   Sue was born on February 15, 1948 in Evansville, IN to Phillip and Ruth (Willis) Wyrick. She graduated from North High School in Evansville on June 8, 1966. Sue and her husband were successful business owners of Watson Oil Company.

Her hobbies and interests included volunteering as an election judge, and as a member of the Henning Civic Club. Sue was an active member of Living Water Apostolic Church, where she also volunteered as a Sunday School teacher. She enjoyed gardening and baking, as well as never missing an athletic event of her grandchildren’s.

   Sue married Kenneth L. Watson on September 27, 1973 in Henning, Illinois and the two have shared forty-eight years together. She leaves behind her husband; three children: Amy (Dave) Seitz of Bristow, VA, Kelly Hammond of Mahomet, IL, and Kim Kruger of Danville, IL; seven grandchildren; two brothers: Phillip (Donna) Wyrick of Evansville, IN and Randall (Janet) Wyrick of Merrill, WI; and several nieces and nephews.
