Mother Doris May Potillo, our beloved mother, grandmother, aunt, and friend, entered into eternal rest on Saturday, April 8, 2017 after 100 glorious years on earth. She is gently cradled in the arms of her Lord and Savior Jesus Christ beside her beloved husband, the late Thomas Patrick Potillo. Born in Gray, Georgia on August 24, 1916, she was a daughter of the late Frank and Minnie Finney. Doris moved to Pennsylvania in 1947 and to Connecticut in the mid-sixties. Mother Potillo was a longtime member of St. John's Full Gospel Deliverance Church of Bloomfield and joined many years ago when the church was located on Albany Avenue in Hartford. During her time at the church she served on the Ushers Board and in her later years on the Mother's Board. She faithfully attended and supported the services at St. John's. Mother Potillo greatly revered her Pastor and church founder, Apostle John E. Wilson, and all of the clergy within her church and sincerely treasured the relationships with her church family members. She is loved and mourned by her son, Rand Thomas of Easton, PA; a niece, Barbara Golden of Reading, PA; two grandchildren, Randy Thomas and Dorise White; a great-nephew, David A. Golden of Reading, PA; as well as a host of extended family throughout the country. In addition to her beloved husband, she was predeceased by her siblings Frank Finney, Andrew Finney, and Charles Finney.
