POTTS, Belvena “Belle” Myril (nee Rayfield)

In Sarnia, on January 26, 2016, Belvena “Belle” Myril Potts (Rayfield) passed away very peacefully in her 76th year at St. Joseph’s Hospice, Sarnia, ON. Belle was the loving mother of Carolyn Potts, and is remembered as “Gramma Belle” by her grandchildren Taylor and Justine Moore whom she absolutely adored.  She is also fondly remembered by her sister Gwenith VanAcker (Rule) of Alymer, ON, and her sisters-in-law Shirley Kirkwood of Burlington ON and Marilyn MacRae of Burlington ON. Belle was predeceased by her former husband James “Jim” Brian Potts (2011), and her parents Cecil Fredrick Rayfield (1971) and Ethel Rayfield (Mars) (1984). Belle is also survived by her brother Ralph Rayfield of Chatham, ON.  Belle enjoyed a long and fulfilling career at the University of Western Ontario, London, ON (Western University), which began in the Department of Continuing Education in 1957 and lasted until her retirement in 1999 from the Department of Medicine. During her more than 42 years at UWO, it was not uncommon to hear across the campus “Check with Belle Potts, she will know,” as she was renowned as a tremendous source of information. Belle was highly respected by both faculty and staff for her sense of professionalism and yet her kind heart always shone through when her advice was sought; she always made time for those who were in need. Belle constantly led by example and carried herself with poise whilst acting in the best interest of the University.  Upon her retirement, Belle treasured her time in Bright’s Grove. She loved spending time with her grandchildren, watching with pride as they grew into the young adults they are now. She enjoyed countless hours in her gardens and the quiet solitude of the lake shore.  Belle will be deeply missed by all who knew and loved her.  Cremation has taken place.  A private wake will be held on Saturday, February 6, 2016 for friends and family; by invitation only. Arrangements entrusted to the McKENZIE & BLUNDY FUNERAL HOME & CREMATION CENTRE, 519-344-3131.  As an expression of sympathy, friends who wish may send memorial donations to St. Joseph’s Hospice, 475 N.
