Obituary for Jean Perry Potts

Jean Perry Potts, beloved wife, mother, sister and friend was surrounded by her family as she went to be with the Lord on Saturday, January 26, 2019.

She is survived by her husband; Robert Grayson (RG) Potts, daughter; Shelby Johnson Wright of (Mechanicsville, VA), three sisters; Patsy Barrow (Gerald) (Sylvania, GA), Carolyn Perry (Richmond, VA), and Peggy Ikall (Joe) of (Chocowinity, NC).

Jean was born in Beaufort County on April 16, 1939. Over the years she worked for many companies as a bookkeeper, secretary, etc. but may be best remembered as the co-owner and operator of Big John’s Sporting Goods. Wherever Jean worked or came in contact with people, she was open to being a caring listener and loving friend. Jean loved her Lord and her church family.
