Cheryl Ann Watson


    Cheryl Ann Watson of St. James, Missouri was born December 13, 1959 in Rolla, Missouri to Emmett Charles and Shirley Ann Dedrick Bunton and passed away Wednesday, March 3, 2021 at the age of 61 years.


    Cheryl married Wade Watson.
    Cheryl was a caring loving person who always had a smile on her face. Wade and Cheryl were very close, where you saw Wade you saw Cheryl. Whatever Wade wanted to do Cheryl was beside him enjoying the adventure whether it be back roading, going to Springfield to Bass Pro, riding dune buggies or touring the country in the Jeep.
    Cheryl was very fond of her Elvis collection. Her daughters graciously listened, but rarely found the love that Cheryl had for Elvis. She enjoyed Old Classic Country Music and oftentimes the music was loud and Cheryl and the grandkids would clear the living room floor and make it into a dance hall.

    She is survived by her husband, Wade Watson of 33 years, of the home in St. James, Missouri; two daughters, Jessica Cannon of Trenton, Missouri and Linda Agent and Jackson Markley of St. James, Missouri; one brother, Terry Henson and wife Kelly of Edgar Springs, Missouri; one sister, Brenda Black of St. James, Missouri; two grandchildren, Madison and Quinten Cannon; other relatives and friends.
