Rose H. Watson
Rose H. (Dietrich) Watson, age 93, of Marinette, passed away peacefully on Sunday morning, July 9, 2017, at Aurora BayCare Medical Center in Green Bay with her family by her side.
She was born January 4, 1924 in McAllister to Arthur and Virginia (Delfosse) Dietrich. Her early years were spent in the McAllister area where she attended the Wagner School. On August 23, 1941, she married Raymond T. Watson and resided in the Wagner and Porterfield areas for most of her life.
She was a devoted homemaker for her husband and family and also cooked at the McAllister School and at logging camp. She was known for her cooking and baking and especially loved gardening and canning. Rose truly enjoyed spending time and visiting with her family throughout the years.
She had a great memory and as her family grew she stayed updated on what all her grandchildren and great-grandchildren were up to. In her later years she enjoyed playing games and working puzzles with her friends at Northland Village.
