Elizabeth 'Betty' J. Watson, was born to the union of Lonnie Lee Hayden and Esther Marie Hunter. She was born and raised in the town of Owensboro, Kentucky. Elizabeth graduated from Blessed Sacrament High School and attended College at Nazareth College in Louisville, KY. Betty was united in holy matrimony to John W. Watson, I on July 10, 1954, at Blessed Sacrament in Owensboro, Kentucky. From this union, she was blessed with seven sons and two daughters. Betty accepted Christ as her savior on December 24, 1940 and served as a faithful member who truly loved the Lord with the St. Lawrence Parish in Indianapolis, Indiana. Betty and John moved to Indianapolis, Indiana in 1956, where she was employed with the State of Indiana. She retired early. There was nothing Betty enjoyed more than being a mother and grandmother.
