Helen Boyd Watson (Nana), 79, died August 12, 2021, at Candler Hospital.
At the family’s request, no service will be held. A Celebration of Life memorial will take place at a later time.
Helen was born February 13, 1942, in Beaufort, NC to Hazel Irene Schadt and Jesse Albert Boyd. She married her husband, Robert Darrell Watson, Sr., on February 11, 1958. Together, throughout 63 beautiful years of marriage, they raised 3 children, owned and operated the family business, Watson’s Seafood, and made countless friends everywhere they traveled.
Her greatest joys were found in her love for her family, laughing and visiting with friends, planting flowers in her garden, caring for and spoiling her dogs, drinking coffee while swinging on the porch, playing slot machines, and trying her luck at scratch-off tickets.
Helen Watson is survived by her husband, Robert Watson, Sr.; son, Robert Watson, Jr.; daughter, Michelle Watson; 6 grandchildren; 17 great-grandchildren; and 2 great-great-grandchildren.
She was preceded in death by her son, Randall Dale Watson; and her sister, Jessie Karlene Boyd Condrey.
