Barbara Nell Watts (Childress) Obituary

Barbara (Childress) Watts entered Heaven's gate on Tuesday Sept. 29, in El Paso, Texas. She was born to William (Daddy Bill) Hall and Neville (Nanil) Hall on May 21, 1937 in Stratford, Oklahoma.

Barbara attended school in Carlsbad, N.M. before moving to Alamogordo, N.M. where she lived over 40 years. She has lived in El Paso, Texas the last 15 years. Barbara was an office manager for many, but is most proud of her time with Alamogordo Medical Group for over 25 years!

As a consummate wife, mother and homemaker, Barbara's true passion and joy were her family. Her walls were filled with beautiful pictures of all her children, grandchildren and extended family. She loved traveling with her husband from coast to coast to visit her extended family each year. Grandma Barbara also loved cooking, and reading her mounds of catalogs that arrived each week while preparing her birthday and Christmas lists year-round.

Barbara is survived by her loving husband, William (Bill) Watts; her wonderful children, daughter Nita Barnes of Spokane, Wash., and son Brad Childress and daughter-in-law Laura of Arlington, Texas; her precious grandchildren, Shawnah LeClair and husband Matt, and Brandon Childress and Wife Courtney; beautiful great-grandchildren, Brysen Davis, Mason Laurence, Jensen, Shane, Kelly and Ethan LeClair. She is also survived by her stepchildren, Sheryl Watts Hines and Lindsey Divis, Andrew and Dani Watts and great-grandson Hunter Serlo. Barbara is also lovingly survived by her brother, William (Bill) Hall, Jr. and wife Barbara; and sister, Norma Hall Rogers. Barbara has many nieces and nephews she adored as well.

Barbara is predeceased by her precious grandson, Shane Michael Barnes; sister, Bettye Hall Hurley; and two dog-children, Precious and Gigi.
