Agnes D. Watson, 83, homemaker, city teacher

Agnes D. Watson, a homemaker and retired city elementary school substitute teacher, died of pneumonia Monday at ManorCare Health Services on Falls Road. The West Baltimore resident was 83.

Born Agnes DeElla Maith in Northumberland County, Va., she moved to Baltimore as a child and was a 1940 graduate of Frederick Douglass High School.

After raising her family, she became a substitute teacher at Matthew A. Henson Elementary School at Baker and Payson streets. She also was an election judge.

She belonged to the Helping Hand Club, a group that supported her home church, Lively Hope Baptist in Virginia. She enjoyed reading the Bible, watching soap operas and cooking.

Her husband of 54 years, William "Bob" Watson Sr., a Lever Brothers supervisor, died in 1994.

Services will be held at 11 a.m. today at Payne Memorial African Methodist Episcopal Church, 1714 Madison Ave., where she was a member of the women's guild and the stewardess board.

Survivors include a son, Paul E. Watson of Baltimore; two sisters, Gladys Miller and Lureen Foote of Baltimore; four grandchildren; and two great-grandchildren. Another son, William Watson Jr., died in 1972.
