She said she grew up in Mineral Wells, mostly in Dr. Yeager's office, where her mother, Lois Kincaid – a Perrin native – worked. She added that her father, Eugene Kincaid – a Whitt native – was a night-shift helicopter pilot supervisor at Fort Wolters for Southern Airways.
At home in her grandparent's Perrin homestead, she now enjoys gardening, remodeling, “fixin to plant an orchard” and her rescued dogs, Flemish giant rabbit, Begal cat, goat, named Lila, and her three granddaughters' three horses.
“Of course I'm retiring early, I could work several more years. But, I want to be with the grandkids and gardening and horses and all that … I already have my onions planted,” she said.
Watson noted that her granddaughters Megan and Katie Watson moved to the Bryan-College Station area last summer and now she will have more free time to visit them.
“But this has been a wonderful career; I've met so many people,” she said. “It's just been unbelievable the people I do know.”
She said her adjustment has been hard and she wants to continue to be a part of the Index and advertising. Work with the North Texas Star “keeps me out in the public and being able to be a small part,” she said, adding that she will be able to call on customers from Granbury, Weatherford, Graham and make new customers in places, like Jacksboro, where she has already pounded the pavement.
