Daisy will be surely missed.
Aunt Daisy you surely will be missed and hopefully you will know how much we love you. You always made me feel so much part of the family so many memories and I will cherish everyone of them. Love You Bill and sherry Rest in Peace
A a note of sympathy. I’ll always remember Daisy for her kindness. Many years ago, when Daisy had her shop here on Wellesley Island, I brought my mom to her to have her hair taken care of. My mother was quite elderly at the time, had suffered 3 strokes, and was not able to speak. Daisy showed her so much kindness and gentleness. It brings a tear to my eye to hear of Daisy’s passing. May she rest in peace.

Daisy was my Great Aunt. I remember time in the Thousand Islands and here in FL that I got to spend with her. To have a Great Aunt was amazing to me. I will never forget her wit and humor and her telling you how it was. Love you Great Aunt Daisy will miss you. But until we meet again in heaven keep those angles in check and I know you will be my angle. RIP.
My deepest sympathy to a very dear friend ,who always was there to help me whether in hairdressing or thru the Rebekah. May she rest in peace. wendy
