More About Billie Joyce Potter
Billie and 2nd husband, Jesse Sanchez, adopted the 3 youngest children of
her Mom, Ida Fuller Potter. Those adopted by them;
Billie was born in Letcher Co KY and came to Houston, Texas to earn a living
after her divorce from 2nd husband, Jesse Sanchez. Billie traveled
extensively over the years and lived in Fairbanks, Alaska, Madrid, Spain and
Guatemala City, Central America, to name a few. Billie also lived in
different states with her adopted children within the US with her 2nd husband, Jesse Sanchez, who was in the Air Force during their marriage.
Billie is currently married to Charles Jaynes (deceased now since 2013). They have been married for
about 30 years. Billie worked for Montgomery Wards in sales. She retired
from Wards and she and her husband Charles bought a business which she has
now sold. She and Charles Jaynes own and maintain rental property in the
Houston, Texas area.
Charley Jaynes is a retired machinist. Charley and Billie have no children
together, but Charley has 2 boys, Rusty and Randy Jaynes, and 2 girls Gaye
and Glenda Jaynes, from a previous marriage. Billie had no biological children with any
of her husbands.
We had an overall enjoyable time in our travels. Carlene and I especially enjoyed Guatemala where we attended the American School.
The countryside of Guatemala City was lovely and we freqently saw beautiful
multi-colored birds in the trees.
The field trips experienced were very nice. We enjoyed the beauty
of the surrounding area. Guatemala offered beautiful waterfalls, lovely
lakes and lush tropical forests. We hope to make a return visit to Guatemala
My sister Carlene and I modeled on television and for layouts in
various publications while living in Guatemala. Our social life was interesting. The boys there would get together and bring guitars to serenade us
at our home. We enjoyed that.
I would hope that girls in the states would have their boyfriends treat them
to this wonderful tradition. It is something a girl will always remember and
it makes them feel special. We were very fortunate to have experienced
the things we enjoyed in the city of Guatemala in
Central America. When Jesse and Billie separated, they left me in the care of various family members and I rarely heard from her until later in life and never heard from Jesse again. That was 1962. I was 14 years old.

Findagrave Memorial #223517622
Billie Joyce Jaynes b 8 Dec 1931 KY d 8 Feb 2021 South Houston, Texas at her home. She was given the name at birth of Minnie Johnson and was the daughter of McCoy Johnson and Ida Fuller Potter. Billie is survived by her 3 adopted children, David Potter, Carlene Potter Burkland and Annette Potter; 4 step-children, Russel Jaynes, Randy Jaynes, Gaye Jaynes Stuchly and Glenda Jaynes Clark, 18 step-grandchildren, and 5 step-great grandchildren; brother, Clark Potter and many other nieces, nephews, cousins, loved ones and friends.
Billie was preceded in death by her step-brothers, Archie, Dan, Ralph, Fred, and half-brother, Marty Potter; her mother, Ida Fuller Potter and her step-father, Creed Flannery Potter who died many years ago as did her biological father, McCoy Johnson who died when she was only about a month old.
Billie Joyce Jaynes was so very special it is hard to define her many attributes. I loved her beyond belief and my heart aches for the loss of her. She was a shining, cheerful light in an often dreary world. She was a loving, mother figure not only to her children, but to many others. She cared deeply about others and gave generously throughout her life to her loved ones.
She was a woman who believed in protecting the weak and she would fight for those who had little or no ability to protect themselves. She was as fair a person as I've encountered in my lifetime. She was such a good person, it sometimes seems impossible that anyone could be so good and kind, but she truly was.
I can't say how much she will be missed and this world will be a much lonelier place without her. Heaven's gain is truly our great loss. Our only consolation is the fact that she will be with the Lord and with those we love who have gone on before her. Our great hope is to someday be with her once again in Heaven. Written by her broken hearted sister/daughter, Annette Potter.
Billie Joyce Jaynes will be interred in the Forest Park East Cemetery, Webster, Texas along side her husband, Charles Wayne Jaynes. Her funeral will take place 24 February, 2021 at Forest Park East Cemetery, Webster, TX at 2:00 P.M. Website: www.ForestParkEast-FHC.com Forest Park Cemetery Phone: (281) 332-3111

Obituary: Jesse Felipe Sanchez
5 Feb 1931 - 26 Mar 2020
Jesse Felipe Sanchez passed away on March 26, 2020 at his home in Hacienda Heights, surrounded by his loving family. Born February 5, 1931 in Whittier, Jesse was born to Toribio and Catalina (Gutierrez) Sanchez. Jesse grew up in Whittier and would later graduate from Whittier High School. After High School he joined the United States Air Force and proudly served his country for 20 years as an adjutant, obtaining the rank of Master Sergeant, and was stationed in Alaska, Florida, Spain and Guatemala. Upon his retirement from the United States Air Force, Jesse went into business for himself in the fasteners sales business. He moved not far from his hometown to Hacienda Heights where he was a resident for the past 42 years.
Jesse married the love of his life, Mary (Canales) Sanchez on September 11, 1971 in Las Vegas, Nevada. Together with Mary, they were the proud parents of four children, Serene, Phillip, Arika & Stacey. Jesse had many interests and hobbies in life. Among his favorite activities was cooking for his family; he was a true master of the grill. It should also be mentioned that during his time in the service, Jesse was a champion bowler. When he wanted to be outside, he enjoyed working in the yard, and when it was time to get away, he was always taking a trip to the casinos. He was a huge fan of Dodger baseball, and would also root on the Los Altos High School football team. When it came to his love for music, he enjoyed listening to Louis Prima, Ray Charles and Javier Solis. And of course, Jesse’s favorite movie of all time was The Wizard of Oz – his heart & soul were always encouraged by Dorothy’s sentiment that, “There’s no place like home.”
Jesse is survived by his wife, Mary Sanchez; his children, Serene Pricer, Phillip Sanchez, Arika Burchell, & Stacey Devening; his 12 grandchildren, Taylin Seitz (Reinholtz), Trent Reinholtz, Phillip Sanchez, Mateo Sanchez, Isaak Sanchez, Eneli Sanchez, Ayden Burchell, Mikaela Burchell, Jake Burchell, Abrianna Burchell, Alanna Devening, Liam Devening; and his four siblings, Felicia Villapando (Sanchez), Tina Melendez (Sanchez), John Sanchez and Becky Sanchez.
A private interment for Jesse will take place at Riverside National Cemetery. A Celebration of Life service will take place at a later date.
Note: Jesse Felipe Sanchez adopted 3 more children. They are not listed in this obituary. They are Annette Potter, Carlene Burkland and David Potter.
