Thelma L. (Gardner) Watson of Tonasket passed away peacefully the morning of November 13, 2013. She had been a resident of the Tonasket and Oroville areas for a bit over 20 years.

Born in Harden County, Tenn. on March 27, 1941 to James Gardener and Lonie Parker.

Thelma enjoyed Western movies and books, gardening, putting together puzzles and

her little dog Suzie.

In Thelma’s first marriage she had four children; Wayne Sills, William Sills, Patsy Wooton and Darlene Reece.

Then, in 1982 she married the love of her life, W.C. (Pete) Watson. Together they traveled and worked at many various jobs previous to settling in Tonasket. They loved to drive into the mountains gathering wood and searching for huckleberries.

She now has joined her late husband Pete, and leaves behind her very close friends Fred and Jessie Cook.

A private burial will take place at the Mountain View Cemetery near Loomis, Wash.

In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to her favorite charity: St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, 501 St. Jude Place, Memphis, TN 38105.
