Mrs. Sarah Cleopatra (Busu) Watkins Cisco
Sunset……September 23, 2018

“When time shall come for my leaving, and I have to bid you all good bye, don’t spend your money on flowers, JUST A ROSE will do.” With words from her favorite song, it is with heavy hearts that we announce the sad home going of our PILLAR; Mrs. Sarah Cleopatra Watkins Cisco. She said her final goodbyes, sang some of her favorite songs, and sent her love to everyone before taking her last breath on the afternoon of September 23, 2018 at the University Hospital, Newark, New Jersey. No pain could stop her from having fun with family and friends, that’s why, ONE more day, one more month, one more year, would have been enjoyed by her. God called and said, Busu, your work on earth is complete. Interestingly, she responded and said, yes Lord, I am ready for my next assignment.

She leaves to mourn and cherish her memory; sisters, Dolly Watkins Ketter and Gladys Watkins, 1 sister-in-law, Martha Watkins, nieces and nephews; Wanda Gibson Bropleh, Sarah Kasie Bailey, Cleopatra Joe (Sam), Monalisa Genece (Evens), Rose Zologan (Michael), Precious Watkins, Mary Smith Zarzar, Richard Watkins (Yassah), Lorenzo Watkins, Justin Ketter, and Cynthia Morris. Grand nieces and nephews, 1 great grand-niece and 1 great grand-nephew, host of relatives and friends, including her best friend, Mrs. Wanita Saye.
