Marian Watt Obituary

Marian A. “Betz” Eichenlaub Watt, 85, of Ashville, passed away Tuesday September 19, 2023, at UPMC Passavant Hospital, Pittsburgh, surrounded by her loving husband, children, and family members. Marian was born March 27, 1938, at home in Elstie, daughter of the late Walter Sr. And Thelma (LaRue) Eichenlaub. She was preceded in death by her grandchildren: Jessica, Jennifer, Tiffany and Jason Edwards, sister, Barbara (Eichenlaub) Wagner, and daughter-in-law Jeanine (Stevens) Watt. Survived by her husband of almost 66 years, Chuck Watt Sr., whom she married November 30, 1957 in Coupon, children: Chuck Jr., Kathleen “Kitty” (Joe) Edwards, Kevin (Lisa Sollenberger), Tammy (Steve) Caracciolo, Lu Ann (Dave) Ulicne, Tim (Betty Yeater), Michelle (Michael) Zenone, and Ben (Lynn Behe), 24 grandchildren, 8 step grandchildren, and 19 great grandchildren, siblings: Wayne (Judy Piper), Pete (Janet Judd), Jean (Jimmy) Sherwood, Ruth ( BJ, deceased) Hamby, Gerri (Bruce) Kolesar, Deb Eichenlaub (Louis Taber), brother-in-law, Ray “Pete” Wagner, and numerous nieces and nephews. Marian’s ultimate joy was her grandchildren and great grandchildren, and she absolutely loved babies. She was an avid sportswoman who enjoyed hunting and fishing. She also enjoyed playing bingo, woodworking, animals, and she loved to gamble. Marian had a very strong personality, but could be the kindest, most giving person. The most exciting event of the year for her was the American Legion (Cambria) County Fair and watching her grandchildren show their 4-H animals. She looked forward to spending her winters in Florida with her husband. Marian was fondly known as “Boss Hog” by her siblings, but her children just called her ”Mom”. She was a member of St. Monica Catholic Church, Chest Springs, where a funeral Mass will be celebrated at 11:00 AM Saturday, Rev. Robert Reese, Celebrant. Committal, St. Monica Cemetery. A private viewing will be held at the convenience of the family. In lieu of flowers, the family suggests donations be made to the Make a Wish Foundation or St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital in Marian’s memory. Arrangements in charge of Gibbons Funeral Home, 1688 Liberty St., Ashville, PA 16613.
