Maria Paulette Watson

November 30, 1945 — November 8, 2022

Maria Paulette Watson, age 76 of Hendersonville, passed away November 8, 2022. She was born November 30, 1945 in Mobile, AL to the late Thomas Henry and Pauline Chisholm Brady.

A loving wife, mother, and grandmother, Maria leaves behind a legacy of love and devotion to her family, a strong-willed, never give up attitude, and staying positive in the face of adversity. She spent her early years as a mom working jobs that allowed her to spend as much time with her children as possible, working as a babysitter and a bus driver. Later, she worked as a receptionist for the Florida Department of Health for many years as well. She will be remembered for her love of baking and making candy, her abilities as a cake decorator and just simply being “crafty”.

Maria was preceded in death by her parents, her siblings Frank Williamson and Patricia Brady; and grandson, Scott Watson.

She is survived by her husband of 60 years, Garry Edward Watson; son, Randy (Deena) Watson; daughter, Rhonda (Ralph) Williams; grandchildren, Shane Watson, Patrick Edwards, Paige Edwards, and Eddie Williams.

A gathering of family and friends to celebrate her life will be held on the same day she celebrated her birth, November 30, 2022, from 3:00 p.m. until 5 p.m. at Sumner Funeral and Cremation Lakeside.
