Jon J. Dougherty, 73, of the Black Hills, SD, died November 11, 2023. He was born in Ponca, Nebraska on August 5, 1950 to John B. Dougherty and Alice M. Kniefl Dougherty. Being the youngest of 8 children, Jon was often enticed to climb trees that his older brother David would rapidly crop down returning Jon swiftly to the forest floor. He attended South Sioux City High School before joining the Air Force. In the Air Force, Jon was stationed in Okinawa during the Vietnam War. Upon entering back into civilian life, Jon returned to his beloved Black Hills, where he met the love of his life, Linda S. Gondek. Jon and Linda were married in August of 1975. Ten years later they were blessed with the arrival of their daughter, Becky. He was an avid reader who enjoyed learning as much as he could about history, culture, and the natural world around him. He took much joy in hiking, bicycling, motorcycling, fly fishing, and kayaking all over the Hills. He was clever, with a tremendous sense of humor and he rarely missed an episode of Jeopardy and his daily Jeopardy calendar clue (a traditional annual Christmas present). Jon's happiest times were as " ", spending time with Becky, son-in-law, Joe, and grandsons, Joey aka Hawkeye (7) and Ollie (5). He took an active role in the lives of his grand kids. He was there for every birthday, baseball or soccer game, and school concert. He loved taking them out to the park to play and staying in to build forts at home. Jon was preceded in death by his wife, Linda; his parents, John and Alice Dougherty; sisters Dorothy, Pat, and Ruth; and longtime friend Dennis. He left behind his adoring grandchildren, Joey and Ollie; daughter Becky and her husband Joe. Siblings Joan, Rachel, David, and Alice, as well as beloved nieces and nephews, cousins, and dear friends. Jon will always be remembered for his strong masculine exterior but more deeply for his kind heart. He leaves behind so many stories of joy and laughter. We couldn't have asked for a better dad, grandpa, brother, and uncle. His memory will live on in the hearts of all those who loved him and we will miss him every day. A memorial account has been set up at Black Hills Federal Credit Union for those who wish to make a donation. Memorial funds will be contributed to a college savings account for Jon's pride and joy, his grandsons, Joey and Ollie. The family thanks you for all your thoughts, prayers, and condolences.

Bart Parsons

Bart Parsons

Age - 19

November 15, 2023

Barton Lee Parsons, better known as "Bart" by family and friends, was born September 13, 1931, in Manderson, South Dakota, the fourth of seven children born to Bill and Helen (Elshere) Parsons. The family had moved there to find work during the early dust bowl years of the depression. The family moved back to Milesville, South Dakota in the spring of 1935. Bart attended grade school in Milesville and graduated from Philip High School in 1949. After high school he began farming and ranching in Milesville. During the summer of 1950, a traveling missionary named Bob Huff spent part of the summer living with the family. During that time, Bart accepted God's free gift of salvation at the age of 19, shortly after his father died in an accident. He married Janice Thorson on February 5, 1958. Together they raised their children: Sharon Olivier of Milesville, Nancy Hohwieler of Lincoln, Nebraska, Earl Parsons of Milesville, and Mike Parsons of Spearfish. Bart and Janice were faithful members of the Hardingrove Evangelical Free Church and attended Sunday morning services their entire life together. Bart loved to farm and ranch. He loved cattle and horses, good crops and green grass, rodeos, and baseball games. He enjoyed visiting with friends and family, playing cards, and going for drives with Janice and friends just exploring the country. On one Sunday drive with their good friends, Dick and Gene Hudson, they drove about 500 miles just exploring. Bart and Janice attended many rodeos over the years, from the local rodeos around Milesville, Philip, and Faith, to the National Finals Rodeo in Las Vegas. He had an autographed picture of himself and rodeo saddle bronc champion, Billy Etbauer. Bart was an extremely hard-working man who worked to provide for his family. He was generous, sharing what he had with those in need. He had the gift of conversation and could strike up a conversation with almost anyone. Bart had a sharp mind, whether working out math problems in his head or figuring out what cards his opponent had in the game of 4-point pitch. He always claimed to have only read two books in his life: Smokey the Cowhorse and The Enchanted Castle; but we all know he read the Bible every night. Bart was also a very humble man; so much so that he did not even tell his family about receiving the Heartland Limousin Commercial Producer Award at the Black Hills Stock Show in 2002. Survivors include his wife, Janice of Milesville; sons, Earl (Jodi) Parsons of Milesville and Michael (Melody) Parsons of Spearfish; daughters, Sharon (Bryan) Olivier of Milesville and Nancy (George) Hohwieler of Lincoln, NE; ten grandchildren: Tyler Olivier and Stacy Lewis, Shea Olivier, Andy and Kylie Hohwieler, Bradley Hohwieler, Jordan and Michaela Hohwieler, Rachel Parsons, Sarah Parsons, Bailey and Dylan Terry, Carter Parsons, and Landon Parsons; two great-grandchildren: Liam Olivier and Hallie Hohwieler; brother, Billie (Connie) Parsons of Milesville; sisters, Doris Berry of Milesville, Mary Slovek of Philip, and Leah (James) Waddell of Phoenix, AZ; sister-in-law Joanne Parsons; and many other relatives and friends.
