Kathryn L. Potten

Kathryn L. Potten, age 70, of Morning Sun, OH, passed away unexpectedly on Friday, August 12, 2022.  She is survived by her mother, Eleanor Hacker; her daughters, Lacey Eck and Emily Evans; and her siblings Patricia Follet and Robert Hacker Jr. She is predeceased by her husband, Earl Potten; and her father, Robert Hacker Sr.  Kathryn was an art teacher at New Miami Elementary School for 37 years and was passionate about working with children. She also enjoyed reading, and gardening. She adored and spoiled her corgi, Missy; and her cats, Misha and Mavis -which she called the M &Ms. She loved her daughters and was so proud of them.  More than anything, she loved Jesus. In recent years she spent a lot of her time with Living Faith Church in Morning Sun. She loved Morning Sun and considered the community to be her family. She had many friends in Morning Sun and beyond, several of which she has known since she was very young.  She was in the process of planning services for Earl, who passed away in 2019.  Please join us in celebrating the life of Kathi and Earl at 4:00 pm on Friday, August 19TH at Living Faith Church, 10257 Morning Sun Road, College Corner, OH  45003.  Dress code is casual, be comfortable! In lieu of flowers, please donate to Living Faith Church, which is the place that made her the happiest in recent years (LivingFaithsbc.com/give).  We look forward to sharing memories with you!  Gard Funeral Home, Eaton, OH is assisting the family with arrangements.  Online condolences and other remembrances may be sent to the family by visiting www.gardfuneralhome.com

Dear Lacey and Emily,
I recall your mother with such admiration. She was a dynamic Christian servant.
A hard worker, she was always so creative and enthusiastic. She was especially commited to children's ministries, tirelessly serving for many years in Sunday School, Children's Church, V.B.S., Retreat or anywhere there were children. At Fairhaven Community Church, Ralph and I were blessed to know and fellowship with her during those years. Your mom touched so many lives. May God bless and comfort you as you celebrate hers.
