Donna (Potter) Neal
October 23, 1956 ~ April 8, 2023

Donna Sue Potter Neal, 66, of Rossville, GA went home to be with the Lord on Saturday, April 8th, 2023 surrounded by her loving family.

Donna was born in Dayton, Ohio, but spent most of her life in the Signal Mountain and Fairview, GA areas. She attended Community Baptist Church in Rock Spring, GA. Donna worked in several restaurants and proudly owned and operated her own restaurant, “The Open Door,” in Rossville. She also worked as a Support Coordinator for Lookout Mountain Community Services for several years and loved her time there. Donna loved flower gardening, photography, crafting, and playing games on facebook. She most enjoyed hosting cookouts and other gatherings with her family and friends. Donna was feisty, stubborn, independent, fought hard, but loved even harder. She was kind and giving and had a talent for making everyone feel welcome. Donna was often seen running around town with her “side kick” and loving son, Jeff; they did everything together. She loved her grandbabies dearly and would do anything for them. Donna, you are greatly loved and will be dearly missed.

 

Donna was preceded in death by her parents, Bill and Lorene Potter and grandparents, Zollie and Carrie Potter and Ernest and MaryEtta Pritchard.

The family will receive friends on Wednesday, April 12th from 4-8pm and Thursday from 11am-12pm in the South Crest Chapel.

 

Memorial services will be held on Thursday, April 13th, 2023 at 12pm in the South Crest Chapel with Pastors Beaver Robertson and Mike Angel officiating.
