Crafting held a special place in Beth’s heart, allowing her to express her creativity and bring joy to others through her handmade creations. She found immense happiness in spending quality time with her grandchildren, creating lasting memories filled with love and laughter. Bingo nights were also a favorite pastime for Beth, as she enjoyed the thrill of the game and the camaraderie it brought.
Beth had a discerning eye for fashion and delighted in shopping, particularly at Hamricks, where she discovered unique pieces to add to her stylish wardrobe. Her outings for lunch with friends were cherished occasions, as she relished in the company of those she loved.
Beth is survived by her devoted husband, James Daughtry, who stood by her side throughout their journey together. She also leaves behind two loving children, Ronda Daughtry Royall and Mabel Daughtry, who will forever carry her memory in their hearts. Her granddaughter, Whitney Baker, and great-grandchildren, Bentley Gregory and Willow Baker, brought immeasurable joy to her life and will continue to be a testament to her legacy.
In addition to her parents, Beth was preceded in death by her best friend, Linda, who shared countless adventures and laughter with her.
