Joseph E. “Joe” Dougherty, 82, Johnson County

Joseph E. “Joe” Dougherty, 82, a lifelong resident of Johnson County, passed away Wednesday, Nov. 20, 2013, at his home in Whiteland.

Joe was born Oct. 26, 1931, in Johnson County to John E. and Josephine E. (Wright) Dougherty. He graduated from Whiteland High School. Joe was a self-employed farmer in Johnson County in Clark Township for all of his adult life. He married N. Amaryllis Watts Jan. 21, 1951, at Rocklane Christian Church near Greenwood. They were married for 62 years.

He joined Rocklane Christian Church when he was 10 years old and was a member for 72 years.

Joe enjoyed farming and raising livestock. He grew produce and sold it at the Greenwood farmers market for 25 years. He also enjoyed fishing and playing cards. He loved spending time with his family and friends. He created a beautiful setting on his farm that many enjoyed.

He is survived by his wife, Amaryllis Dougherty of Whiteland; four children, Ryllis (Tim) Blackwell of Trafalgar, Jerrel (Julia) Dougherty of Whiteland, Kathy (Harold) Floyd of Nineveh and Joy (Mark) McClain of Greenwood; three sisters, Virginia Vaught of Whiteland, Donna Marie (Tony) Laker of Indianapolis and Mary Ellen (Bob) Smith of Greenwood; six brothers, Charles (Mary) Dougherty of Shelbyville, Phillip (Loretta) and Steve (Elaine) Dougherty, both of Greenwood, Donald (Jean) Dougherty of Ohio, James Dougherty of Morristown and William (Tracy) Dougherty of Whiteland; daughter-in-law, Renee Dougherty of Greenwood; 17 grandchildren; and 26 great-grandchildren.

He was preceded in death by his parents; a son, Ivan Daniel Dougherty; and a sister, Marilyn Willis.

A funeral service was conducted Nov. 23 at Rocklane Christian Church in Greenwood. Visitation took place Nov. 22 at the church. Entombment was at Forest Lawn Memory Gardens, Greenwood.

Jessen Funeral Home, Whiteland Chapel, is handling arrangements.

Memorial contributions can be made to the American Cancer Society, 5635 W. 96th St., Suite 100, Indianapolis, IN 46278; or the American Heart Association, 3816 Paysphere Circle, Chicago, IL 60674.
