Donna Marie Potz, age 64, of Brainerd died Thursday, June 11, 2020 at the St. Cloud Hosptial. A celebration of Donna’s life will be held from 11-1PM on Saturday, June 20, 2020 at the Brenny Family Funeral Chapel, Baxter.
Donna was born on November 28, 1955 to Dale and Barbara (Manske) Potz. She was a very hard worker and was employed as a dishwasher at Perkins and most currently at The Barn for over 20 years. Donna loved cats, and often took in stray cats to nurture and care for. She enjoyed surrounding herself with nature and found serenity in the beauty of nature. Donna also enjoyed crocheting, needle point, bird watching, reading, walking, and biking. She was quirky, quiet, and very kind; Donna would give the shirt of her back if she knew it would benefit someone else in need. She was independent, adventurous, and above all else loved her family beyond words. Donna will be dearly missed by all who knew her.
Donna is survived by her father, Dale of Crosslake; siblings, Toni (Greg) Buchite of Fifty Lakes, Mary Siltman of Pine River, David (Teri) Potz of Fifty Lakes; Heidi Potz of Havana, FL; and many nieces, nephews, and extended family members. She was preceded in death by her mother, Barbara (Manske) Ahligrim; niece, Becky Siltman; and many aunts and uncles.
