Beryl Etta Watts, 89, of Melbourne, Florida, passed away July 8, 2020. She was born on March 1, 1931 in New York City, New York to the late George H. & Beryl Monica (Leslie) West. Beryl fully lived her life! She excelled in contrasting careers, from her position as an Administrative Law Judge to Clothing Design. Her ceaseless energy carried her from sewing, to gourmet cooking, to 80 years of competitive tennis! Truly a renaissance woman, Beryl has been a great inspiration and will be greatly missed. She was preceded in death by her dear husband, Samuel Wade Watts, Jr., an original Tuskegee Airman; and, is survived by her loving son, Wade B. Watts, of Bellevue, Nebraska.
