MOUNT CARROLL—Eunice G. Daggert, 98, of Mount Carroll, passed away Wednesday, March 31, 2021, at Allure of Mount Carroll Nursing Home.

A private funeral service will be held in her honor Tuesday, April 6, at Trinity Lutheran Church in rural Mount Carroll with burial at Oak Hill Cemetery in Mount Carroll.

Eunice was born Sept. 14, 1922, in Clinton, Wis., the daughter of Harold and Verna (Voltz) Best. She attended Clinton schools, graduating from Clinton High School. On June 1, 1941, Eunice married Sherman C. Daggert. The couple enjoyed 47 years of marriage before Sherman's passing in 1989.

Eunice spent years working for Shimer College as a cook and server while running the college grill on campus, and also at Oakville Golf Course.

Her most important work, however, was that of a wife, mother and grandmother. She valued her family more than anything in life and took great pride in caring for them in every way she could. Luckily for her family, this included her excellent baking! The delicious scent of fresh-baked bread and cinnamon rolls was commonplace in the Daggert household.

In her free time, Eunice truly loved reading her Bible, attending church service and listening to and even playing church hymns. She served as an organist at Trinity Lutheran. She also enjoyed needlepoint, and playing cards, especially Cribbage and 500, with her friends and family.

Eunice will be dearly missed by her son, Douglas (Marilyn) Daggert of Mount Carroll and Hot Springs Village, Ark.; daughter-in-law, Dottie (Darrell) Daggert of Texarkana, Ark.; six grandchildren, Corey (Cory) of Freeport, Nikki (Eric) Yerly of Bryon, Chris (Karen) Daggert of North Port, Ala., Mark Daggert of Winston-Salem, N.C., David (Bonnie) Bishop of Fort Collins Colo., and Kelly (Robin) Bishop of Texarkana Ark.; 11 great-grandchildren; and two great-great-grandchildren.

She was preceded in death by her parents, Harold and Verna; husband, Sherman; brother, Levere Best; and son, Darrell Daggert.
