Mary Rose Watkins

Mary Rose Druart Watkins, 99, died peacefully surrounded by her family on October 4, 2018.  Funeral services will be held on Monday, October 7 at Westkirk Presbyterian Church.  Visitation with the family will begin 10 a.m followed by services at 11 a.m.

 

Mary was born in Frontenac, Kansas on September 9, 1919.  She was born to Italian immigrants, orphaned at 12 months and lovingly adopted by Emil and Victoria Druart.  In 1950 she met and later married Carl J. Watkins.  Six year later they moved to Des Moines and called it home ever since.

 

Mary was a founding member of Westkirk Presbyterian Church where she served as an elder for many years.  She enjoyed art, music, but most of all she loved spending time with her family.  She is survived in by her daughter Sandy (Jed) Willoughby of Clive, granddaughter Tory (Joe) Sampson of Johnston, grandson Ben (Jamie) Willoughby of Dallas, TX and great grandchildren Emery and Bode Sampson.  She was preceded in death by her husband Carl, brother Art Druart and sister Ann Cassidy.
