Potter, Muriel Lorraine  
Muriel Lorraine Potter Carmel Valley, California Muriel Lorraine Potter was born April 6, 1923 and died on November 12, 2017 peacefully in the home of her daughter. She was born in San Francisco California to Herman Postler of San Francisco and Charlotte Postler of Berlin, Germany. Muriel was an only child, her Mother gave her the nick name "Mookie". She attended Balboa High School in San Francisco. Later she moved to Palo Alto where she met her husband Bill Potter, it is there that they raised their 3 children until 1969 when they relocated to Aptos, California. They lived in Aptos for over 45 years until both moved into assisted living in Carmel, California 5 years ago. Her husband Bill Potter, preceded her in death in 2013. Muriel Lorraine Potter "Mookie" was the kind of woman who lit up any room. She had lively brown eyes and a sense of humor. With a knack for making everything beautiful, Mookie organized decades of gorgeously prepared family dinners upon stunning table spreads, she had a knack for making a beautiful home all while simultaneously fretting over her children and grandchildren. You wouldn't leave Mookie's house hungry, that's for sure. To her grandchildren, she was your typical grandma – making hot cocoa and spoiling you with cinnamon rolls and shopping trips – but not so typical was her sense of glamour and feistiness. Mookie never left the house without a fresh coat of lipstick, some jewelry and a smile, she exuded both style and personality. A social and fun loving person, she was the kind of person who talked to strangers, making friends wherever she went. Mookie would dance around any living room to a little Sinatra and then would crack jokes over a cocktails with her friends. She loved to read and when life slowed down she wasn't complete without a book in her hands. Mookie loved the sunshine, the Hawaiian Islands, and adventures with the same circle of friends for over forty years. But what she loved best was spending time with her family, making each and every one of them feel special and loved. She is survived by her daughter Joyce Balaski and her son-in-law Bob Balaski of Portland, Oregon, her son Miles Potter and daughter-in-law Karen Potter of Santa Cruz, and her daughter Lori Jakubowski and son-in-law John Jakubowski of Carmel Valley. She is survived by 11 grandchildren, Eric Walls, Bryan Walls, David Walls, Jagger Potter, Cori Goudge-Ayer, Alex Potter, Willie Potter, Julian Potter, Stephanie Brooker, Jeffrey Hickey, and Nicholas Jakubowski along with her 8 great grandchildren, Ashley Walls, Kaitlyn Walls, Townes Potter, Cecelia Potter, Loretta Potter, Daphne Brooker, Leif Brooker, and Ronan Potter. Our mother, grandmother, our "Mookie" will be sorely missed, but she had a blessed 94 years and for that we are grateful. A Mass will be held on Dec, 1, 2017 at St Joseph's church in Capitola at 10:30 am In lieu of flowers please make a donation to Dominican Hospital, Santa Cruz, Hospice of the Central Coast, Monterey.
