RALEIGH - Daisy Mason Banks, of 2730 Anderson Drive, Raleigh, died on 22 November 2004. She was born on 7 March 1907, the daughter of Derwood W. and Cassandra H. Mason of Atlantic, North Carolina.

She was the widow of the late Veston Colbourne Banks, a former member of the North Carolina House of Representatives. Educated at East Carolina University and Barton College, she was a teacher for 44 years in the public schools of Carteret, Craven, Pamlico and Wake Counties.

After her retirement, she served for many years as a docent at the North Carolina Museum of History. She was a member of Edenton Street United Methodist Church, where she was an honorary Steward, and for many years, was a member of the Betsy Peele Bible Class and various church circles.
