DUGGAN, DAISY JUANITA “KING”, 88, was born on December 3, 1928 and departed this life on March 17, 2017. She was born in Humboldt, Kansas, the daughter of Clarence and Notra Melton King. She was united in marriage to the love of her life, Wayne Clair Duggan, on September 25, 1944. They were blessed with over 72 years of a wonderful life together. To this union were born four children – Linda Beck(Jim) of Rogers, AR; Mary Evans(Tom) of Andover, KS; Wayne Clair Duggan Jr.(Cindy) of Andover, KS and Verna Abercrombie(Mike) of Andover, KS. She is also survived by 28 grandchildren, great grandchildren and great-great grandchildren, one brother, Charles King of Ponca City, OK and one sister, Beth Perkins of Arizona City, AZ and numerous nieces and nephews. She was preceded in death by five brothers and sisters.
Daisy was a loving wife, a devoted mother and grandmother and a friend to all who knew her. She was a stay at home Mom, devoting her time to ensuring that their children knew right from wrong. She sold Avon for several years and was daytime dispatcher for the Andover Volunteer Fire Department for about 25 years.
Daisy and Clair were totally devoted to each other and their love grew stronger as the years went by. They both enjoyed traveling and RV’ing. They visited 40 states, including Alaska and Hawaii and they also visited Mexico and Canada. For several years they hosted the King Family reunions, and loved having up to 100 people attend these family gatherings. She was always very family-oriented and nothing was more important. She was a long time member of Prairie Hills Southern Baptist Church and was very active in church activities until her health declined.
Visitation with family will be held on Monday, March 20 from 10:00 a.m. to service time at Prairie Hills Southern Baptist Church, 9959 SW Pampas Rd, Augusta, KS 67010 with funeral service to follow at 11:00 a.m. also at Prairie Hills Southern Baptist Church. Interment will be in Bruno Township Cemetery, Andover.
Daisy was a longtime resident of Andover, having moved there with her husband, Clair and children in 1959. She was a friendly, out-going lady who was liked by all and will be sorely missed by her many friends, her loving husband and family. We are comforted by knowing that today she is free from pain and suffering and is waiting for us to join her in God’s presence.
