Maureen Potter was born and raised in Pinxton. In her early years she was very proud to attend Swanwick Grammar School.

Employment saw her work at the Players Cigarette factory in Nottingham working in the laboratories and also in the labs at Silver Hill Colliery.

She then Married Brian Davis in 1965 at St Helen's Church Selston in the snow, and lived on New Street at South Normanton briefly before moving to Ball Hill where they remained. for the rest of their lives. They were blessed with two sons John & Mark.

Maureen worked in the family business for Walter Flint whilst her children were growing up, and then went to work for Frank Smith Electric Motor company in Pinxton, before returning to the family business when Frank Smith retired. She played a pivotal role in both the family florist business and the funeral service.

She passed away peacefully after a short illness on Thursday 23rd September 2021. Maureen will be sadly missed by John & Maria, Mark & Allison, her grandchildren Emma & Elliot, Bradley & Finley.

Our thoughts are with you and your family, Mark and John. Maureen made us so welcome when we first moved to South Normanton and was such a super neighbour. The chats over the wall, often about what wildlife we had seen in the garden (in particular our hedgehog visitors!) and the changing rhythms of the village over the years were a joy, as was her sense of humour! She will be sorely missed. With love from us both.

I am so very sorry for your loss Mark and John. Maureen will be so sadly missed. She made me feel so welcome when working with you and gave me the privaledge of looking after her mum - Grandma Potter. I was also so humble to have carried Grandad at his funeral too. I will always feel an honorary Davis, she was like a second mum to me, freely offering advice and guidance and was always there when I needed her. My love and thoughts also go to Alli and Marie and her grandkids too. May Mo be reunited with her Husband Brian, mum Norah, Dad Wilf and Brother Trevor, not forgetting brother in law Cyril too. Still can't believe she's gone, I'll miss the Christmas cards in the post every year and the texts to catch up. Loving memories of her dressed in black, all sparkly with spooky jewellery at Steve and mines Halloween Wedding in 2015. I miss you dearly Mo, lots of love from Nicola and family xxx
