Yvette was born on July 20, 1940, in St. Boniface, Manitoba, Canada, the daughter of Octave and Annette (Frechette) Laurin. As a teenager she moved with her parents to North Minneapoplis. She graduated from North High School in 1958. She was united in marriage to Stephen (Styke) Potter on Nov. 12, 1958. They then made their home in Buffalo, where their three children were born. She always considered her three children to be her biggest accomplishment. As a young woman, she worked in downtown Minneapolis for the StarTribune and as a model. She also owned and operated a custom drapery shop in Buffalo for several years. The family lived in Port Charlotte, Fla., where she was an interior decorator before settling back in Wright County. Her final and favorite occupation was being an important part of T.J. Potter Trucking from its inception in 1984, working in administration until retiring.

Better known as Memere (French for Grandma), she enjoyed spending time with her children, and grandchildren. An avid crafter and seamstress, she in recent years found a great passion for knitting. Many friends and all of her family proudly wear the product of her love and talent.
