Inus Caudill Watts, 87, a loving daughter, wife, mother, grandmother, great grandmother, sister, and friend to
all, died peacefully at Pikeville Methodist Hospital on December 12, 2005 with her children, a grandson and
friends, David and Opal Jent, gathered by her bedside.
She was born on February 4, 1918 to Jepp and Eva Caudill. She married Fred Watts on June 26, 1936. This
union was blessed with four daughters and four sons. Inus was preceded in death by her husband, her parents
and a son, Billy Dean. She is survived by daughters, Viola Watts and Doris Watts of Hallie, Kentucky, Naomi
Sturgill of Whitesburg, Kentucky,and Kaye Parker of Blackey, Kentucky and three sons, Shelby Watts and
Robert Watts of Hallie, Kentucky and Marty Watts of Premium, Kentucky. Also surviving are six grandchildren,
five great grandchildren and three sisters, Lois Blair, Recie Haynes, and Gaythiel Clark.
During the last months of her illness, Inus was bedridden and was lovingly cared for by her children. What a
pleasure her children received as they witnessed her show of faith that shone through her smiling face.
Inus was a member of Cedar Grove Old Regular Baptist Church, but her citizenship was in Heaven. Heaven
was waiting with outstretched arms to receive her while her Lord and Savior said to her, “Well done thou good
and faithful servant, enter in.”
We will miss her smiling face and great cooking as we continue to gather around her table, but we know
another flower has been added to His bouquet.
