Brenda Potts

August 5, 1953 —– October 23, 2021

Brenda Gail Cook was born August 5, 1953 in Carl Junction, Missouri. She was the first child born to Jim and Anne Cook.  She was a lifelong resident of Carl Junction and graduated from Carl Junction High School in 1971. She also attended and graduated Vatterott Business College in Joplin.

But her true happiness began in 1978 when Brenda married the love of her life and best friend, Ed Potts.  Together they made a life of love and family and of course, racing.  Brenda and Ed raised 6 children (and loved many more as their own), celebrated the highs and weathered the lows hand in hand before he went on ahead to wait for her in March of 2017.  Though she had many accomplishments, her family was always her pride, joy and priority.

Brenda went home to be with Ed on October 23, 2021. She was also preceded in death by her mother, father and daughter Shawna Chapman. She is survived by many who love her but left precious memories and full hearts for her children, Jimmy Jewsbury and Jayma Jewsbury, grandchildren Michaela Keith and Levi Jewsbury  and her brother Butch (Darrell) Cook.

A Celebration of Life will be held at a later date. Arrangements are under the direction of Ozark Memorial Park Crematory of Joplin, Mo.
