Abbie Nowling Watson –
February 22, 1921 – September 3, 2011
Abbie peacefully passed on to be with her Lord, Jesus Christ in the early morning hours of September 3rd. She was a life-long resident of Jay, FL, and a member of Cora Baptist Church. Abbie was born to the late King David Nowling and Melissa Magaha Nowling. Being the only girl and the baby of the family, she was the ‘apple of her daddy’s eye’ and grew up with four older brothers, Roy, Arlie, Arthur “Shorty”, and Ross Nowling. On November 16, 1940, Abbie married the love of her life, Bill Watson. Abbie and Bill were married for 68 years and shared the joy of two sons, William Danny Watson (deceased) and Kenneth H. Watson.
Abbie could be described as kind, generous, loving and devoted. She was a wonderful homemaker who had many interests including cooking, crafting, fishing, and traveling. She was an active member of her church and fed countless children over the years as a kitchen volunteer at Vacation Bible School. She had a fun-loving spirit and was an active part in the lives of her grandchildren and great-grandchildren. She will be greatly missed and forever remembered by her surviving son, Kenneth H. Watson (Jean), and beloved granddaughters: Kim Watson Chambless (Chris), Andriea Watson, and Jamie Watson Mattina (Rodney). Her special little treasures were her great-grandchildren: Brandon Chambless, Bailey Calhoun, Kenzee Calhoun, and Sophia Grace Mattina. She is also survived by countless friends and relatives who blessed her life and touched her heart.
Services were held on Tuesday, September 6, 2011 at Cora Baptist Church in Jay, FL, officiated by Jay Funeral Home. In lieu of flowers the family requested a donation to be made in Abbie’s honor to the Cora Baptist Church Cemetery Maintenance fund. The family would like to extend a special thank you to Covenant Hospice and Dr. Maged Nashed.
Jay Funeral Home is in charge of arrangements.
