Mrs. L.H. “Bill”
Daniel passed away Saturday, June 10 at the age of 99. Her passing was preceded
by the passing of her husband L.H. “Dan” Daniel and of her daughter Sandra
Daniel Jaco. She is survived by her son Hayden Daniel, two grandsons, Rick and
David Billingsley, daughter-in-law Barbara Cherry, son-in-law Charles Jaco, and
second-generation daughters-in-law Laura Billingsley and Loli Billingsley.
In 1938, Bill
graduated from the University of Texas where she had met the love of her life
in Dan, a tall-but-quiet engineering student from Greenville. Following their
marriage, World War II began and the U.S. War Department assigned Dan to a
military-engineering posting in Toledo, Ohio where the family lived throughout
the war years. After moving back to Midland, Texas, the family moved to
Greenville in 1953 where Dan joined the family’s business, Daniel Oil Company.
Over the years, Bill
embraced and cherished the additions to the Daniel family in Charles, Barbara,
Laura, and Loli and four great grandchildren in Megan, Chance, David, and
Sandra Marie; and in her later years, this included two treasured ladies in
Wanda Jones and Lydia Villarreal whose great love and dedication made Bill’s
final years a wonderful and spirited journey.
The funeral service
for Mrs. Daniel will be held at Wesley Methodist Church, 10:30 am, Saturday, June
17, 2017 with Rev. Gene Wisdom officiating.
Burial will follow at Memoryland Memorial Park. Coker-Mathews Funeral Home is in charge of
