Anne Watkins was born in Oklahoma in 1945 to her loving and God-fearing parents Ralph and June. She was called to Heaven on February 7th with her son and her Grandchildren by her side. She is survived by her son Thomas and her four Grandchildren. She loved her Grandbabies dearly and enjoyed spending everyday with her Grandchildren and doing many activities with them. She was also a master quilter and won many blue ribbons and even had some of her quilts in quilting magazines. She taught her grandbabies how to sow and two of them who were interested how to quilt, and they want to be quilters like she was when they grow up. She was the best Mother and Grandmother that a son and Grandchildren could have asked for. She also loved traveling. Every summer, when she was raising her son, she would take him to Washington state taking a new route each time. It was a blessing from God to have her as a Mother. She had a goal of traveling to every continental state and she achieved it by traveling to all 48 of them. She battled a long fight in the hospital and many prayers were made and she was able to come home to be with her family where she wanted to be. The last amount of time God gave us with her, she sang Gospel songs while we sang with her by her side and enjoyed watching old TV shows as well and when they would sing hymns in the shows, she would start singing along with them. Her son and her four Grandchildren will be having a service this weekend and then an extended family/friend’s service honoring, mourning, and celebrating her life will be held at a later date per the Pastor’s availability at the Nazarene church and an update will be posted.
