Brenda LeMae (Hobbs) Potter, 56, of Moorhead, MN, passed into the loving arms of her savior, Jesus Christ, on September 24, 2021. She was born on April 20th, 1965, to James and Maureen (Trego) Hobbs, in Fargo, ND.
As a child, Brenda and her family moved several times, following her dad’s jobs before settling in Park River, ND, in September of 1975 where Brenda started 5th grade. She excelled in school, lettering in several activities such as band, basketball, volleyball, and track.
After graduating from Park River High School in 1983, Brenda went on to study athletic training at NDSU. Upon completing her studies, she started working for Red River Valley Sports Medicine in Fargo for the first several years in the clinic.
In the fall of 1992, Brenda began what would become her life’s greatest joy, starting her career at American Gold Gymnastics, where she was still joyfully performing her duties, taking care of “her” kids, until the time of her passing.
Brenda enjoyed life to the fullest. She loved the outdoors, she was a hunter, a hiker, always with her dogs, loved the lake life, and especially loved spending time with her family, friends, and “her” kids at American Gold. She was also an avid bicyclist, going on many bicycle trips a summer. She was an active member at her church and no one who knew her ever doubted her love of God.
Brenda is survived by her father, James Hobbs, Park River, ND; daughters, Dakota Potter, Fargo, ND, and Amber Jacobson and her family, Fargo, ND; brother, Brian (Cynthia) Hobbs, Hawley, MN; nephew, Justin Hobbs, Hawley, MN; her beloved dogs; and many other loving relatives and friends. She is preceded in death by her grandparents and her mother, Maureen.

Final resting place will be at Arthur Cemetery, Arthur, ND, at a later date.
