Jill K. Watson, age 52, of Fremont died peacefully among loved ones on Wednesday, July 21 at Dunklau Gardens in Fremont.

Jill was born May 25, 1969 in Fremont to Richard and Marilyn 'Smeal' Nott. She was raised in Cedar Bluffs and North Bend, graduating from North Bend Central High School in 1987. She attended UNL before marrying Brian Watson in September, 1989. After their marriage they lived in Lincoln and Chadron before moving to Fremont. While living in Fremont she worked for Bergan Schools, Fremont Area Medical Center (now Methodist Fremont Health) and for Twin J Enterprises Inc. She was a member of First Lutheran Church in Fremont.

Jill was extremely competitive in cards and board games. Cooking, baking, crafting and photography were all passions of hers.

    My heart is so broken to know Ms Jill have gone home to glory. I met her at Fremont High School basketball games and we also sat together at Midland football games. We are so thankful for her kindness in taking pictures of my son and sharing them with me. She will truly be missed by many. Be encouraged that she is no longer in pain. She's free now to walk around heaven all day long. God Bless and keep you all.
