Jean L. Watson Emerson was welcomed into heaven June 12, 2020 at the age of 87 years and 1 day, with her loving husband of 50 years, C. Floyd Emerson, at her side.

Jean, the daughter of Merrill and Ruth Watson, was born June 11, 1933 in Runville, Pennsylvania. Her hobbies included square dancing as a young girl and recipes and cooking as an adult. Jean was well known for her beaming smile, sweet and vivacious personality and her strong love of family. She served God and her faith in many ways; playing the important role of supportive pastor's wife to Floyd, organizing prayer chains, teaching Sunday School and Vacation Bible School, playing piano for worship and various other leadership roles in the church community.

In addition to Floyd, Jean is survived by her daughter Janet McMaster, son in law Brian and grandson Travis; sister Edith Mackereth; and numerous nieces and nephews. She was preceded in death by her parents; and 6 brothers (Maurice, Albert, Walter, Pete, David and Tom).

Aunt Jean, you have always had a smile and a welcome for those of our family who have ended up so far from home on our journey through life. I especially remember When I was flying home for Dad's funeral (Pete Watson) how you suddenly appeared in the seat next to mine on the flight from Washington State to Pennsylvania. It made the trip much easier not being alone. I will miss you, but you have left a warm and smiling presence on my life that I will cherish always.

Mom was always concerned about others before herself. One of the things that made her so very special.

Jean, your warm and welcoming smile greeted me the first time I met you in 2006 at the church. It was also so warm and welcoming the last time I saw you at The Springs. I am happy for your peace now.

Thank you to Jean for sharing her solid faith and friendship. She invited and inspired me to be involved with CBS (Community Bible Study) and the UCC Women's Fellowship. Her faithfulness and commitment to her passions was always evident. Jean taught me how to make and freeze pies and desserts for all occasions especially surprise company. Blessings to Floyd and the family. May the peace of our LORD be with you. Tedd and Rymmel Lovell

Momma I miss you so much. I couldn’t have had a better or more loving mother. You taught me to be kind, to have manners and show respect, and to treat others the way I want to be treated. We had our share of troubled water but the older I got the smarter you were. My heart is heavy but it also delights in knowing you have a clear mind again and are with loved ones who went before you. Until we can be together again your love will stay with me. I love you.❤️
