It is with great sadness we announce the passing of our beloved mother, sister and aunt, Jerri Mae (Potts) Sanders on June 14, 2013. Jerri fought a short and courageous battle with cancer and passed away with her two sons and daughter-in-law by her side.
She was born and raised in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan before moving to Alberta to meet her husband and start a family. When she wasn’t raising her two boys, she was working as a nurse at the Fort Saskatchewan Hospital. For the final chapter of her life, she moved to Salmon Arm, BC with her husband where they spent their final years together in the Shuswap.
Jerri was predeceased by her loving husband and soulmate Rick and her parents Frederick and Shirley Potts. She leaves behind her sons Patrick (Jessica) and James, her sister Jan Elliot, her brother Randie Potts, loving nieces, nephews, and many close friends.
Her laughter and smile will live long in the hearts of those who knew her. The family will be having a private celebration of her life in Vancouver where she will join her husband. We would like to thank the staff at Bastion Place for the wonderful care they provided to our mother.
