The couple moved to Germany, where Gene was stationed with the Air Force. While in Germany, Mrs. Watts was able to tour Europe and gave birth to her first child, Martha. The Watts soon returned, and settled, in Gainesville where their second daughter, Mary, was born. Together, Maurine and Gene operated Watts Bros. Pharmacy and Watts Prescription Shop. Mrs. Watts loved animals, caring for many cats and dogs throughout her life.
