Betty Jo Daugherty, 82, of Xenia, passed away peacefully Sunday, June 10 following a heroic battle against dementia. She was born in Jacksboro on Aug. 14, 1935 to Clyde and Ruth (Shown) Lindsay, who preceded her in death. On Dec. 24, 1954, she married the love of her life, Ernest Daugherty. They were married 32 plus years until his death in 1987.
Jo retired from Hooven & Allison in Xenia, Ohio after many years of service. She loved to read, crochet, knit, keep her grandkids, and travel with her sisters. Her life was dedicated to her family and she thought of us before herself.
Jo is survived by daughter, Cheryl (Gil) Woods, and sons, Steve (Amy) Daugherty, and Mark (Kim) Daugherty, and honorary daughter, Kristie Boyer. She loved her grandchildren, Holly (Mark) Hagerman, Brianne (Adam) Frost, Brandis (Branden) Hillard, Brenna (Marcus) Manchester, Trenton, Tyler, Taylor, Logan, and Travis Daugherty. Her legacy of love continues with her great-grandchildren, Mallory (Vance) Cronin, Adrianna, Ashton and Ethan Hagerman, Noah Baker, Baylie, Ivey and Gabriel Jervis, Acelyn and Briggen Frost, and Carson Beatty. She also loved our "package deal" kids, Laila, Imani, and Mallani Woods, and Preston Hillard.
Jo leaves loving sisters, Wilma and Janet Lindsay, both of Jacksboro, along with a multitude of cousins and friends in Tennessee who will dearly miss her. She will be missed by her "out-laws," Angela Mason, Lynn Daugherty, and Brian Baker.
Jo would like to thank great-granddaughter Mallory Cronin for the excellent homecare given to her so that she could live with Cheryl and Gil. Granny Betty's life was enhanced and lengthened by your loving care and you were her favorite caregiver ever.
