HOBUCKEN - Hilda Sadler Watson died March 22, 2011, at Grantsbrook Nursing 
& Rehabilitation Center.  
Born July 3, 1921, she was the daughter of the late Denard and Joella 
Sadler and sister to the late Elizabeth Potter of Reelsboro.  
She is survived by her husband of 69 years, Roy Watson of Hobucken. 
In addition to her husband, she is survived by a niece, Betty Rogers 
(Ernest 'deceased') of Anderson, S.C.; two nephews, Benjamin Potter (Pat) 
and Denard Potter (Helen) of Reelsboro; and their families.  
Mrs. Watson was a faithful member of the Lowland Church of Christ. 
She was a graduate of Hobucken High, and was active in community 
activities, projects, and clubs, including the Eastern Star. She showed 
interest in others and their welfare - ready if possible to attend 
someone's shower, graduation, homecoming or funeral. 
She partnered with Roy in their R.E. Mayo Seafood Co., and was his 
helpmate during his 27 years of blindness. She drove him everywhere he 
needed to go without complaining. Hilda was devoted to every member of 
Roy's family, and treated each of their children as if they were her own.  
Special thanks to Jolene Lupton, a faithful caregiver for the last years 
of her life.  
A funeral service will be held at 11 a.m., Friday, March 25, at Lowland 
Church of Christ with the Rev. Norman Miller and the Rev. Merritt Watson 
officiating. Interment will follow in Watson Family Cemetery.  
The family will receive friends from 6:30 to 8:00 p.m. Thursday night, at 
Bryant Funeral Home, Alliance.   
Arrangements are by Bryant Funeral Home & Crematory, Alliance.
