Obituary for Judith Ann Potter

Judith (Judy) Ann Potter passed away December 8, 2018, in Medford, OR at the age of 78 years.

Judy was born on April 10, 1940 in Los Angeles, CA, and was the adoptive daughter of Ralph and Mildred McGlothlen. She grew up in Phoenix, AZ and Mill Valley, CA. Judy was always possessed with a burning desire to go into teaching as a career, and attained a B.A. in education and an elementary teaching credential from San Francisco State University before moving to Del Norte County in 1961. Judy spent over 38 years as a teacher in Del Norte County, and after retirement continued to teach Sunday School and adult Bible classes at Crescent City Church of the Nazarene.

Before her untimely passing, Judy was also a huntress, fisherwoman and outdoorswoman. Even in the wilderness, she never stopped passing down a sense of awe for nature and respect for all creatures to her children. Her family remembers how she would fearlessly grab small animals and show them to her kids, letting them hold the animals and appreciate first-hand the life that was flowing through them. Judy was also well known in the Lighthouse Quilting Guild, having served in numerous offices and been an active member for numerous years. She truly touched the life of every person she came into contact with – students, family, friends, and colleagues.

She married Carl Graham Potter on Father’s Day in 1962; the couple celebrated their 50th wedding anniversary in 2012. Carl passed away in February 2013.

She is survived by her daughter Nancy Potter Messner and son in law Michael Messner; son Mark Potter; son Gary Potter and daughter in law Megan Potter; brother in law Brian Potter and sister in law Sherrie Potter; as well as numerous grandchildren, great-grandchildren, and nieces and nephews.

Judy will be severely missed by her family. Our community is poorer for her passing, and heaven is richer for her arrival there.
