Ginger Watson, 60 of Tifton passed away Saturday, October 29, 2022 at her residence. Ginger was born March 11, 1962 in Reynolds, Ga. Mama loved nothing more in life than her kids and grandkids. Better known as their GG or Granny G. They kept her on her toes and kept her going for many of years and it was very much known just how much she loved them and did not play the radio about those babies. She loved her dog Boozer as her own son. They went on many adventures together. She has always had such a wild spirited hippie soul and personality. She loved her gardens and flowers, moons and stars, and most importantly her fairies and jewelry. You would never catch her without Mitch Match earrings on, multiple necklaces and bracelets, and a ring on almost every finger. Mama stayed home all day ordering off the JTV shows. That was her happy place that helped pass time and no matter how many times we told her to stop, she just cut it off until we left. Before getting sick you couldn’t keep my mama out of the river on the weekends mostly the Flint River, and she loved fishing. Mama has been hardheaded her whole life I guess that’s where we got it from. If you ever seen her, I promise you she had her Colt 45 and her cigarettes or her “smoker thing” as she woud call her vape. She’s told us for a while when God was ready for her she would be ready because she is at peace. We miss her unconditionally, but God needed her more than what we did at this time. Mama we will see you again, please watch over us.

I love you to the moon and back, up past the stars back down to the oceans, more than all the catfishes there are. To infinity and beyond, forever and ever my sunshine.
Love your kids & grandkids
