Daisy was born in Mills, Texas, to the late William B. and Maude Polk Hardin and grew up in the Brady area. She was a graduate of Southwest Texas Teachers College in San Marcos. After college she went to work as a home demonstration agent in Alice, where she met Henry T. Bass while he was working with the U.S. Agriculture and Conservation Service. The couple were married on May 27, 1939, in Alice and moved to Meridian in 1946. He continued his work with the U.S. Government and she began a career with the Meridian Independent School District as a homemaking teacher.
She stayed in the Meridian schools for many years, teaching the girls to cook and sew. During this time, she completed her Master's Degree at Baylor University. She was always involved in the community and her church. She was a faithful believer and one did not have to talk about religion — one just knew it was there.
She was preceded in death by her husband, Henry T. Bass, on Sept. 19, 2005.
Survivors include daughter, Karin Borman-Berg and husband, Joe, of Salado; son, Kent Bass and wife, Janet, of Lewisville; grandchildren, Tiffany McKeever and Jordan Bass; great-grandchildren, Allie and Kate McKeever; and a number of other relatives and many friends.
