I have many memories, especially her cooking and the recipes she shared with me. I still make them to this day. She was a lovely person and I never saw her without a smile for me and Ronnie. Our prayers are for her family. Judy is rejoicing and we all have another reason to make heaven our home.
Until we meet again, goodbye sweet lady you will be missed.

I will never forget Sister Daugherty sitting on the left side of the front left pew at Westside. She was there every time the doors were open. She was such an inspiration to me. Rest in peace Sister Daugherty and fly high with the angels!!!

I have lots of good memories of Judy and your family that go way back.

May Our Heavenly Father send His Holy Ghost to comfort you.

Be ready to meet the Lord when He calls your name and your time on Earth is done.
