At the age of 18, she began working at the Rothesay Collegiate School as a member of the housekeeping staff, where she met her husband Clifford. Daisy and Clifford were residents of Fairvale for most of their lives. She enjoyed gardening and reading, especially The Readers Digest and The Kings County Record. Daisy was a faithful member of True Life Church, formerly Rothesay Baptist Church. She enjoyed singing hymns and attending church services at the nursing home. Daisy will be missed by all who knew her.
