Mary Hughes Brown Watso, 69

M ary Hughes Brown Watso, 69, of Manning Way, Sand Lake, was born into eternal life on Friday, Dec. 17, 2010, surrounded by her loving family.

Born in Middle Granville, Mary was the daughter of the late Charles and Ella Jones Hughes.

Mary had resided in the Albany area since 1960 and in Sand Lake since 2007. Mary was a graduate of Maria College where she earned her degree as a registered nurse. She had worked at CDPC in Albany for 20 years before retiring in 1998. Mary had a passion for the arts. She had a talent in a variety of visual arts and had the ability to play many instruments, and to play any song by “ear.” She was affiliated with several local musical organizations, and her talents were a gift from God.

Mary’s family wishes to extend their gratitude and thanks to the nurses and staff of 4D at AMCH and the Community Hospice of Rensselaer Co. for the compassionate care of their mom.

Survivors include her daughters, Cynthia (William) LaFleur of Sand Lake and Melissa (Greg)

Mosley of Albany; a sister, Elizabeth (Robert) Noble of South Carolina; her brothers, John C. (Emma) Hughes of Rutland, Vt., and Thomas (Maria) Hughes of Chula Vista, Calif.; and her favorite cousin, Idris Hughes.

Funeral services were held Monday at the Perry-Komdat Funeral Chapel 2691 NY 43 at Glass Lake Averill Park.

An interment service will be held in the spring at the Elmwood Cemetery in Middle Granville.

If desired, donations in memory of Mary Watso may be made to the Arts Center of the Capital Region, 265 River St., Troy, N.Y. 12180 or the Mohawk Hudson River Humane Society, 3 Oakland Ave., Menands, N.Y. 12204.
