Angela D. Watkins Obituary
Angela D.


Angela D. Watkins made her transition home to be with the Lord on Saturday, September 8, 2018 at the age of 50 surrounded by her family and friends.

She was born on July 16, 1968 in Drew, Mississippi to the late Phil Watkins Sr. and Ida Mae Penson. She was a member of True Deliverance Church. Angela, as a young girl growing up in Akron, attended Lincoln Elementary School, Goodrich Middle School and graduated from Garfield High School. She later continued her education at Mansfield Business College where she received her Associates degree. Her last employment was with MRDD where she was a bus attendant. She was always the one to be dared and she lived up to her dare. She would not hold back on what she was thinking, you always knew what was on her mind. The tender side of (LOIS) would not let you see or know the sadness she dealt with. She replaced some of her sadness with her sippy cup.

She was preceded in death by her mother, Ida Mae Penson; father, Phil Watkins Sr.; grandparents, Scott and Elizabeth Lane, Jack and Mary Watkins; siblings, Pamela Watkins, Rose Marie Allen; and brother, John Penson I. She leaves to cherish her loving memory and to carry on her legacy son, Arian D. Watkins; stepfather, John (Patricia) Penson III; brothers, Phil (Ivena) Watkins Jr.; her sisters, Patricia (Kalvin) Richardson and Santonia Penson; and a host of other loving relatives and friends.

The celebration of Angela's life will be held on Saturday, September 22, 2018 at 12 p.m. at Rhoden Memorial Home, 1101 Palmetto Ave., Akron, Ohio 44306. The family will receive friends from 11 a.m. until time of service, Pastor Charles Parmer officiating. Condolences may be sent to 960 Greenwood Ave., Akron, Ohio 44320.
