  1. My grandma Margaret will be greatly missed by her girls, her loving daughter Shelley, her granddaughter Kelli, and her great granddaughter Eleanor Elizabeth. She was also preceded in death by her husband William Potts who was decorated with a bronze star in WWII. She loved big band music, gardening, oil painting, and the color yellow.

  2. Loved the time Margaret and I played with and “learned something” about computers. I enjoyed the time we spent together from 2000 to 2005. Thanks for the memories.
