Mary E. Daniel

Mary E. Daniel passed away Oct. 2, 2005 at the Grand River Medical Center. She was 82 years old.

She was born Oct. 16, 1922 in Manitoba, Canada, to James A. and Elizabeth (Cook) Morrow.

She married George Leo Daniel on July 25, 1953, at Greenwood United Church, the same church in which her parents were married, in Winnipeg, Canada.

Mary and her husband bought a ranch north of New Castle after her husband retired from the service. They called their ranch The Wayward Wind.

She was a retail sales person in Rifle since 1963.

After they sold the ranch, they moved to Rifle. Mary moved to senior housing after her husband passed away in 1989. She was a volunteer at the senior center.

Mary was a wonderful mother, grandmother, wife and friend. She loved playing the piano, baking and cooking. She was famous for her homemade bread.

She is survived by sons Dick Daniel, of Silt, Bruce Daniel, of Hayden, and Charlie Daniel, of Rifle; sister Shirley (Bill) Taylor, of Winnipeg; and seven grandchildren.

Besides her husband, she was preceded in death by a brother, Robert “Bob” Morrow.

There is a memorial service at 2 p.m. Friday at the Rifle Funeral Home Chapel, with the Rev. Susan McKeon, of Sacred Center, officiating.

The Rifle Funeral Home is in charge of arrangements.

Cards and letters are appreciated. Donations can be made to the Rifle Senior Center through a memorial account at any Alpine Bank, under Richard Daniel for Mary Daniel.
