Daisy loved her family and friends, but most of all she loved her Lord and loved attending church. She was involved in different departments just to mention a few: Women’s Ministries, Home League, Crusaders and VBS. She was a loving, caring, kind-hearted and generous person, going out of her way to help others. She was a model of God’s forgiveness. Daisy loved playing her tambourine and knitting (having to ravel or cutting up her wool). Later in years she attended school and learned to print her name which was a cherished accomplishment. Also one of the greatest inspiration in her life was her beloved husband John and the years they spent together.
