Leora Maxine Watts

Place of birth: Rockwell City, Iowa

Religious affiliation: Protestant

Leora was born and raised in Rockwell City, Iowa, and moved with her family to Waldron, Arkansas when she was a teenager. She met her future Husband, Ralph Edmond Watts, Sr., and was married in Waldron. She was a wonderful mother, grandmother, and great grandmother who lived through the Great Depression and survived to grow up and raise two sons, Ralph Edmond Watts, Jr. and Ronald Franklin Watts. She was always chatty, cheerful, and loved to play games, especially card games, but she was up for just about anything. She would share everything she had with her friends and neighbors. When she was short for cash she would still give away all that she could to anyone who needed it. She worked at the Waldron Flower Shop, then was a part time reporter for the Waldron newspaper, and became a dental assistant to Dr. Joe Luther for a number of years. Later she went to work for the Waldron Telephone company where her career continued until her retirement. Leora was preceded in death by her husband, Ralph (known as Uncle Ralph to the townspeople) Edmond Watts, Sr., and is survived by her two sons, Ralph Jr. and Ronald, grandchildren Kyra Bradley, Teala Watts, and Tylan Watts, and numerous great grandchildren. A loving mother, she will be missed deeply by those she touched in her long life.
