Gladis Daugherty

Gladis Daugherty, 93, of Crossett passed away November 16, 2013 at Ashley County Medical Center.

She was born December 22, 1919 to Jesse and Ethel Slaughter.

Mrs. Daugherty was married to John Phillip Daugherty, on August 6, 1935. She was known as a loving mother and grandmother. She is remembered by her children as a strong woman, not only physically but spiritually; who took pride in the fact that she raised all three of her children to know and love the Lord.

She was a proud member of First United Pentecostal Church.  She worked many years for Nunn’s Laundry Service along with being a seamstress but, perhaps she was most well known for her produce stand and being a homemaker. In her free time she could be found in her garden tending to her flowers and vegetables or spending time with her many grandchildren.

She was preceded in death by her parents, her husband, and her two brothers Thomas Virgil and Curtis Burch, one sister, Hazle Hughling and one granddaughter.

She is survived by her children John Raymond Daugherty of Bastrop, Shelia Elizabeth Jones and Jerry Daugherty both of Crossett. She was also blessed with nine grandchildren, twenty-one great-grandchildren, and three great-great-grandchildren.

Services will be held Tuesday, November 19, at 2:00 PM at First United Pentecostal Church with Bro. Larry Hickman officiating followed by an interment in Lacey Cemetery. Visitation will be Monday, November 18, at 5:00 also at First United Pentecostal Church.
