Letha Watson - Portage, Letha Watson was a very quiet person who kept to herself. This was not to say she wasn't a loving person, she just enjoyed being home and doing everything related to being a homemaker. Letha Watson died Wednesday, April 24, 2002 at Kairos Dwelling. Letha was born July 21, 1917 in Kalamazoo, the daughter of Benjamin and Mary (Yackley) Auckerman, and has spent her entire life here. In 1940, she met a young gent named Leon Watson. Letha played hard to get but Leon was both persistent and patient. Those two attributes paid off the following year and they were married July 28, 1941. Soon after that they began their family and had a daughter Elizabeth. While Leon was the active and outgoing one, Letha preferred to be at home. She did however, drive a bus for the Kalamazoo Association for Retarded Children for three years. At home, she enjoyed bird watching in her backyard, and especially loved to feed and watch the hummingbirds that seemed to know Letha would always have fresh food for them. Later in life when Leon and Letha built a cottage in Kalkaska, Letha would spend some time there, but she really preferred being in Kalamazoo. It was at her home that she canned the many wonderful vegetables from the garden that Leon tended. They also enjoyed canning jams and jellies. Her granddaughter recalls that Letha made the best salmon patties, both bean and pea soups, as well as lemon meringue pie, all from scratch. Most of the time with-out any exact measurement of the ingredients. She just seemed to know how much of the right things to use to make them taste like no other. After Leon retired, Letha really enjoyed going to Russ' Restaurant for their soup. When her sweet tooth got the best of her, she always enjoyed a trip to Bill Knapps for one of their scrump-tious hot fudge sundaes. In addition to her daughter, Elizabeth Springer and her husband, Jerry of Portage, other members of her family include her grand-daughters, Barbara Uildriks and Beverly Springer; and her great-grandchildren, Brandon, Justin and Chelsea Uildriks. Friends may call Sunday from 2 to 5 p.m. at the Rupert, Durham, Marshall & Gren Funeral Home, Portage Chapel, where a Celebration of Life Service will be held Monday at 11 a.m. Letha will be placed in the mausoleum at Mt. Ever-Rest Cemetery next to her husband.
