Cordia Delia Daniel

Cordia Delia Daniel, 69 who passed away, 7 o’clock in the morning, Tuesday, April 18, at the family home, had been in failing health for years. However, that morning she appeared better, her daughter, Mrs. O.J. Melton thought when she went into her mother’s room. They had laughed and talked together as the daughter straightened the mother’s bedding. But when Mrs. Melton turned to Mrs. Daniel again, she was shocked to see her breathing her last. Death was caused from heart failure.

Mrs. Daniel was born January 13, 187? in Bell County, the daughter of Mr. and Mrs. J.L. Hayes. She was married to J.R. Daniel December 25, 1899.

Funeral services were conducted by Minister Loye Ruckman, pastor of the Church of Christ at the Daniel home one o’clock, Wednesday, April 19. Interment was at Purvis, Texas. Pallbearers were Dick Clark, Alan S????, Ray Grumbles, Penny Johnson, Pete Johnson and John Perry. She also leaves 20 grandchildren and four great grandchildren, five brothers and five sisters.

Surviving are the following children: Mrs. O.J. Melton, San Saba; Hearel Daniel, Dublin; Leonard Daniel, Mrs. Vera Donald, San Antonio; Jimmie Daniel, San Saba; Calvin Daniel, Vinton, Louisiana; J. Lee Daniel, San Saba.

The deceased moved to Comanche County when a little girl. She spent her early married life in Comanche, moving to San Saba in 1915. Her husband preceded her in death, 17 years. She had been a life long member of the Church of Christ.

In the passing of Mrs. Daniel a kind friend and neighbor, a loving and faithful mother, grandmother and sister will be missed but the memory of her will brighten her loved ones’ paths.
