Watts, Beverly J. (Lawson) of Chatham on October 21, 2018 at age 84.
Beloved wife of Dave Watts and devoted mother to three sons, Bev grew up in Braintree MA and attended Thayer Academy and Connecticut College for Women, where she studied psychology. She met her future husband Dave while working summers on Nantucket. Soon after marriage, she and Dave settled in Westwood MA to raise their three sons. There, she sang with the Dedham Choral group, volunteered at Norwood Hospital and the Islington Nursery School, and was an active member of the St. John’s Church community. Bev and Dave’s retirement years were split between St. Croix and Chatham. She loved the beaches and fine dining of both St. Croix and Chatham. In Chatham, Bev was an active parishioner of St. Christopher’s Church and member of the Chatham Beach and Tennis Club. While on the Cape, she volunteered at the Review Board of DSS Cape Cod. Bev loved socializing with her family and friends, playing bridge, singing, playing tennis at the Club, fine dining, and her scotch (no water!). She also enjoyed her solitary time listening to classical music, doing sudoku and crossword puzzles, and reading James Patterson novels.
Bev is survived by her husband of 62 years Dave Watts of Chatham; her sons Brad and his wife Regina Watts of Wellesley, Pete and his wife Kathy Watts of Chatham, and Geoff and his partner Amy Moran of Wellesley. Also, six grandchildren: Matt, Billy, Elizabeth, Daniel, Ashely, and Angela.
A memorial service celebrating Bev’s life will be held at 11:00 AM on November 3, 2018 at St. Christopher’s Church with a reception to follow.
