Rosa B. Watkins

March 2, 1921 - September 22, 2019

Rosa B. Watkins, 98, of North Port, Florida was called to her eternal rest on Sunday, September 22, 2019. She was a beloved mother, sister and friend.

Rosa was born March 2, 1921 in Louisburg, North Carolina to the late Sygnora and Elbert Harris. She was a member of the St. Stephens Baptist Church, Temple Hills, Maryland. She faithfully attended until she became ill and moved to Florida. She married the late Leroy Watkins at an early age. To this union one child was born, Charlotte Berryman. Rosa lived a rich and full life, the Lord having allowed her to be with us for 98 years.

We shall miss her, but we thank God for giving her to us for such a long time. Our hearts are heavy, but we know our loss is Heaven’s gain. She leaves to cherish her memory; a daughter, Charlotte Berryman of North Port, FL and son-in-law, W. Michael Berryman; a brother, Lathenia Harris of Washington, D.C. and a daughter-in-law, Delores Harris of Washington, D.C.; and two nephews, Johnnie Jearl Davis of Southampton, NJ and Florilis Davis of Marietta, GA; and man y nieces, nephews, cousins, other relatives and friends.
