SMETHPORT- Anne D. Potter, 92, of W. Green St., passed away Saturday (May 22, 2021) in Sweden Valley Manor, Coudersport, PA.
      Born on August 7, 1928, in Bradford, she was a daughter of Robert A. and Mirabel Hamlin Digel.  On January 30, 1951, in Smethport, she married Judge William F. Potter, who died Jan. 16, 1995.
