Sandra Lynn Potterton,

age 60, was taken into the

arms of her Lord and Sa-

vior Jesus Christ on Sep-

tember 19, 2021 in Minot,

North Dakota.

Sandra was born on

May 11, 1961 in

Milwaukee, Wisconsin. In

1979, she graduated from

Martin Luther High

School in Greendale and

studied nursing at Viterbo

University in La Crosse

and Moraine Park Techni-

cal College in Fond du

Lac. She left Wisconsin

for North Dakota in 2001

to continue her nursing

career and has never

looked back.

Her vocational gift was

to help people, with a spe-

cial heart for the elderly.

Most recently she served

as an Administrative

Nurse at Heart of America

in Rugby. She was known

as a hard worker, offering

a smile, timely advice,

and a helping hand to

everyone. In 2015, her ef-

forts were recognized by

the North Dakota Long

Term Care Association

with the presentation of

the Caregiver Award.

Sandra also had a soft

spot for animals, and took

care of her three cats after

years of owning a variety

of critters including dogs,

cats, and even snakes!

She loved the outdoors

and was an avid fisher-

man. She could usually

be found with a book in

her hand, figuring out

something on her comput-

er, or working on a puz-


Physically life was hard

for Sandra, but she didn’t

complain and was always

appreciative of those who

cared for her. She was in-

fected with Covid-19 in

November and never re-

gained full strength, final-

ly succumbing to organ

failure after a brief stay in

the hospital.

Sandra was preceded

in death by her parents

Harold and June Potter-

ton, stepmother Minette
