Betty L. Watson

Betty L. Watson, 82, passed away peacefully February 17, 2008, at Encore Senior Village in Pensacola, Florida. She had suffered from Alzheimer’s Disease for over a decade.

Betty was a lifelong resident of McKeesport until her illness necessitated her move to a nursing home near family in Pensacola in 1997. She was born March 11, 1925, the only child of Edwin and Margaret Cucchi. Betty was married for 27 years to the late Allyn R. Watson. She is survived by her daughter, Janie Russ, of Statesville, North Carolina, son, Edwin Watson, of Pensacola, Florida, daughter-in-law Donna Watson; and three grandchildren, Jennifer, Christopher and Douglas Watson.

Betty was a long time member of Sampson’s Mills Presbterian Church in White Oak.

A service will be held Thursday, February 21 at 11:00 AM in the Hunter Funeral Home, Inc., 1600 Coursin Street, McKeesport with the Rev. Dr. J. Bruce Byers officiating. Interment will follow in McKeesport & Versailles Cemetery.

The family would like to thank the staff at Encore Senior Village for the many years of compassionate care they provided Betty. Covenant Hospice of Pensacola was also a caring source of support during Betty’s last months.
