The little town of Wesley Pennsylvania will never be the same. On Tuesday, February 20,2018 one of its most loved citizens, my Mother, Mary Potter went to her eternal reward.
Mom was well known as a Sunday School teacher, babysitter, and friend.

Her faith was incredibly strong and she was always active in the church. Whether it was baking for or working at church dinners, mailing bulletins to those that were not able to attend, working holiday safety breaks, or whatever the church needed she was always there.

Growing up, our house was always known as a safe house, even before that term was invented. It was not unusual to find upwards of 20 of the neighborhood kids playing in our little yard. And if one of those kids had a problem, Mom was always there to listen and help however she could.

I think Mom had a hand in helping to raise almost every child that lived in Wesley since we moved there in 1957 (or maybe it was 1958, I’m not sure) but it certainly was a lot of kids.

Anyways, Mom is back with Dad, Grandma and Granddad, and all of her brothers and Sisters. She had told us she was ready to go be with them and now she can be happy.

Our loss is Heaven’s gain.

Why do I like racing ? Well, the colors are bright and there's a lot of movement, so it holds my attention.

Wow! So sorry Ken for your loss. She sounds a lot like many women of her generation, my mom included. It is always difficult to let them go, but, as you said, she is now with her husband, brothers and sisters and other family members she loved so much. RIP Mary Potter.

...Thank you Lord those loved ones no longer with us; for their inspiring words, encouragement, unconditional love and support, and for being an example for us to follow.

May their legacy be seen in the people we have become, and may we always be thankful for the time we shared with them.


So very sorry for your loss Ken.

I'm sorry for the loss of your Mother.
Your wonderful description tells me that our world is now a lesser place with her passing.
