Obituary for Betty V. Watson
On August 25, God decided he needed you, so from this world you left, you took a piece of all of us, our hearts are what you kept. Your seat is now empty, and it’s hard not to see your face, but please always know this, no one will ever take your place.
Mrs. Betty Davis Watson departed this life in Lynchburg General Hospital on August 25, 2008. She was preceded in death by her mother Julia Davis Farley, and a sister Mary Farley Whitaker.
She was educated in the Nottoway County School system. She accepted Christ and joined Shiloh Baptist Church at a very early age, and attended until her health began to fail.
