Daisy Duckworth, as portrayed by Debbie Robinson, said the local newspaper never quoted her correctly and would print just about anything to attract more readers. Daisy married George Washington Duckworth in 1897. Daisy was active in Centerville affairs and dubbed herself the "Pied Piper of Salvage" as she helped to raise metal, cloth and paper for the WW II war effort. Daisy was the organizer of the Daughters of Union Veterans and Fannie Walden Tent No. 33 of Appanoose County. Duckworth, who was born Jan. 17, 1878 in Centerville passed away July 3, 1961 in Centerville and is buried in Oakland Cemetery.
