April 7, 1944   July 20, 2019

Brenda passed away July 20, after a courageous seven-year battle with lung cancer with her loving husband of 56 years by her side.

Brenda was born in Twin Falls on  April 7, 1944, to Robert A. Watson and Alma Joyce Irish Watson.

Brenda attended Lincoln school, and Twin Falls Junior High and Twin Falls High School, Graduating in 1962.   While in high school, Brenda worked at the A&W root beer stand, and the Arctic Circle on Main street, where she made many friends and acquaintances. Including her future husband.

Brenda married Roger Bolton in Elko, Nevada, January 26, 1963.  To this marriage were born two sons, Gregory (Melissa) of Boise, and Jeff (Jolene Gulley) of Chandler, Arizona.

Brenda was always artistic, working for Cosgriff signs, and in 1976 with Dell Timpson starting her own Business, Sign Design. Specializing in hand-painted signs and silk screening.  After Dell’s death in 1998, Brenda sold the business and retired.

Brenda enjoyed skiing, roller-skating, white water rafting, playing golf with her many friends at Jerome Country club, and riding her Harley.  She had to ride her own because she didn’t like the way Roger rode. Brenda and Roger took many trips on their Harleys, and in the winter loved to travel to Mexico, Costa Rica, Jamaica or somewhere warm.  Brenda loved to sew, making many cute outfits for the grandkids, and many beautiful quilts.
