JEAN TRUSTY DANIEL Jean Trusty Daniel died peacefully on February 24 at age 97 at her home in Santa Fe, New Mexico. Jean grew up in Tulsa, Oklahoma, attended Randolph-Macon College and graduated from the University of Missouri where she was President of her sorority, Pi Beta Phi. She was a journalist with columns in several Kansas City papers over the years and she was a lifelong watercolor painter. Ever since she learned, as a toddler, that she could float vertically she loved being around water: pools, lakes, and oceans; she was an avid swimmer. She continued with her water aerobic classes at Quail Run until a few weeks before her death. Jean was preceded in death by her husband, David Trusty, in 1968 and her husband William Daniel in 1999. She is survived by her children: Michael, Jean, Scott, and Ann; their spouses, six grandchildren and four great-grandchildren.
