XENIA — Betty Jo Daugherty, 82, of Xenia, passed away peacefully Sunday, June 10, 2018 following a heroic battle against dementia. She was born in Jacksboro, TN on August 14, 1935 to Clyde and Ruth (Shown) Lindsay, who preceded her in death. On December 24, 1954, she married the love of her life, Ernest Daugherty. They were married 32+ years until his death in 1987. Jo retired from Hooven & Allison after many years of service. She loved to read, crochet, knit, 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 continues with her great-grandchildren Mallory (Vance) Cronin, Adrianna, Ashton & Ethan Hagerman, Noah Baker, Baylie, Ivey & Gabriel Jervis, Acelyn & Briggen Frost, and Carson Beatty. She also loved our "package deal" kids, Laila, Imani, & Mallani Woods, and Preston Hillard. Jo leaves loving sisters, Wilma and Janet Lindsay, along with a multitude of cousins and friends in TN who will dearly miss her. She will be missed by her "out-laws", Angela Mason, Lynn Daugherty, and Brian Baker.
