Obituary

Kimberly Duncan Watts, 59, of Endwell, New York passed away peacefully surrounded by her loving family at Our Lady of Lourdes Hospital in Binghamton, NY in the early morning hours of Sunday, December 3rd, 2017. She was predeceased by her mother, Carol Duncan, in December of 2016. She was also predeceased by her mother-in-law, Florence J. Watts in 2008, and a brother-in-law, Carl E. Watts in 2010. Kim is survived by her loving and devoted husband, Brooks M. Watts, who never left her side in the final stages of her heroic battle. Kim is also survived by five children: Rachel (Caron) Egan-Hill, of Endicott, NY; Katherine Egan, also of Endicott; Mary (Christopher) Wolleon, of Bonita Springs, FL; John Watts, of Bethesda, MD; and Anthony Watts, of Fort Drum, NY. She is also survived by her adoring father, Robert Duncan, of Endwell; her sisters and brothers: Cindy (Virgil) Pund, of Illinois; Kyle (Suzanne) Duncan, of Rochester, NY; Michael (Deborah) Duncan, of Endwell; Melissa (Alex) Becker, of Minnesota; and David Duncan, of Endwell; and brothers and sisters-in-law: John (Linda) Watts and Robert (Sandra) Watts, all of Endicott, NY. Kim’s greatest joy in life was being a loving Nana to her ten grandchildren. Kim leaves behind many other very special nieces and nephews, and family and friends, including her former sister-in-law, Stacey Crescente Duncan, Shirley Anne Kunkle, Debi Sbarra, Kathy Haight Hodgeman, Virginia Watts-Smith, and Erin O’Connor. Kim was a lifelong member of Northminster Presbyterian Church in Endwell, where she formerly served as a deacon and volunteered in the food pantry. Kim also enjoyed volunteering with Meals on Wheels with her mother in years past. She was a very kind, caring, compassionate, and loyal person that offered friendship to many in need. For many years Kim enjoyed working for her family’s business prior to venturing into her own true passion of painting and interior decorating. Kim was strongly family-oriented, delighting in cooking for her family, and for many years seriously pursued genealogical research. Kim was honored to speak several times in front of Broome Community College students as part of a Death and Dying class, leaving an impression on many.
Funeral Services be held Thursday at 11 am at the Allen Memorial Home, 511-513 East Main Street, Endicott. The family will receive friends at the Allen Memorial Home Wednesday from 4-7 pm. Expressions of sympathy in Kim’s memory may be made to the American Red Cross, whose programs supporting military families helped tremendously in easing Kim’s and her family’s worries in her final days. 620 East Main Street, Endicott, NY 13760

My hearts goes out to Kim's family at this time of loss. Losing someone you love is never easy. May you be comforted in knowing that now she is asleep in God's memory with the prospect of returning to life at a time when all causes of suffering, sickness, pain, and even death are all things of the past. (John 5:28,29 / Revelation 21:3,4) Hold on to all your happy memories and let them warm your hearts along with all the promises of God.

I'm not really sure what to say here. I've know Kim for decades and I know she was a kind, thoughtful, loyal person to her family, husband and friends. God broke the mold and then some when he created this amazing woman. Now, he's summoned her to come home. Guess he has his own reasons. I am very happy that we (my wife Cheri and I) got to see Kim back in August of this year; a moment in time that we will never ever forget. I guess the most admirable thing about Kim that strikes me is her determination to carry-on and survive; her commitment to life. I've never heard of such tenacity and vigor from a human being that had overcome so many obstacles and challenges that were a daily encounter. She was relentless in fighting back and winning the battle. I can't imagine the pain and suffering she endured for the last several years, she never gave in or gave up. Something she taught us and we are forever grateful. We will remember her always in our hearts and prayers Tony and Cheri LaMonica Derry, NH

To my sister. How do I begin to thank you for 48 years of unconditional love and friendship? We laughed and cried together and you were always there to be my rock. Shirley and I will continue knowing that you are with us in our hearts. You have left a beautiful legacy. Sleep tight, my friend.......

Katie and my daughter met in kindergarten. We became friends through our daughters, and my two children and her two children all became close friends. I knew Kim's parents, her in-town family and she knew mine, and I also worked at the Visions building just down the hall from Reagan-Compar. I always took my work break at Kim's office so we saw each other, pretty much, on a daily basis. When I think of her I remember her infectious laugh, her smile, her dedication to her family, and her amazing generosity. To Brooks, Rachel, Katie and the rest of the Watts family, I wish you comfort while you are grieving your loss of this lovely woman. Sending our love your way, Jodi, Michael, Ryan and Rachel
