APACHE JUNCTION, Ariz. – Today our sweet Mother, Wife, Grandmother, Sister, Aunt and Friend, Darlene Daugherty, is smiling and rejoicing with her dear sweetheart, Harry, in Heaven. She passed from this life on the early morning of Nov. 15, 2019.
Darlene was born on May 20, 1930, to Bertha and Henry Keller. She met and married the love of her life, Harry Arnold Daugherty. They spent over 60 wonderful years loving and supporting each other before Dad’s passing. Together they raised four children, Tom, Jerry, Don, & Randy. Mom spent her life as a wife, homemaker and mother. Loving for her family is what she did best. Mom also had a love for baseball, for her local Diamondback team, and for playing endless hours of cards with friends and loved ones.
She was a member of the Lyman Christian Church in Nebraska, and Faith Bible Church in Apache Junction. She loved studying and reading her scriptures and serving in various positions in the church when her health would allow. Darlene and Harry were very kind and giving to many organizations and church-based programs. Their philanthropic efforts have helped many over the years, and for this they will always be remembered.
Mom is survived by two of her children, Jerry Daugherty of Herriman, Utah, and Don Daugherty of Gilbert, Ariz., four grandchildren, Aaron Daugherty of Herriman, Angela Shino of Las Vegas, Nev., Blaise Daugherty of Cedar City, Utah, Breckan Daugherty of Herriman, and four great-grandchildren, Emma Daugherty of Mt.
