Debbie, as she was affectionately known, dedicated her life to Jehovah and symbolized her dedication by water baptism on October 24, 2013, as one of Jehovah’s Witnesses. She received her education in the Accomack County Public Schools and also earned an Associate’s degree and several certifications in the medical field. Subsequently, she started her own successful healthcare business, Caring Angels.
On May 6, 2007, Debbie was united in marriage to Robert Bell and they shared many wonderful years together. She was truly a great friend and mentor to many, always giving of herself with encouraging words, advice, and selfless deeds. Debbie enjoyed doing her Watchtowers, going to the Kingdom Hall, reading, shopping, decorating her home, hosting family gatherings, spending time with her children and grandchildren, and her dogs, “Moot Moot” and “Tigey.” She loved to talk about Jehovah to her family and everyone she met. Debbie was very thankful when Jehovah brought her through cancer victoriously and was grateful being sponsored for the last several years in Honolulu, Hawaii with the Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure Foundation, “Team Watson.”
Debbie leaves to cherish her fond memories and love: her husband, Robert Bell of Temperanceville, VA; four children, Brittany (Larry) Parham of Chesapeake, VA, Kareem Watson of Hampton, VA, Marcus (Angel) Watson of Salisbury, MD, and Travis Watson of Honolulu, HI; four grandchildren that she loved and adored, Chloe Parham, Elijah Parham, Koah Watson, and Zechariah Watson; her mother, Edith Watson of Temperanceville, VA; three stepchildren, Bobby Evans, Dorcas Bell, and Nathan (Sherell) Bell; three sisters, Brenda (LaRonn) Smith, Cherie (Nelson) Ridley, both of Parksley, VA, and Jewel (Alan) Miller of Waldorf, MD; three brothers, Richard Watson, Jr. of Raleigh, NC, Larry Watson of Fayetteville, NC, and Mervin Watson of Westover, MD; three brothers-in-law, Charles (Kathy) Bell of Fruitland, MD, Joseph Bell of Oklahoma City, OK; and Donald (Angie) Bell of Marion, MD; and three sisters-in-law, Dorothy (Preston) Hut, Darlene Bell, and Doreen Bell, all of Marion, MD. Debbie had many special friends, godchildren, nieces, nephews, aunt, uncle, and cousins whom she loved dearly.
Words can’t express how much our rock, love, heart, and victorious warrior will be missed, but we find comfort in knowing Debbie is resting with Jehovah.
