Marvegine Novella Watt, 87 of East Ridge, went home to be with the Lord on November 17, 2017.
She was a member of the East Ridge Church of Christ. Her family and church family were the most important things to her. She worked for over 40 years at Novacare O & P, where she assisted both in clerical duties as well as fitting of orthotics and prosthetics.
She was preceded in death by the love of her life, her husband, William Alex Watt; parents, Roy S. (Pearl) Bush Sr., two sisters, Gladys L. Bush and Edna Carlton; and one brother, Roy S. Bush, Jr.
Left behind to cherish Marvegine’s memory are her four step-daughters, Mary Ann Cooper, Whitwell, Susan K. Hall, Ringgold, Kathy Alexis Middleton, Blanca, Tx., and Judy Lynn Stewart, Cleveland, Tn., nine step-grandchildren, 18 great-grandchildren, and three great-great-grandchildren; one sister, Inez Scott, Derby, KS., five nieces, six nephews and several great-nieces and nephews, and many great-great nieces and nephews.
A Celebration of Marvegine’s Life will be held in the chapel of Chattanooga Funeral Home on Tuesday, Nov. 21, at 11 a.m. with Min. Charles Cochran officiating. The family will receive friends on Monday Nov. 20, from 5–8 p.m. at the East Chapel. She will be laid to rest with her husband in the Chattanooga National Cemetery.
The family wishes to give special thanks to the love and care shown by Dr. Matt Graham and his staff and The Infusion Center at Erlanger.
In lieu of flowers, the family asks that memorial contribution be sent to her memory to either the Benevolence Room or the Library at East Ridge Church of Christ.
