Kay Marie Potts, nee Goodnick, age 63, of Belleville IL, born on June 9, 1957 in Belleville, IL, passed away on January 10, 2021 in St. Louis, Missouri, with her beloved family at her side.

Kay graduated from Belleville East High School and worked for 27 years at Videojet Technology. She was a big sports fan, especially of the St. Louis Cardinals. From the time her sons were young, her favorite thing to do was support them in their athletic endeavors. She spent a great deal of time cheering on her boys and enjoying her friends’ company at Belleville’s Khoury League baseball and Little Devils football games. Those were some of her happiest times. In later years, she was her granddaughter Ellas’s favorite fan. Kay was a private, “take me as I am” kind of person who was an intensely loyal and dedicated friend. She loved her family and friends with her whole heart and was always delighted to spend time with them.

She was preceded in death by her parents, Emil John and Rosemary Anita nee Hoehn, Goodnick ; and her brother, David Goodnick.

She is survived by her sons, Luke Potts, and Nicholas Potts (Claire Chatham), both of Belleville, IL; and her granddaughters, Cecelia Potts and Ella Gehrs.

A Celebration of Life will be held at a later date.
