Gail Reese Potts

GAIL REESE POTTS, age 68, went to meet her Lord and Savior on September 2, 2023 after a courageous and hard fought battle with cancer and kidney failure. Gail was a strong woman of faith and loved her church and her church family of Swannsylvania Baptist Church. Gail was a loyal friend to many and her smile brightened everything. Gail was a 1973 graduate of Maury High School and continued her education at Walters state Community College. She worked many years as a dental assistant for Dr. Dale Bryant. She is preceded in death by her loving parents, Ruel and Mable Reese. Gail is survived by her (favorite) and devoted sister, Barbara Reese Engel and husband Bob; along with many wonderful family, friends, classmates, and neighbors who have fought this battle with Gail every step of the way. Special thanks to vigilant friends who visited nightly, and wonderful neighbors who cared for her pets and property.
