The matriarch of the Watson family was born on January 31, 1948, in Jackson, TN. She was the daughter of Marshall Jones and Emma Brannon. She was the proud big sister and fierce protector of her two baby brothers Danny and J.R. Jones. If you were to ask her, she would tell you, her greatest achievement in life was being able to be the mother of the GREAT, and to watch her children and grandchildren grow into adulthood. She would often say, “Getting to meet my great grandchildren is the icing on the top of my life cake.” Sharon was a loving, supportive, and sometimes a little overprotective mom. She was a second mother to many of her children’s friends and or anyone who needed a place to stay and a hot meal. She owned and operated Watson’s Daycare in the 1970’s, Sharon also worked many years in the service department of car delerships. It was at Angelle Acura where she became Service Manager, she was one of the first women to achive a service manager position for a car delership in Southeast Texas. Sharon loved sitting on her porch, watching the hummingbirds and drinking her coffee. Her true passion was spending as much time as she could with her family that she adored. She had a great sense of humor, lighting up the room with laughter and making everyone smile. Sharon had a feisty personality and a kind heart. She will be loved and missed by all who had the pleasure of knowing her.

She is preceded in death by her husband Jack Watson, Sr.; her parents Marshall and Margart Jones and Emma and Jesse Brannon; her brothers Danny Jones and Marshall (J.R.) Jones.
