It is with the deepest regret that the Watson family announces the death of their beloved wife and mother, Penelope Sarah Watson (June 6, 1944 - September 9, 2020). A graduate of the Witwatersrand University's School for Library Science, Penelope served in the Namibian Government's public library service, opening libraries in the 10 years after independence in places as far afield as Katima Mulilo, Omuthiya, and Rosh Pinah. She delighted in sharing her great love of books and reading, and will be sorely missed. Her family was blessed to have her in their lives.

There will be no memorial service due to the COVID-19 restrictions.

And I saw the dead, great and small, standing before the throne, and books were opened. . . . (Revelation 20:12, ESV)
