Betty was born May 20, 1952, in Minden and entered into rest Jan. 2, 2015, in Minden.
Betty Rose dedicated her life to serving others through her baking talents. Over the years she
prepared hundreds of delicious dishes for every possible type of event. Her greatest accomplishment was the founding, implementing and fulfilling of her dream to hold a Community Meal to feed the hungry free of charge on a monthly basis.
She was very active in First United Methodist Church on various committees. Her second love was gardening and she was happiest “digging some dirt.” She was an active member of Master Gardeners. She will be greatly missed by her family and a host of friends.
Her parents, Walter F. (Red) Watts and Frances Watts and her beloved niece, Beth Watts Bridges preceded her in death.
She is survived by her brother, Wally Watts and wife, Marsha of Minden; nephew, Craig Alan Watts and wife, Suzy of Shreveport; great-niece, Anna Lake Watts and great-nephew Alan Howell Watts.
Pallbearers were Billy Chanler, Dewey Richards, Barry Dobbins, Scott Spillers, Aarin Bridges and Mike Webb.
In lieu of flowers memorials may be made to First United Methodist Church Community Meal Fund, Lakeview United Methodist Church or donor’s choice.
