Laura Ruth Potter was born on April 29, 1962, to Patsy and Freeland Hogue in Erick, Oklahoma.
Laura Potter… man, she was wild, free, spoke her mind, and she was one of the greatest and most loving souls. Picture that cowboy with his hat tilted up, hands on his hips with a “Who in the hell does she think she is” look on his face. That was our momma, sister, daughter, granddaughter and friend as we all knew her. We all know she loved Mexican food and a good steak.
Laura was definitely a Republican (and she let you know that). She smoked the “occasional” cigarette and was one of the hardest workers. She could fix anything and take on any task. Laura was proud of her boys and always forgave their mistakes and flaws and coached them into the men that you see before you today.
Laura was loved by her few and selective friends. She was considered one of the most generous and kind souls around. She never made a lot of money, but still managed to buy two homes and always took care of her responsibilities. She was an animal lover to all animals and will be greatly missed by the community. Always remember when the rain misses Amarillo, Laura is up there cussing.
Laura was preceded in death by her parents, Patsy and Freeland Hogue, and her brothers Mike and Dennis “Dennis” Hogue.
Those left to cherish her memory are sons Matthew Potter of Norman, Oklahoma, and Caleb Hefner of Amarillo, Texas; her brothers Johnny and Dennis Hogue; her sister Charlotte Musgraves. She will also be missed by her beloved fur babies Lizzy, Elsa, Diesel, Shelby, Emma Luke, Chevy, Harvey, Chubb, and Washington.
