Chason, Jr. Her memory will be cherished by her surviving family members, daughter, Mildred Chason Bunton and husband Ray; daughter-in-law, Sue Chason; four grandchildren, John Howard Chason, III and wife Lisa; Samuel Dean Bunton and wife Karen; Gregory Frank Bunton; Debra Chason Dawson and husband Steve; seven great grandchildren, Lindsay Chason; Daniel Chason; Connor Chason; Jeffrey Dawson; Christopher Dawson; Brooke Bunton; Beau Bunton; one brother, Harvey Daughtry and wife Mary; two sisters, Pat Norris; Meredith Martin and husband Marion; and a host of nieces, nephews, extended family members and friends.

She was a native of Wakulla County and after her marriage in 1938 resided in Carrabelle, Florida. In 1948, she and her family moved to Tallahassee, Florida. She retired from the Leon County School District in 1980. After the death of her husband in 1986, she returned to the Curtis Mills Community in Wakulla County for many years of enjoyment along the Ochlockonee River. She was a Baptist in faith and a member of the Order of the Eastern Star of Florida Chapter 36.

Graveside funeral services will be held Sunday at 2:00 p.m., at Roselawn Cemetery, 801 Piedmont Drive in Tallahassee, and the family will receive friends from 1:30 to 2:00p.m. at Roselawn cemetery preceding the service. The family suggests informal attire. In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions may be made to Big Bend Hospice, 1723 Mahan Center Blvd., Tallahassee, FL, 32308-5428.

She was "The Wind Beneath Our Wings" -- believing in us, reminding us that life is to be celebrated, and always being there with unshakable loyalty, love and support. It brings peace in our hearts to know that she now is restored in body and spirit and is rejoicing in heaven with so many loved ones.
