Gisele J. Watts, 86, passed away on Tuesday, February 3,
2015 at Lakeside Nursing and Rehabilitation Center after a lengthy
illness. She was born October 1, 1928 in Briey, France where as a child
she endured the German occupation. At the end of the war she met the love
of her life, Master Sergeant Joseph Watts Jr. They were married for 40

great personal sacrifice. Gisele will be dearly missed. The family would
like to thank the staff of Lakeside for their outstanding care and
compassion for Gisele through the difficult last months of her life. They
