Williamstown's Rita Daugherty, volunteer, wise mother

Whether it was with her sewing, her music, or her vivid imagination, Rita Orr Daugherty had the ability to make even the simplest thing special.

As a volunteer at a nursing home, Mrs. Daugherty used her sewing talents to make life a bit easier for elderly patients.

"She enjoyed making aprons for people with walkers so that they could have something with pockets for their brushes, combs, and other little trinkets," Mrs. Daugherty's husband, the Rev. R. T. Daugherty said.

"She would sometimes sneak in and leave them (the aprons) and nobody would know where they came from."

At home, Mrs. Daugherty needed only some time and her imagination to entertain and teach her children.

"She would take me and my brother into the other room in the evenings and she would play word games with us," said her daughter, Lorretta Hitchcock of Rochester Hills, Mich.

"She tried to teach us the value of inexpensive time spent together."

Mrs. Daugherty died Monday evening at her home in Williamstown. She was 74.

In addition to her volunteer work at the nursing home, she was also a volunteer chaplain at the hospital and spent a great deal of time at the Williamstown Baptist Church, where her husband is the pastor.

Mrs. Daugherty taught Sunday school, sang in the church choir and was a member of the church's Women's Missionary Union.

"She taught me the value of a tender heart," said her son, Raymond Daugherty of Sadieville.

"I hear my mother's voice so often. It is a guidance that tuned me in to what others were feeling and the impact of my behavior on others."

Mrs. Daugherty also taught others. She was a former substitute teacher for Williamstown independent schools, and was the school system's first secretary.

She wrote "Through the Years," a history book on the Women's Missionary Union of the Crittenden Association of Baptist Churches in Kentucky.

Mrs. Daugherty's other survivors include sisters, Irma Tosh of Farmington Hills, Mich., Betty Toney of Palm Harbor, Fla. and Corine Toney of Pinkney, Mich.; eight grandchildren; and six great-grandchildren.

Services will be at 2 p.m. Thursday at the church. Visitation will be from 4 to 8 p.m. today at Elliston-Stanley Funeral Home, Williamstown, and from 1 p.m. Thursday until services at the church. Burial will be in Williamstown Cemetery.
