Friday, October 13th, 2017

Judith Kay Potter, 72, of Concrete, WA, went to be with the Lord on September 30, 2017.  Judy is survived by devoted husband, Rollin Potter of Concrete, WA; daughter, Carol Marie (Frank) Otto; grandson, Michael Otto of St. Jose IL; siblings, Dee Ann Overton of  Wichita, KS, Dee Byron Blakey, Jr. of Wichita, KS, Susan (Rick) Payment of Zillah, WA, Lance (Janie) Blakey of Garland, TX, Scott Blakey of Garland, TX, and many nieces and nephews.

Judy began her career right out of high school with the Southwestern Bell telephone company and then transferred to Pacific Northwest Bell in Seattle, WA.  After many years, Judy retired in a management position.  Not long into Judy’s retirement, the phone co. requested Judy to return as a consultant, utilizing her expertise to train and troubleshoot all over the U.S.  When her consulting work was finished, she and Rollie moved to their new home they had built in the Cedar Grove area of Concrete, WA.  Judy was active in local affairs, including, bookkeeper for the Cedar Grove community for many years, and volunteering at a nursing home where her kindness was such a blessing.

The family would very much like to thank Judy and Rollie’s (and our) wonderful friend, Debbie Varner for the loving help she provided during Judy’s extended illness.

Words cannot express the true kindness and loveliness of this very special lady.  She will be missed by so many! 

A Graveside Inurnment Service will be held at 1:00, Saturday, May 5, 2018 at Forest Park Cemetery in Concrete with Pastor Rob Thomas presiding.

    My sympathy and condolences to the family. Judy was in my graduating class from Wichita High School West, 1962. I’m sure she lived a full-life and was very much loved and appreciated by family and friends.

    I first met Judy when we were both SHIBA (State Health Insurance Benefits Advisors). She worked out of the Senior Center in Concrete and myself in Mt Vernon. We would have monthly update meetings and in talking found out that she and Rolle had a 5th wheel trailer. My husband and I belonged to a local RV chapter called Skagit Sams and I invited Judy and Rolle to join us at the next campout. We shared several years RVing and when Rolle was wagonmaster with Judy as his co-pilot, they took us on ‘mystery trips’ to Glacier National Park in Montana, Canadian Rockies and Mexico. Good times with good friends. Those memories like Judy are special. My condolences.
