Vera Daugherty, 86, of Arnold, Kentucky took Jesus by the hand and gained her heavenly home on April 6, 2020 at her residence. She was born August 9, 1933 in Baizetown, Kentucky to the late Kenneth Daugherty and Bunah Baize Daugherty. Vera was a member of Abundant Life Apostolic Church in Beaver Dam and worked for GE, was the secretary at Horse Branch School and was the bookkeeper for her husband’s sawmill operation as well as their farm. She saw good in everything and everyone; loved the farm, her cattle, gardening, canning and her flowers. Vera loved her home of sixty-seven years in Arnold where she called Paradise. Many would see her sitting on the porch enjoying life and if you stopped for a visit she always had a treat, a Little Debbie cake, cookies, or candy; always with a smile on her face.
Aside from her parents she was preceded in death by her husband, Charlie Daugherty, six siblings, son-in-law, Charles Geary and beloved dog, Hilow.
She leaves behind to treasure many memories, two children, Trica (Ronnie) Butler of Arnold and Rickey (Alicia) Daugherty of Horse Branch; stepdaughter, Emma Jean Geary of Beaver Dam; three grandchildren, Crystal Daugherty, Nathaniel (Lakayah) Daugherty and LaTasha Daugherty; three great-grandchildren, Zakari, Chloe and Charlie “Little Charlie”; brother, Joyce Daugherty of Beaver Dam and nieces, nephews, church family and many cherished friends.
In compliance with health and public safety directives, private services will be held. Burial will be in Fairview Cemetery in Horse Branch, Kentucky. William L. Danks Funeral Home in Beaver Dam, Kentucky has been entrusted with the arrangements.
