Meet Our Founder and CEO: Mrs. Idell Watson

Welcome to “WES & I” – I’m so happy you’re here.

My name is Idell Watson – I had many wonderful years of marriage to the love of my life, Wesley J. Watson we were married in 1976. Our years together were filled with fun, travel, hosting & entertaining, family, and friends – all the things I still love to do. To our union we proudly have seven wonderful children, beautiful grand and great grandchildren. I have the world’s greatest mother, one brother, two sisters, and a host of nieces and nephews.

During my junior year at DeVilbiss High School, I became a Candy Striper. This was my first introduction to helping others, a passion that would continue through my life.

Empowering and enabling widows and women through love, support, training and education.
