December 22, 2003

Dorothy Elizabeth Watson, a homemaker, died Wednesday of complications from pneumonia at Union Hospital of Cecil County in Elkton. She was 70 and lived in Joppatowne.

Born Dorothy Arigo in Northeast Baltimore, she attended parochial schools and married Ronald E. Watson in 1955.

The couple had two children and Mrs. Watson was a steady influence in their lives, a family member said. Mr. Watson, an engineering technician, died in 1990. Their son, Ronald D. Watson, died of asthma in 1964.

While living in Joppatowne, Mrs. Watson was active in the Edgewood Senior Center. She enjoyed making baskets and stained-glass items, which she presented to friends as gifts. She also attended flea markets and yard sales in Harford and Baltimore counties.

A memorial service will be held at 10 a.m. today at McComas Funeral Home, 1317 Cokesbury Road in Abingdon.

Survivors include a daughter, Ronda L. Kamahele of Elkton; and two brothers, Anthony J. Arigo of Mansfield, Mass., and Charles E. Arigo of Abingdon.
