She was especially proud to be featured in an AJC local sports article. Joanne experienced great pleasure that some of her great grandchildren developed a love and passion for the sport as well.

  1. CandleImageMom, I love you so very much. I hate that I can’t be with you as they lay you to rest. I hate that I couldn’t hold your hand as you took your last breath. I hate that I couldn’t even give you a big hug and kiss before you left this earth. I know you are with Jesus now, your mom and Lori and all your loved ones. Rest in peace mama. Until we are reunited again, know that I will carry you with me to my dying day!
    Love,
    Belinda

  2. CandleImageGrandmother I love you so very much. You were so good to others and had the kindest heart and you loved your family very much. I wish we were able to be there for you in person and hug you and kiss you goodbye. It breaks my heart that our family wasn’t able to do so. One day we will be reunited with you and we will get to hug you and be with you forever. I know you are in a better place now and I love you so much.

  3. CandleImageAmber,

    Jessica and I are so sorry for your loss. We will be keeping you and your family in our thoughts and prayers.

  4. “Mrs. Daniel” was my mom’s best friend while our families were next-door neighbors for nine years, 1961 – 1970. I remember Mrs. Daniel driving me, my sister, and her kids to school on cold mornings. I also remember her and my mom, Nancy Couch, awaiting our return when we would walk home from school. Mrs. Daniel made funny jokes and was very patient and kind. She never had a harsh word for me, nor any of the other neighborhood kids.

    Joanne and Nancy both had husbands that worked crazy long hours. Consequently, they would take turns having coffee in each other’s kitchens after us kids were in bed. Apparently, they had a Christmas Eve tradition of getting together after the “arrangements” for the kids were made and the kids were asleep–but I overheard a couple of times!!

    Our own mother is, also, at an “end of life” stage–complete with dementia and heart failure. I decided to tell mom about “Mrs. Daniel’s” passing. She completely understood and genuinely grieved. I love to think of the day when these two old friends can reunite, have coffee, and laugh about whatever they used to laugh about–all in the presence of their Lord, and Savior, Jesus Christ. What a day of rejoicing that will be!!

    • Susan, I love your remembrances!! We must get together once this pandemic is over to continue reminiscing and to celebrate our moms… ❤️❤️❤️

      Belinda

  7. Praying for the Daniel family on the passing of Mrs. Daniel. I was made aware through our Blazers Sunday School class at Peachtree Road United Methodist Church. Although I did not know Mrs. Daniel, I pray especially for Ivy Carroll, her granddaughter. Ivy is the daughter in law of one of our Sunday School members, Martha and Ken Carroll. May she rest in peace.
