Sharon Rose (Walsh) Watson of Booth Bay Harbor, Maine (Gibbstown, N.J.), died peacefully in her sleep on Thursday, May 5, 2016 (Feast of the Ascension). She was 78.

She was the beloved wife of Donald Robert Watson Jr. for 60 years. Sharon was the proud mother of eight children, Sharon Max (David), Donald III, Bernadette Scopa (Robert), Paul (Christine), Rosemary Coleman (Tom), John (Lynne), Michael, and Jennifer Mullen (Richard), and the very proud grandmother of 18 grandchildren and three great grandchildren.

She was preceded in death by her angel: her grandson, Thomas Scopa.

Sharon loved spending time with her husband, Don, at their home in Maine. She also loved the outdoors and was an avid dog-lover and cherished her Akitas, Shima and Shane. She was an accomplished musician and had a great love of books and movies.

Sharon was a former elementary school teacher for Saint Cecilia's of Pennsauken, St. Peter's of Merchantville, St. Rose in Haddon Heights and Veterans Memorial School in Camden.

She was intensely proud of her Irish heritage and a dear friend of Monsignor Michael Doyle of Sacred Heart Parish in Camden, and the former Monsignor Richard Callahan of St. Rose of Lima, Haddon Heights and St. Cecilia, Pennsauken parishes.

Sharon was a summa cum laude graduate of Rutgers University, where she earned a Bachelor of Arts degree in English. She was also a proud graduate of Camden Catholic High School, where she played the lead role in her high school play as Mrs. Sally Adams in 'Call me Madam,' which is where she met her soulmate, Don.
