Cynthia Joyce Watkins was born on Aug. 2, 1964, in Prentiss, to Cecil and Brenda Martin Gamble.  A graduate of Prentiss High School, Cindy chose the field of medical care and earned her degree in Registered Nursing from Pearl River Community College.  For the largest part of her career, she served as a travel nurse over the Southwestern region of the United States, specializing in critical care.  On Memorial Day, 1990, Cindy met the love of her life, Joe, and they spent many happy years together.  Cindy adored her family and received a great deal of joy getting everyone together as often as she could. These special times will be remembered for the love and laughter shared among each one, as well as the great meals Cindy prepared, especially her creole dishes.  Her family remarks that as much as she loved her three girls, she was overjoyed with the addition of her three grandsons and that she was proud to be a “Nana”.  She was loved by all who knew her and will be missed greatly.  Cindy was of the Baptist faith.
Cindy was preceded in death by her parents, Cecil and Brenda Gamble.
Her memory will forever be cherished by her three daughters, Laura Davis of New Jersey, Jessica Honea (Zac) of Carson, JoAnna Watkins of Browns Mills, New Jersey; her step-son, Justin Watkins (Aaron) of Lebanon Lake, New Jersey and her brother, Tony Gamble (Rhonda) of Hattiesburg.  The legacy of their Nana will also live on through her three grandchildren; Robert Buckley, Davis Honea, Dax Honea and four step-grandchildren; Justin Wozniak Jr., Karra Wozniak, Jake Wozniak and Kamryn Wozniak.
