Jessie was a lovely, bubbly person who loved life. Quite how she did what she did till her early 90s, I haven't a clue.

This grove represents Jessie Calder Barnett nee Watson's life and legacy. She valued her Scottish heritage and was passionately dedicated to her extended family and friends. She loved the Watson clan- her 9 siblings and all their off spring, always celebrating their achievements. A Tree for Life Grove is an appropriate tribute to this bond as the founder is her nephew, her brother George's son. Jessie leaves behind 2 sons, three granddaughters, 3 great grandsons and 5 great granddaughters. Each had a unique relationship with her and each value the enormous contribution she made to their life and development. She will be sadly missed but has left many happy memories.
