Joan "Joni" Marie Baugh, 70, Carthage Mo., passed away peacefully Monday, October 30th, 2017, after a sudden illness. She was at home, surrounded by her family.
Joni was born, in Tulsa, Okla., on January 23, 1947, to F.M. and Betty Hardesty and was the second of four daughters.
She was preceded in death by both parents and her oldest sister, Rita Keeton.
Joni leaves behind her husband of 37 years, Dick Baugh; children, Thresia (Larry) Coble, Scott Tucker (Brad Wyatt), Tracy (Shane) Roberts, Noah (Jesi) Baugh, Tara (Rocky) Binning; 17 grandchildren; her sisters, Judith Sewell and Emma Hardesty; and many nieces and nephews.
We could write a novel trying to adequately describe the most wonderful woman we've ever known. We are so incredibly blessed to have had the time we did and to have been so deeply loved. We will forever thank God for making her ours.
We will celebrate Joni's life on Saturday, November 4th, from 2-5 p.m. at Memorial Hall, in Carthage.
Come and go as you please.
