The Paul Mortuary
The "Queen" of Granite Street passed away peacefully in her home of many years, surrounded by her loving family. She overcame many physical obstacles later in life and was a warrior to the end.
Albertine graduated from Pacific Grove High School and was one of the first women to graduate from MPC. She married the love of her life, Cecil Potter, in 1949. Together they shared fifty-two amazing years raising their children as well as helping many others in the community.
As a devoted mother, she was actively involved in the activities of her thirteen children, yet still found the time to mentor many others. She was a longtime member at Saint Angela Merici Church and active at the Blind and Visually Impaired Center. Prior to her volunteer work she was employed at the Naval Postgraduate School for fifteen years as an Administrative Assistant.
Albertine is survived by her children; Frank, Cecil, Luis, Theresa, Emily, Dessa, Elizabeth, Gary, Lisa, Bruce, Tina, Mary, Joe and her extended sons Olaf Schoknecht and John Palmer. She was blessed with 34 grandchild and 24 great grandchildren. She is also survived by her loving siblings; Aurelie Garcia, Carmen Courtney, Elena Walker and Tanjay Castro as well as
extended family Della and Reynold and numerous nieces and nephews.
