Watoma Wilkins, a truly remarkable soul who touched the lives of all who knew her. With a heart full of selfless love and an unwavering devotion to making the world a better and happier place, Watoma was truly the kindest person you could ever hope to meet.

Born on March 26, 1968, in the beautiful city of Redding, California, Watoma was destined to leave an indelible mark on those around her. From an early age, she embraced the joys of exploration and travel. All our travels and adventures were made even more memorable by Watoma's infectious excitement as she captured every moment with her camera, ensuring that we could forever cherish those precious memories. She had a particular fondness for visiting lakes and waterfalls, finding solace in the tranquil beauty of nature.

Watoma possessed a creative spirit that found expression in various forms. Writing was one of her many passions; she had an innate ability to weave words together in a way that touched the hearts of all who read her work. Her art and crafts were filled with intricate details that showcased her unique perspective on life. It was through these creative outlets that Watoma found solace and joy.

But perhaps above all else, Watoma's greatest source of happiness came from nurturing her loved ones. She reveled in raising her pups as if they were her own children, pouring endless love and care into their well-being. In the quiet moments, she found deep fulfillment in the presence of her family, cherishing each gathering and creating memories that would last a lifetime. The phone calls from her brother James Hammers brought immeasurable delight into her life, reminding her of the importance of connection.

Watoma's proudest accomplishments came from being a mother and grandmother. Raising two beautiful daughters named Oletha and Cera was both challenging and rewarding for Watoma, as she poured her love into nurturing them to become exceptional individuals. But it was her role as a grandmother that truly brought her unparalleled joy. Taking on the responsibility of raising her granddaughters, Kaelyne and Michelle, Watoma left an indelible mark on their lives, guiding them with unwavering love and support.

Surrounded by love, Watoma passed away peacefully at her home in White City on November 11, 2023. She leaves behind a legacy of kindness, compassion, and unwavering love that will continue to inspire all who were fortunate enough to have known her.

Watoma is survived by her loving husband, Darrell Wilkins, who stood by her side through thick and thin. Her daughters Oletha and Cera will carry forward her legacy of love and compassion. Additionally, she leaves behind a host of grandchildren whom she adored with all her heart, including Kaelyne and Michelle, the two she raised as her own.

As we say farewell to Watoma today, let us remember the beauty she brought into our lives. Let us honor her by continuing to spread love, kindness, and selflessness to those around us. We will forever cherish the memories we shared with Watoma Wilkins – a woman whose presence graced this earth with boundless warmth and tenderness. May she find eternal peace in the embrace of the heavens above.
