Brittney Watson

December 9, 1986 ~ November 27, 2021 (age 34)


On Saturday, November 27, 2021, Brittney Nichole Watson passed away at the age of 34 in Amarillo, TX. Brittney was born on December 9, 1986, to loving parents Eric Watson and Shinnette Gilbreath of Amarillo, TX. She graduated from Palo Duro High School in 2005 and went on to graduate from the Vocational Nursing program at Amarillo College in 2014. An overall caring person, she loved working as a private duty nurse and bonding with her clients. She was also continuing her education to become a Registered Nurse at the time of her untimely death. 

Brittney is survived by her spouse and best friend of 14 years, Zachary Lamar Marquez, of Amarillo, TX; their baby, Za’kari Nichole Marquez precedes her in death. She leaves to cherish her memory, three beautiful daughters; Bri’aijah Nichole Watson, Bri’aunte Nichole Watson, and Zaylee Nichole Marquez. Her daughters would tell you that their mom loved to cook up a storm, get down at bingo, and just spend time with family. Brittney was someone everyone could count on and call up when they needed anything. She was also always one to say what was on her mind and crack jokes. 

She leaves behind brothers Treyson White, of Dallas, TX, and Julian Watson, of Amarillo, TX; grandparents Danny Brown and Doris Johnson, of Amarillo, TX; paternal grandmother Zona Watson, of Arlington, TX; great grandmother Gracie Asberry, of Amarillo, TX; her lifelong friend Ashleigh Hinton, of Amarillo, TX; and a large extended family of loving uncles, aunts, and in-laws. She is preceded in death by great grandfather Willie Asberry, of Amarillo, TX; paternal grandfather David Mitchell, of Amarillo, TX; and maternal grandfather Jerry Jennings, of Amarillo, TX. 

Brittney’s radiant love and smile will be sorely missed, but her memory will live on forever in many hearts
