Nancy Pearl Potter, 90, of New Douglas, Ill., passed away on Nov. 11, 2022, at her son's house surrounded by her children.

Nancy was employed as a CNA with Heritage Health in Staunton for many years. She was also a member of the New Douglas Senior's club, attended New Douglas Baptist church, enjoyed spending time with her family, especially her grandchildren. She loved to bake cookies and play games with her grandchildren. Nancy also enjoyed playing cards with her family and friends, especially her sisters. When the sisters all got together you can bet there was a game of Cut Throat Rummy going on and snacks were coming out! When Nancy wasn't spending time with family she was taking care of all her friends. If there was someone not feeling good or had just lost a spouse you could be sure she was going to be there in any way she could, to help.
