Clara was a graduate of Hokes Bluff High School. She retired from Fred Allen’s Florist after 20 years and later owned the Wedding Shop in Hokes Bluff. She was a member of New Hope Baptist Church. She adored her family and grandchildren. She enjoyed cooking, gardening, spending time with her family and listening to gospel music.
Clara was a kind and loving wife, mother, sister, and Nana who was adored by her family. She was loved by all who knew her. She had a gentle spirit who faced her medical challenges with strength and courage. Although we will miss her greatly, we know that she is celebrating with Jerry in Heaven and we know we will see her again.
She is preceded in death by her husband of 39 years Jerry Watkins; parents: Ross and Dorothy Green; sister: Shirley Grace.
She is lovingly remembered by her children: Greg (Letitia) Watkins, Todd Watkins (Michele Downey) and Christi (Bob) Hurd; grandchildren: Lauren Watkins (Jace Fry), Matthew (Leighton) Watkins, Kayleigh Watkins, Abby Watkins, Robert (Carrie) Hurd, and Katrina Hurd; great grandson: Hayden Fry; sisters: Patricia “Pat” Green, June Holcomb; several nieces and nephews and special family Don and Gloria Guthrie.
