Obituary for Robert Allen Watson

CHURCHVILLE – Robert Allen “Bob” Watson, 81, of Churchville, died Monday (December 2, 2019) in King’s Daughters’ Nursing and Rehab Center. 

Born September 26, 1938 in New Stanton, Pa., he was a son of Hurley and Mildred (Ridenour) Watson.  Bob graduated from Youngwood High School and was a U. S.

He was preceded in death by two sisters and a brother.  Surviving are his wife, Frances Louise “Fran” (Springer) Watson; three children, Jeffrey Watson and wife Carol of Burke, Va., Wendy Folen and husband Robert of Carlisle, Ill., and Carol Watson of Churchville; a sister, Virginia Nicolette of Irwin, Pa.; three grandsons, Thomas and Neil Watson, and Joseph Folen; and a number of nieces and nephews. 

A funeral service will be held 11 a.m. Saturday, December 7 in St. Peter’s Lutheran Church, officiated by the Rev.
