Mildred Beatrice Watkins

Mildred Beatrice Watkins was born to the late Napoleon and Willie Bell Dunn on July 5, 1921, in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. She transitioned on September 9, 2021, at the age of 100. She was educated in the Metropolitan Nashville Public Schools where she was skipped several times to accelerated classes because of her high I.Q. Mildred had a life-long passion for learning, was an avid reader, and spent her last years writing her thoughts and recording hundreds of bible verses. She had a sharp memory and a knack for remembering names. Once she met you, she never forgot your name or confused you with anyone else. She also loved to cook and was a connoisseur of good food. She was loved by all who knew her. Mrs. Mildred was quite an inspiration. Mrs. Mildred was preceded in death by her husband, James G. Watkins, Sr., her son, Michael Watkins, and her siblings. She is survived by her daughter, Jacqueline Watkins; son, James G. (Reva) Watkins, Jr.; grandchildren, Darin Gassaway; Adriane (Eric) Robinson; Demetria Watkins Hatcher; Marsha (Jonathan) Johnson; Mark Watkins; James Gordon Watkins; sisters-in-law, Katherine Green and Rae Watkins; 7 great-grandchildren, and a host of nieces, nephews, cousins, extended family, and friends. Graveside Friday, September 24, 2021, 12noon at Greenwood Cemetery
