Joda Mae Potter was born February 26, 1925, in Letcher, Ky. She married Perry Potter on May 30th. She and Perry had four children, Linda, Perry Williard, Roger, and Clabe. She and Perry retired in Vance. She enjoyed attending the Church of Christ wherever she resided. She was proud that at the age of 65 she decided to learn how to drive and be a more independent woman. Doing so enabled her to attend meetings at the Vance Civic Center with the Senior Citizens, where she became president for a few years. She enjoyed doing various charity events as well. She was a loving wife, sister, mother, grandmother, and great-grandmother. She was also a sister in Christ who loved the Lord.
