August 18, 1938 - October 11, 2023
Dolores Ann (Bruno) Watson, age 85, of Newark, DE, passed away peacefully on Wednesday, October 11, 2023.
Born in Chester, PA on August 18, 1938, she was a daughter of the late Louis A. and Ann Dolores (Fiazza) Bruno. After graduating from Chester High School, Dolores began her long and successful professional career at the Scott Paper Company. She lived and worked most of her life in Wilmington and Newark, where she worked as an executive assistant at the University of Delaware. After retiring from the University, she then worked for the JP Morgan Chase & Co., retiring in 2004.
Dolores enjoyed rooting on her grandkid’s sports teams, her Phillies, and trips to the Shore. Her most cherished roles were as a mother and grandmother to her children and grandchildren, always providing fun, nurturing, encouragement, support, and endless love. Her singing, cooking, baking, and little surprises will always be cherished memories for her family and friends. She will be remembered by all for her generous hospitality and giving spirit and will be missed for her kindness and presence in our lives.
Dolores will be profoundly missed by her children, Keith Watson (Wen Chao) of Moorestown, NJ and Valerie Ann (Watson) Sheets (Craig) of Wilmington; grandchildren, Alexis Watson of Moorestown, NJ, Joseph Sheets, Natalie Sheets, and Eric Sheets all of Wilmington; sisters, Connie (Bruno) Hubert of Wilmington and Marianne (Bruno) Ambler of Newark; and her beloved nieces, nephews, friends, and relatives.
A graveside service will be held at 1 pm on Friday, October 20, 2023, in All Saints Cemetery, 6001 Kirkwood Highway, Wilmington, DE.
