Patricia Watson

“Trish” as she was called by friends was born on October 31, 1951, in Leavenworth KS, and passed to her Heavenly reward on July 5, 2022, in Hattiesburg MS. With her birth on Halloween, she enjoyed many jokes during that season each year and accepted them good-naturedly. She loved to laugh and share funny thoughts with others. In her early years, she was called “Penny” as named by her big brother. Many of her Missouri family have continued to call her by that name.

She is survived by three children, David (Dusty) and his wife Susan Blackmon of St Pete Beach, FL, Cary Blackman of Alabama, and Coty (Watson) Hazlett of Cincinnati, OH. Six grandchildren Corey, Presley, Tyler, Jaden, Gavin, and Jocelyn. Her brother and sister-in-law, Marvin (Tommy) and Linda Huntsman, lived near her in her final years. Additionally, she is survived by many cousins, nieces and nephews, and a host of friends.

Trish was preceded by her husband Don Watson, and her parents Marvin and Ruby (Simmons) Huntsman. She loved each dearly.

Trish is a 1969 graduate of St. Martin High School. Her career included work as a technical writer at Ingalls Shipyard, Martin Marietta in Orlando FL, and General Electric in Cincinnati OH. However, one of her most “meaningful” jobs was as Caregiver for her mother and father during their senior years.

Some friends commented that she always had a smile on her face. This is consistent with the many funny stories she shared with others. In recent years Trish told her brother and others about her escapades as a young girl. She was a loving mother, daughter, sister, and friend.

Trish loved her God and Savior Jesus Christ with all her heart!

Funeral services was held at Landmark Baptist Church in Wiggins MS. on July 22, 2022.
