Daisy was born November 12, 1918 in Fingal, ND to Benjamin and Harma (Johnson) Wadeson. She received a Bachelor's Degree in Home Economics from North Dakota State University in 1940. She met Donald Andersen at North Dakota State University (NDSU). They married in Macon, Georgia on January 5, 1943. Daisy and Donald operated a photography studio in Staples, MN for several years. She hand colored black and white professional portraits taken by Donald and other photographers. Daisy taught in both North Dakota and Minnesota before moving to Greybull, WY in 1965 to teach Home Economics at the high school. She loved teaching Home Economics and Family Studies to high school students. Many a student carries memories of life and times in and out of Daisy's classroom. A favorite discipline for misbehavior in Daisy's class was staying after school to clean the ovens! Daisy loved humor and had a lot of fun with her students. She once said, "What would life be like without some humor thrown in? Life isn't just serious business."

In the summer of 1972 Daisy began cooking at Rawhide Ranch Camps. Each summer she headed to the mountains to cook and bake for hundreds of campers. She loved to cook and be around people who appreciated her food.

After her retirement in 1983, she continued to support and be an active member of the Greybull community by cooking, mending, recycling, looking in on other senior citizens, and participating in Sacred Heart's church community.

She married Robert (Bob) Chapman May 24, 1985 in Worland, WY. Daisy and Bob were married for 19 years. They traveled extensively around the United States and the world, including Africa, Australia, New Zealand, Europe, Canada, and the Caribbean. Fishing, hunting, and snowmobiling in the Big Horns were favorite pastimes for Daisy and Bob. In the fall she loved to go to the mountains to cook for Stan and Mary Flitner's hunting camp. It was there that she met Bob. She traveled great distances to visit her grandchildren, to celebrate their achievements, and to watch them participate in their various sports. Her greatest pride was her seven children.

Daisy is survived by her husband, Robert Chapman of Greybull, WY; one sister, Rhoda Huber of Fingal, ND; and one sister-in-law, Shirley Andersen of Minneapolis, MN; one son, Kenneth and Norma Andersen of Fargo, ND; and six daughters, Phyllis Andersen of Spokane, WA, Mary (Andersen) and Joseph Mentek of Colorado Springs, CO, Maxine Andersen of Douglas, WY, Carol Andersen of Fort Collins, CO, Jacqueline (Andersen) and Richard Gamble of Irving, TX, and Andrea (Andersen) and Guy Houser of Bainbridge Island, WA; her 10 grandchildren of whom she was very proud of are Amy Mentek Rydland, Isaac Alcon, Mariah (Alcon) Andersen, Benjamin and Mathew Andersen, Angelique and Evan Gamble, Juanita Andersen, William and Wesley Houser; and one great-grandchild, Alexandra Rydland; and Robert Chapman's family whom Daisy loved; Dale and Marena Chapman, Carolyn and John Olin, also survive her; grandchildren include Tad Robert Chapman, Tera Pelfrey, Brian and Amanda DeRosa; and five great-grandchildren, Ezra Hanson and Afton DeRosa, Samantha Lynn and Rebeka Mae Pelfrey, and Gaven Dale Chapman.
