Christine Brandon Watson was born on July 15, 1934 in Monroe County, Alabama.  She was one of four children born to Ezell and Annie Laura Brandon.  She accepted Christ at an early age and united with the Monroe Beulah Baptist Church in the Drewry Community of Monroeville, Alabama and most recently united with Talbot Chapel AME Zion Church, Pensacola, Florida.

She met and married James C. Watson.  Their loving union brought about the lives and upbringing of four loving children.  She provided for her family in many ways, as a mother, wife, and nurturing caregiver.  She worked at Vanity Fair for many years.  She enjoyed the simplicities of life.  The mental creativity of putting puzzles together and reading brought her peace and joy.  Although not much stole her heart the way her children did, she was a Christian and served the Lord in whatever capacity she could.  During her faithful worship with her home church, she made sure her family attended and dedicated their hearts to the Savior.  After the passing of her husband, she relocated to Greensboro, North Carolina.  In just a couple of years, she would find her home in Pensacola, Florida living independently happy in the midst of her children.  She remained in Florida until the Lord and Savior called her home.  She was preceded in death by her husband and her parents.

She leaves to cherish her memories four loving and devoted children:  Conrad (Cheryl) Watson of Pensacola, Florida, Tony (Christine) Watson of Duluth, Georgia, Cornel (Stephanie)  Watson of Pensacola, Florida, and Rosemary (Cecil) Williamson of Mobile, Alabama; three siblings: Ezell Brandon Jr. of Pensacola, Florida, Olester (Emily) Brandon of San Diego, California, and Freddie Brandon of El Pasco, Texas; a number of grandchildren and great grandchildren, a host of nieces, nephews, other loved relatives and many friends.
