Elizabeth (Betty) Potter Koller

 

Elizabeth (Betty) Potter Koller, age 95, completed her journey here on earth Thursday, August 17, 2023. She was born March 19, 1928, to Robert John and Lottie Rucker Potter in Collinston, Utah.

Betty grew up in East Garland, Utah on the family farm with seven brothers and sisters. You could find her driving the tractor and working alongside her dad. She graduated from Bear River High School where she was on the swim team. Her favorite childhood pastime was swimming in the canal with her cousins.

She married P. LaVell Koller November 17, 1948 in the Logan LDS Temple. They made their home in Weston, Idaho where they raised eight children. Betty loved working outdoors in her garden. She took pride in her yard and could be seen on her riding lawn mower well into her 90’s.

She found her love of cooking while working at the Pie Dump Restaurant after high school. She was always a great cook. You never left her house hungry. She used her gift of service in numerous church callings and on the Board of Guardians in Franklin County. It was a highlight in her life to serve a mission to South Carolina with LaVell. Many were blessed by her example.

Betty is survived by her children: Valeen (Charles) Illsley, Jane (Craig) Fotheringham, Scott Koller, Gwen (Michael) Marcek, Carl (Lori) Koller, David (Lisa) Koller, Liz (Chet) Hugo; 33 grandchildren, 79 great-grandchildren (plus two on the way), and four great-great-grandchildren.

She was preceded in death by her husband, P. LaVell Koller; her daughter, Diane (Lynn) Bingham; her great-grand daughter, Aurelia Rasmussen; her parents and her siblings.

The family would like to express their appreciation for the kindness Betty received at Autumn Care Center and the Hospice nurses, Jonie and Kat. A special thank you to Sierra (granddaughter) and Michael Rasmussen who cared for her while in her home. 

Betty especially loved the weekly visits from her cousin Lois, and her nieces Suzanne, Becky, and Cheryl. She always looked forward to seeing her friends, neighbors and family who stopped by regularly.
