Marianne was born to Charles Robert Potts and Mary Willett Potts on January 5, 1953, in Bryan, Texas. This little local native had such a love for Brazos County she never left it. Marianne’s legacy will stretch across the boundaries we have put up for ourselves. Her gentle, non-intimidating personality would draw you into her ever encouraging world; a place to be honored and to make you feel important as the day you were born. Marianne’s demeanor although sassy at times would help keep you on point about your next level of success. Those who knew and loved her will sorely miss this amazing charismatic personality. She was involved in the life of many people and truly has the heart of a caregiver. She served on the Wixon Valley City Council for a number of years. She volunteered with Twin City Mission. Her true legacy will be the impact Marianne had on the local DPS Office; after thirty years of service to our area. Her heart was truly in the place God meant for it to be; loving all. Marianne was a life long member of Central Church of Christ in Bryan.
Her parents precede her in death.
She is survived by her most faithful protector, confidant, and companion, Wheezy; her brothers Charles Robert Potts III and his wife Elia Martinez Potts; Jerry Taylor Potts; her three nephews; one niece; four great-nieces, and one, great-great nephew; her numerous and close friends.
Her family kindly asked that you consider your memorial donations be given to the tremendous, loving and caring hospice team they know, Brazos Valley Hospice, 502 East 26th Street, Bryan, Texas 77803.
