Elsie Lou Potts

 

Elsie Lou Potts, 79, of Owensboro, went to be with the Lord on August 10, 2023. She was born in Harvey, IL, on April 8, 1944, to the late Woodrow and Edith Johnson Carlton. Elsie was a member of Sts. Joseph and Paul Catholic Church. She had an insatiable appetite for books, adored cats, enjoyed solving crossword puzzles, and never missed a NASCAR race on Sundays. Her happiest moments were those spent with her family and grandchildren. The family extends their heartfelt gratitude to Betty Harris and Eddie Potts for their unwavering support, accompanying Elsie to appointments and always looking out for her well-being. While at the Hermitage, Elsie formed lasting friendships and received exceptional care from the dedicated staff.

In addition to her parents, she was preceded in death by her husband, William C. Potts: brother, Lee Carlton; sisters, Carole Moquin and Reba Richards; brother-in-laws, Gilbert Urban and Glenn Richards, and sister-in-laws, Trudy Carlton and Sylvia Carlton.

Elsie is survived by her two sons, Bill Potts and wife Kim of Henderson, Ky., and Steve Potts and wife Mary of Madison, Al.; three grandchildren, Brandon Potts of Indianapolis, IN, Alex Potts, of Henderson and Caitlin Potts of Madison; brothers Albert Carlton and Jim Carlton (Donna), sister-in-laws Ruth Marion (Roger) and Catherine Urban; and brother-in-laws Kenny, Bobby, Eddie Potts and Tom Moquin.  

The funeral mass will be 10 am Monday, August 14, 2023, at Sts. Joseph and Paul Catholic Church, with burial following at Resurrection Cemetery. Visitation will be from 3 pm until 6 pm Sunday, with prayers starting at 5 pm at Glenn Funeral Home and Crematory. Visitation on Monday will start at 9 am at the church.
