MARGERY "MARGE" WATTE
Feb. 3, 1923 - June 10, 2014
Margery "Marge" Watte passed away peacefully June 10, 2014. Marge was born in Springfield, Ohio on February 3, 1923. She graduated from Poly High School in Long Beach, CA. Marge married Oscar Watte in 1942. They lived and farmed in Los Alamitos until 1952 when they moved to Calipatria to establish the family ranch and raise their five children. Marge was a stay at home mother until the 1970's when she became the secretary at Calipatria High School (13 yrs.). Until very recently, she was the bookkeeper for Watte & Watte Farms. Marge was active in the PTA, E Bell, the St. Patrick's Ladies Society, and the Pioneer Hospital Women's Auxiliary.
Marge enjoyed reading, sewing, crafts, a great dinner out and, most of all, spending time with her family. With nearly thirty birthdays to remember and Christmas gifts to buy each year, she never forgot one!
Marge was preceded in death by her husband, Oscar Watte, and her youngest son, Michael Watte.
She is survived by her sister, Constance Ashford, of Oahu, HI; her sons, James (Patricia) Watte of Calipatria, CA; Donald (Christina) Watte of Upland, CA; Stephen (Myra) Watte of Calipatria, CA; and daughter Connie (Paul) McCoy of Yreka, CA; grandchildren: Cher Angulo, Shelly Domingos, Michael Watte, Kathy Nichols, Justin Watte, Ryan Watte, Sarah Kustra, Jay Watte and Jessica McCoy; great-grandchildren: Austin, Trevor and Ryan Domingos, Andrew and Matthew Angulo, Max and Cheryl Nichols, Anthony and Vincent Kustra.
