Gail D. Potts

Gail D. Potts, 71, of Union City, passed away Monday, January 11, 2021, at Marquette Hospice House, Meadville.
 
Gail was born in East Brady, on August 6, 1949, a daughter of the late James and Beulah (Catchpole) Silvis I.
 
Gail attended schools in East Brady School District before moving to Holly Hill,FL where she completed her education at Mainland High School in Daytona Beach.  She had been employed by General Telephone Company in Union City and Corry, but her primary career was in floral design. She was the head floral designer for Ahl’s Greenhouse in Union City for many years and also worked for florists in Corry, Waterford and Erie.  A member of the Erie Runners Club, Gail had a passion for running and participated in several 5K and 10K races. She enjoyed an active lifestyle and during her younger years she was a lifeguard in Union City and played on a women’s softball team. She loved being outdoors, especially working in her flower gardens. She also had a fondness for watching the birds and tending to her bird feeders. The time she spent by the ocean in Daytona Beach brought her much joy.
 
Gail is survived by two children - Israel L. Potts (Kathy) of Union City, DeLaynne M. Taylor (Dann), five grandchildren - Jerad Tarbell (Holly), Krysten Tarbell (fiancé Keitron Mitchell), Shannon Taylor (fiancé Blake Jackson), Matthew Potts (Sarah), Michael Potts; seven great grandchildren, a sister - Sandra (Sandy) Webb, and a brother Raymond (Ray) Silvis (Martha), as well as many nieces and nephews.
