Mrs. Juanita Goins Estes

Mrs. Juanita Goins Estes, 93, passed away from complications of a stroke on Friday, October 14, 2016.  Born in LaFollette, TN, in 1923, she was the third of nine children born to Kelly and Mary Pearl Goins.  She reared her children in the church and was a former member of Wallace Memorial Baptist in Knoxville and Rehobeth Baptist in Tucker, GA.

Juanita was a loving mother to Sandra Estes Turner and Edwin Estes, Knoxville, and doting grandmother to Scott Andrew (Denise) Turner in Nashville, TN, and Rachel Elizabeth (Heath) Clucas in New Zealand.  She is great-grandmother to Minho Elias Turner, 6 years old, and Eli Oliver Clucas, 8 ½ mos.  Many thanks for support go to surviving sisters Elaine and Barbara Goins of Dayton, Ohio, and brothers, Kenneth (Betty) Goins of Cleveland, TN, and Clester Goins of Hammond, IN, as well as nephews Marvin Miller and Mike Gentry and nieces Maxine Goins and Vickie Braden.

Following the family tradition of her ancestor Daniel Going, who was a member of Virginia’s 5th regiment during the American Revolutionary War and her father, a soldier in WWI, she was a WWII patriot.  Before the age of 20, she aided her generation’s war effort on an assembly line of B52 bombers at a plant in Michigan.  When the secret city of Oak Ridge neared completion, she came home to work at the Y-12 Plant and unknowingly joined in the race to build the first atomic bomb.  It was there that she met Wilbur Estes, now deceased, and their marriage lasted 38 years.  Juanita also worked at Levi Strauss & Co. and White Stores on Cumberland Avenue, Knoxville.

Preceding her in death was older brother Cpl. Harvey Goins, a WWII member of the 371st Bombardment Squadron who received the presidential citation for the first raid on Truk, the good conduct medal, Asiatic and Pacific Campaign medals and two battle stars.  Also deceased is younger brother, Ralph, who served in the U.S. Air Force in Japan, special sisters, Evelyn Miller and Margie Gentry, and an infant grandchild, Jonathan Patrick Turner.

    Madge Dupuy Daugherty

    Madge Dupuy Daugherty, age 91, of Jacksboro, traveled to God's loving arms on February 9, 2016 after a bitter battle with cancer.  Preceded in death by parents, Nancy Litton and James Dupuy; sisters, Virginia Shown and Mildred Smith; half-brothers, James and George Lawson. 

    She will be remembered for her loving smile, kind words and unfailing optimism by her family and all that were lucky enough to know her.  Mrs. Daugherty was born in Demory, as Madge Dupuy, to her parents, Jim and Nancy Dupuy, a working family that struggled through the depression and war, and sacrificed much for each other.  She was an old school lady, who always dressed up to go out, even if only to the store, because that was what ladies were supposed to do.  But her most striking features were her quiet voice and smile that was always contagious to everyone around her.  She loved to tend her garden, her flowers, can vegetables, and care for her family.  She enjoyed the smell of freshly cut grass and the sound of birds in the spring.

    In her later years, Madge was always seen in Jacksboro and the surrounding area at the arm of her husband of 60 years, Lendon Daugherty, as they shopped, had breakfast together, and drove around the area.

    She is survived by her husband, Lendon, three daughters, Sandra Daugherty, Sheila Griffith and Gale Stanley; her son-in-law's, David Griffith and Bill Stanley

    Seven grandchildren, all of whom she cared for in their early years, teaching them compassion, love and an optimism for life based on simple virtues and care; grandsons Anthony Douglas, Devin Douglas, Jarod Griffith and Preston Griffith; granddaughters Whitney Issacs, Victoria Griffith and Tara Griffith.  She was blessed to hold her first great grandchild, Asher Issacs, before her passing.

    Her extended family includes, Lisa and Keith Cash, Sydney Cash, and Jennifer and Clint Smith.

    Madge was a stay at home mother, who cared deeply for her daughters, teaching them the values of education, hard work, and faith.  As she cared for her grandchildren, they all shared great adventures on the farm, learning about plants, animals and love for family.  But above all, she leaves every one with her strong faith and belief in God.  A member of Jacksboro First Baptist, her faith sustained her since being saved at age nine.  That faith was demonstrated quietly in the way she faced life's challenges and disappointments with a kind word, a smile and steadfast love that will be remembered by all that were lucky enough to know her.
