Obituary of Jane Boyd Watson

Jane was born in March of 1941 in Hillsboro, TX to Louie and Lellene Marshall. She graduated from Hillsboro High School and attended the University of Texas at Austin. While at UT, she majored in Home Economics and was a member of Zeta Tau Alpha.  She met her first husband, Terry Boyd, on a blind date. She and Terry resided in Hillsboro for the first 13 years of their married life, where their two children, Amy and Marshall were born.

The family moved to Fort Worth in the mid-70s, and shortly thereafter, Jane began a career as a residential realtor, which she continued for over 20 years. After Terry’s death in 2003, Jane retired from Williams-Trew Real Estate Services and later married Robert Watson. 

Jane departed this life on Thursday, April 11, 2019.  She will be remembered for fiercely loving her family and being a loyal and loving friend. The family would like to express their appreciation to the wonderful staff in the Memory Support and Skilled Nursing Units at the Stayton and the caregivers at Vitas Hospice.
