Josephine Rita (Wachter) Dugger was born to Andrew and Maria Wachter on December 18, 1926 in Mt. Angel, Oregon.

She was valedictorian of her graduating class at Mt. Angel High School and after graduation went to work at a lumber company. Jo, as she was known to her friends and family, married Weldon Dugger on July 11, 1947 in Salem, Oregon and to this union three children were born, Jimmy, Gene, and Denise. She and Weldon lived in San Diego, California before moving to Blanchard in March of 1971. Jo owned and operated Dugger Auto Supply until she retired to spend more time with Weldon, her kids, and her grandkids, which she absolutely adored. She and Weldon also traveled and enjoyed their retirement.

Jo peacefully passed away on Friday, June 22, 2012 at 7:30 A.M.

Survivors include her children, son Jimmy Dugger and his wife, Cathy, of Fairfield Bay, Arkansas, son Gene Dugger and his wife, LaDonna, of Blanchard, daughter Denise Johnston and husband, Rick, of Blanchard; grandchildren, Alicia Moore, Ashley Tallant, Ryan Dugger, Amber Garrett, Chad Johnston, Cody Beck, Clay Crawford, Kristi Davis, Becky Suthers, DeLyn Cummings, Kelly Rosa, and Katina Knowles; 12 great grandchildren, Alex, Trent, Summer, Kameron, Heidi, Zach, Syreena, Belle, Damon, Cole, Garrett, and Lyndi; one great-great grandchild Avery; brothers-in-law Troy Dugger and his wife, Libby, of Bethany, Wesley Dugger, of Benton, Arkansas; sister-in-law Betty Mitchell and her husband, Vernon, of Blanchard; numerous other relatives and friends.

Jo was preceded in death by her beloved husband, Weldon, her parents Andrew and Mary Wachter, two brothers Andy Wachter and Father Carl Wachter, one sister Mary, and one grandson Wayne Dugger.

Jo was one of the sweetest people in the world and never met a person that she did not like. And everyone who met her liked her just as much. She had the most loving and giving personality and she will be deeply missed. Today she is with our Lord and proud to be one of His angels.
