  • Gone, but not forgotten

    Grant County lost two lovely ladies last week.

    Miss Della Jones and Mrs. Geneva (Mam-maw) Hutchison were a lot a like.

    Miss Della, Grant County’s oldest resident at 106, was a joy to be around. She had the most beautiful smile that managed to light up her dark eyes. She was soft spoken and genteel, but when she did speak, her words carried a lot of wisdom and thought.

    I first met Miss Della when she turned 100. That interview was one I’ll never forget because she was such a character. I spent an enjoyable afternoon talking with her about her life.

    Daugherty spent 28 years in a small room. She battled snakes once and bad weather during the winter.

    If she needed to use the restroom, she had to leave the building and go across the street. Once she had to operate out of a mobile unit with a portable heater to keep warm, but through it all, she never missed a day of work, other than for a vacation.
