Daisy Mary Beale Richardson
Birth: Feb. 23, 1896
Isle of Wight County
Virginia, USA
Death: Dec. 31, 1983
Newport News City
Virginia, USA

Daisy was the first born of eleven children born to John Wesly Beale and Nellie Eliza Addison Beale. She was born in Isle of Wight on a Sunday morning. She lived there with her parents and brothers and sisters till she was 15 years old. She met her husband Cress when she was on his barge with her family moving to Norfolk from Hobbs, during the five hour trip she went in the cabin to watch him work and they became friends. They were married three years later.
Daisy worked many jobs over the years, she worked in the Atlantic City knitting Mills, capping strawberries for Dulooney, she sold doughnuts, she took orders for Larkins catalogues, sold homemade Hominy to neighbors, sold candy and Christmas cards and then took care of apartments that she and Cress had bought. Cress and Daisy were married for seven years when their daughter Bernice was born. Cress died in 1946 and Daisy kept her apartment. She loved to visit with her brothers and sisters. She loved to sew. After she broke her right hip as she was leaving her apartment one day, Daisy could not go back to her apartment, she lived with her daughter Bernice, and she would go and visit family members from time to time. She lived with her daughter Bernice for ten years, until Bernice could not give her the care she needed around the clock and then she went to live in Virginia Baptist Retirement Home in Newport News, where she lived until her death at the age of 87. Daisy was a great lady, a faithful wife and a devoted Mother. She was proud of her heritage, and believed that being poor was nothing to be ashmed of.
