O elizabeth pottlePORTLAND — Elizabeth S. (Meserve) Pottle, 84, of Portland died on Monday, Nov. 11, 2013 at Mercy Hospital.

She was the wife of the late Lennie Pottle, who died Nov. 22, 2000.

Elizabeth was born in Gorham, on Sept. 21, 1929, the daughter of the late Roger and Cynthia (Tripp) Meserve. She attended local area schools and graduated from Gorham High School.

She is now in heaven with her husband Lennie; and her grandson, her heart of gold.

She will be missed by her daughter, Sharon M. Pottle of Portland; her grandson of Portland; her two great-grandchildren; and her brother, Robert Meserve of Raymond.
