Mrs. Frances Williams-Potts, 70 years old, died Sunday evening at her home. She was born in Clay County, Missouri, and with her mother, Mrs. Matilda Ray and sisters, Martha and Emma, moved to Osceola more than 50 years ago.

Her mother and sisters have been dead for a number of years, and Mrs. Williams-Potts is the last of the Ray family.

She was a faithful member of the African Methodist Episcopal church. Mrs. Potts had no children, but her two nieces, Mrs. Frances Hall of Des Moines and Mrs. Lizzie Draden of Osceola and her nephew, Mr. Robert Walker of Osceola were with her at the time of her death. She is survived by several other nieces and nephews and one brother-in-law, Mr. John Walker of Des Moines.

Funeral services were held yesterday Wednesday at 2 p.m. at the African Methodist Episcopal church, the Rev. E.N. Warren officiating. Burial was made in Maple Hill cemetery.
