Obituary of Kathryn Ellen Potts

Kathryn Ellen Potts, of Pemberton, NJ, better known by some as Ellen, has moved on to her final chapter and she is now at peace. She is preceded by her parents William and Kathryn Potts, her brother, David Potts. She is survived by her only daughter Jessica Stewart, son-in-law Joshua Stewart and grandson Jameson. Also survived by brother William Potts (Cynthia) and three loving nieces and one nephew. Ellen grew up and lived in Merchantville and the surrounding area for most of her life. Kathy had big dreams of going to college and her fierce determination never let her down. She was always motivated and driven. She first accomplished climbing the corporate ladder at SmithKline in Philadelphia where she worked for close to 10 years. She took an early retirement from SmithKline at age 42 to pursue her true passion, becoming a nurse. She did so and graduated top in her class. Kathryn continued to help others in many different capacities in the nursing field. She worked at Temple University Hospital in the Oncology unit. She continued to help many others with her work at Cadbury and Cherry Hill Convalescent Centers until she retired. She absolutely loved helping others. Kathryn often said that out of all those accomplishments, being a mother was her greatest blessing. She had underlying heath issues that affected her greatly in her later years and spent the last 6 years of her life at Aspen Hills Healthcare Center. She was a staff favorite there and was loved and cared for by so many. Kathryn was a vibrant woman with many talents but to many who knew her, cooking was not one of them. She did love to go out to dinner. Her favorite saying was "the only thing I make is reservations." She was quick witted and never shied away from giving her opinion. She was kind, caring, funny and loving and she will be missed by so many. Due to recent events and gathering restrictions, funeral services will be held privately.
