Clara J. Potempa, 75, entered in to rest on Thursday, May 9, 2019.
Clara was a resident of Blowing Rock and Boone, N.C., for over 40 years. She worked for Appalachian State University in the Finance, Banking and Insurance Division for 30 plus years.
Clara loved the outdoors, nature, hummingbirds and was a proud member of Ducks Unlimited. She enjoyed her home on top of her mountain and spent countless hours watching the deer, turkey and bears in her field.
Clara was preceded in death by her parents; brother; and two sisters. She is survived by her husband, Jerry Potempa; and twin sister, Genie Holley; as well as her nephews, Jack and Butch Holley and their families.
A heartfelt thank you is extended to Mr. James Dearmin for his assistance provided to Clara in her need.
