Kellie was born in Seattle on Dec.12, 1965. She graduated from Mountlake Terrace High School in 1984 and continued on to receive a Bachelor of Science degree from Central Washington University.
After losing her husband in August of 2012, her family and friends were more important to her than ever. She was passionate about helping others, especially the four-legged ones. For Kellie’s birthday last year she wanted to complete 12 acts of kindness; one of those included collecting donations for Lady’s Hope Dog Rescue. She thought of others while fighting the battle of her life. Kellie was courageous, self-less and inspirational.
Kellie was predeceased by the love of her life, Michael E. Watson; her father, Michael W. Barker; her sister Tracy Barker; and her pets, Astro and Freddie.
Kellie is survived by her daughters, Kayla (22) and Kelsey (18); mom and step-dad, Shirley & Neal Milner; grandmother, Kathleen M. Haberkorn; siblings Robert Milner, Karrie Hatton and Lisa Schafer; many aunts, uncles, nieces, nephew, cousins, numerous friends, her dog Bam-Bam and grand-dogs Baby and Juda.
Memorials may be made to The Kellie Watson Benevolent Fund at BECU or Lady’s Hope Dog Rescue in Kellie’s name.
The family wishes to thank everyone for their amazing support during this difficult time.
