Lenda A. Potts

July 16, 1947 - October 21, 2017

Lenda Anne Potts, 70, a resident of Cape Coral, FL for the past six years, formerly of MD, passed away Saturday, October 21, 2017 in Cape Coral. She was born July 16, 1947 in Detroit, MI to Leonard and Gertrude Mika, now deceased.

In Lenda’s own words, “Once upon a time long, long ago, as a strategic planner, I predicted that the average person would have at least three distinct careers. I was right, at least in my case. I started as an international economist specializing in South and Central America. Then, I spent time as an analyst with the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA), eventually going into generalized management and internal consulting. I concluded my career with CIA as Director of Employee Communications. Afterwards, I continued part-time as a government management consultant with Booz, Allen and Hamilton and began another career. I became an entrepreneur as an off-site caterer, growing an $88 dollar investment into a successful business on the Eastern Shore of Maryland. After experiencing a life changing medical issue, I abruptly closed the business. My condition stabilized but necessitated a move to a warmer climate. For me, that provided the opportunity to move back to Florida, where I had spent my childhood summers. Full retirement was not an emotional option, so I got my real estate license, thinking that I would do open houses and home staging part time. But I ended up as a Realtor*. Currently, my Husband and I are working as TEAM POTTS at United Real Estate Infinity and living every minute of it”.

She is survived by her beloved husband, Art Potts of Cape Coral; daughter-in-law, Vicki Potts of Poolesville, MD; a sister, Marcia Grieve (Robert) of Buffalo, WY; granddaughter, Caitlyn Potts of Poolesville, MD; and as she refered to as “THE KIDS”, Ridvan Akkurt of London, England and Clicia Antunes of NJ.

Lenda was preceded in death by a stepson, William Arthur Potts, Jr.
