Ollye Bell Guess -Watson Life Story
There are a few things that cannot be hidden. (1.) The Bright Sun. (2.) The Full Moon (3.) The Shining Stars (4) The TRUTH.
Ollye Bell Guess -Watson was our family’s shining star. She was born on January 23, 1932 to Theodore Guess and Ida Mae Robins-Guess in Hugo, Choctaw, nation, Oklahoma. She was raised in Hugo until her grandfather, Theodore brought his family to San Diego, California during the late 40’s to obtain better job opportunities. The family resided in the Southeast area, where Ollye received her primary and secondary education. Ollye was blessed with three siblings: Ivory Guess, Queen Esther Guess-Mingo and Angie Guess-Westbrook.
She was blessed by giving birth to three children. Her first child, Ronald James Jones and her second child Olivetta Jones, both fathered by Elijah Jones and her last son was Harold Lee Williams whose father was Willie Williams. She was a loving and caring single mother at that time.
Her life’s path changed when she met and married William Watson. William worked a number of years until he retired from the City of San Diego Sanitation Department. Ollye and William were married for over fifty years. Over the years Ollye worked in the In-Home Support Services for the elderly. She was also a valuable volunteer for her daughter Olivetta Family Childcare business. She will surely be missed by family and friends but will never be forgotten. When you look up at the shining stars at night, remember “Ollye Bell Guess-Watson.”
Ollye Bell Guess-Watson was called home to rest on August 20, 2020 in La Jolla, California. She leaves to cherish her loving memory: her daughter, Olivetta Jones; six grandsons, Anthony D.
