Dec. 11, 1926 – Jan. 5, 2014
Daphne Joan Dineley, 87, passed away peacefully at her daughter and son-in-law’s home on Jan. 5, 2014. Daphne, also affectionately known by many as “Momma Jo” or simply “Jo”, was born in Bloomington, Neb. on Dec. 11, 1926. She and her family moved from Nebraska to Milton when she was a young child, where she lived until she married her husband Jack on Aug. 9, 1947. They lived in Big Creek and then in Visalia until they moved to Tehachapi in 1961, where they raised their two children, Tom and Terrie. They grew to love their community and made many wonderful friends. They spent many happy years there until Jack passed away in 2008 and Jo’s health declined. In 2012 Jo moved to Pauls Valley, Okla. to be cared for by her daughter Terrie. Although she missed her friends in Tehachapi, Jo learned to love Oklahoma as well. She soon realized that people in Oklahoma were very friendly and kind-hearted, and that she loved spending time with and being cared for by her loved ones. She enjoyed country living to the fullest and found that one of her favorite past-times was to watch the ducks on the pond or the brilliantly red cardinal birds which resided right outside of her new home.
