mother, grandmother, great-grandmother and great-great-grandmother, Gladys Potter, finished her earthly race from her home on Buck Mountain where she had lived for more than 101 years. She was preceded in death by her parents, William H. and Emma Potter Elliott; her beloved husband, Crawford Potter; her most beloved son, Fred A. Potter; two sisters, Maggie Bowers and Goldie McKinney; and one brother, Henry Elliott.
Gladys was a member of the Elizabethton Church of Christ.
Gladys leaves behind her son, Albert (Norma) Potter, who treated her with more love and respect than any blood daughter could have; a daughter, Bell Bennett; seven grandchildren; nine great-grandchildren; and six great-great-grandchildren.
A graveside service will be conducted at 10 a.m. Wednesday, January 5, in the Elliott Family Cemetery. The family would like to express a special “Thank You” to the staff of Amedisys Hospice. Special thanks to Billie Allen, who has helped dad and mom for years. So much appreciated are Kacey Lyons, Emma Holtsclaw and Diana Potter, who made it possible for mom to stay home. In lieu of flowers, memorials may be made to the Elizabethton Church of Christ, 137 East C Street, Elizabethton, TN 37643. Condolences may be sent to the family at our website, www.memorialfcelizabethton.com.
Memorial Funeral Chapel is serving the Potter family.
