Obituary "Make a joyful noise unto the LORD, all ye lands. Serve the LORD with gladness: come before his presence with singing. Know ye that the LORD he is God: it is he that hath made us, and not we ourselves; we are his people, and the sheep of his pasture." Psalms 100:1-3 Annie Lou Watson was born July 12, 1925 in Darlington County, South Carolina, a daughter of Evander and Annie Johnson Allen. She passed on from this earthly life very peacefully on Monday morning July 22, 2013 at Morrell Nursing Center in Hartsville, SC. She was educated in the public schools of Darlington County. In 1953, she married Homer Watson who preceded her in death. Mrs. Watson worked in the commercial dry cleaning industry for many years before becoming a certified nurse's aide. She worked in that capacity for many years at both Saleeby Developmental Center and at Morrell Nursing Center. Sister Watson was formerly a member of St. Paul Community Church where she served as a communion steward and sang on the Senior Choir. She later became a faithful member of Nathan Temple Fire Baptized Holiness Church where she pledged her service and tithes for as long as her health permitted. Mrs. Watson was also a member of Joint Stock #728 of Hartsville and participated with the Senior Citizen's Organization. Her family, neighbors, community and church will lovingly remember the kindness and compassion that she showed to so many. She raised several children in her home as her own although she was the birth mother of only one son, Robert, who predeceased her. Surviving to cherish the loving memory and carry on the legacy of Annie Lou Allen Watson include her nephew and caregiver, Danny Allen of Hartsville, SC; a son, Bobby Watson of Bronx, NY and a daughter, Linda Smith of Baltimore, MD and a host of other nieces, nephews, other relatives and very dear friends.
