My deepest sympathy to the family. I loved Anne very much and will miss her.
When I was hired at Life of Virginia as Rene V Hastings, many years ago, I was Blessed to have a great trifecta of women bosses! Each were wonderful in their own right but, Mrs Potter set the lead. We used to call her the “mailman”. No matter the weather, even when other folks said they couldn’t make it thru the snow, when you arrived at work, not only was she there, she was the first one there! Although I had lost contact with her, she was the best boss, I have ever had! Strict, concise, to the point and a wonderful person! She came back from England upon visiting her Mum, and brought us all porcelain tea cups! On Wednesday, as your family gathers, know that I will be praying for each and everyone of you! and I will be sipping tea, in her honor, out of my “Mrs. Potter’s tea cup! May God Bless you all and may He bring you peace!
