After the death of Vincent, her husband of 63 years, she moved in 2010 to Michigan with her daughter, Sharon and family.  In 2013, they moved to Owings Mills. She had a stroke in 2016 that left her paralyzed on her left side.

Both Daisy and Vince spent a lot of time at our house. We considered them part of the family and memories of them are vivid. We all loved them.

Daisy was with us so often that she was, indeed, family. We continued to be in touch until a couple of years ago.
It is difficult to have the last person who shared our childhood gone. We loved her too, Sharon!
My condolences to you all. dana
