Venida Onell Rambo Daugherty of Cleburne, formerly of Burnet, passed away Wednesday, May 17, 2017. She was born July 12, 1928, in Izoro, Texas to Jack and Ola Rambo.

Venida served her family with faith and strong values for many years as a stay at home wife and mom. She was a pillar of support and dependability for her grandchildren and extended family as well.

She loved gardening, sewing (even having a thimble collection!), and traveling with her family to the Southwest region of the United States.
