Velma Lee (Edmonds) Watson, 94, Trafalgar, passed away peacefully Wednesday morning, Nov. 6, 2013 at Johnson Memorial Hospital in Franklin. She lived near northern Brown County.

Velma was born March 24, 1919, in Russell Springs, Ky., to the late Addison and Mary Frances (Wilson) Edmonds.

She was a member of Trafalgar War Mothers and faithfully served her Lord for more than 50 years as a member of Trafalgar Christian Church where she looked forward to singing in the choir.

Velma is survived by a son, George D. (Stacy) Watson of Trafalgar; two grandchildren, Sandy (Nathaniel) Harman and Mindy (David) Bush-Watson, both of Indianapolis; and two great-grandchildren, Preston and Cooper Harman, both of Indianapolis.

She was preceded in death by a son, Jim Watson; three sisters, Eva Stevens, Opal Zimmerman and Elma Meadles; and two brothers, Herschel and Benjamin Edmonds. 

The Rev. Mark Matheny will conduct a funeral service at 1 p.m. Friday, Nov. 8 at Meredith-Clark Funeral Home Cremation & Personalization Center, 179 E. Mulberry Street in Morgantown. Friends can call from 11 a.m. until time of service Nov. 8 at the funeral home.  Burial will be at First Mt. Pleasant Cemetery, Franklin.
