Obituary

Glendola Watkins Bryant, affectionately known as “Ginny”, loving Mother of Robert E. Bryant, Karen Bryant Freeman, Michael D. Bryant and Kathy Bryant Flynn, went to be with the Lord and Savior Jesus Christ on May 12, 2021.  She was 87 years of age and survived by her Son, Robert E. Bryant and his wife Carol, daughter Karen Freeman and her husband Jay, son Michael Bryant and his wife Bobbi Jo, daughter Kathy Flynn and her husband Danny, 16 grandchildren, 22 great grandchildren, her two brothers John Marsdon Watkins, Vernon (Butch) Watkins and his wife Darlene and numerous nieces and nephews.  She was preceded in death by her husband Robert M. (Bobby) Bryant, Mother, Myrtle Watkins and Father, Vernon E. Watkins Sr.  She was a lifelong resident of Poquoson where she graduated from Poquoson High School and was a member of Trinity United Methodist Church.  She was with Civil Service, both Army and Air Force, for 15 years and a substitute teacher at Poquoson High School for a number of years.  She was the owner and operator of “The Poquoson School of Dance and Baton” and “The Poquoson High Steppers”.  She also owned and operated “Ginny’s Doll Boutique and Doll Hospital” where she was known for many years as “The Doll Lady”.  When her four children introduced her to the computer and purchased the first one she owned, she started several electronic greeting card web sites featuring her poetry for over 20 years.  She authored four published books of poetry which are still in circulation.  She loved creating crafts and enjoyed painting with acrylics which was one of her most enjoyable past times.   However, God and family were the center of her life and gave her much joy and happiness.

 

 

A memorial service, followed by visitation, will be at 2:00 p.m. on May 15 at Claytor Rollins Funeral Home in Poquoson.  Token of sympathy can be sent to The Poquoson Fire and Rescue.  The family will welcome friends at Kathy's home at 138 Cedar Rd., Poquoson VA at 5:00 PM.  Many heartfelt thanks to Dr. James Tinsley and his wife, with Lighthouse Primary Care, for taking such good care of our beloved Mother.
