Daniels, Impi Ilona  
Heaven is pleased to announce the arrival of Impi Ilona Daniels (also known as Mimi, Gram or Grandma D) on June 21, 2015, just 38 days shy of her 107th birthday. She was honored with bedside services shortly after passing at the Betty Dare Good Samaritan Center in Alamogordo. Impi was born in a Massachusetts cranberry field on July 29, 1908. Several months later, her parents returned to Finland where she was raised by her beloved grandmother. As a child, Impi enjoyed the countryside north of Helsinki where the freedom of the forest and responsibility of farm life helped build a strong, determined character. When battles were close during the Finnish Revolution of 1917, she helped by shielding younger children in the forest she knew so well. To her gentle credit, Impi eventually "let go" of her long time animosity toward Russians who she said "killed my uncle, ransacked the house, stole the blankets, and ate the cow." According to family lore, it was a village expectation that Impi would sail to America on her 18th birthday. She boarded the venerable Oscar II in the summer of 1926 and arrived at Ellis Island several weeks later. With preferential treatment due to her US birth certificate, she was quickly ushered to a city cab and her first job as a Finnish maid in the United States. Over the years, Impi cleaned rooms at Princeton University and Princeton Seminary. She became friends with Albert Einstein who often joined her while walking to work on Mercer Street in Princeton. She later reported that Dr. Einstein was "friendly, funny, and a little smart." She became well-known among elite families in the Princeton-New York area as an honest and hard-working housekeeper. Over the years, employers included Robert F. Goheen, John O'Hara, Arthur Miller and Marilyn Monroe. She held them all in high esteem with many compliments regarding fairness and kindness. She credited them for the employment that enabled her to raise four sons. Impi is now survived by three of those sons, their families, and their children's families. Celebrating their mother's long, storied life are John and Betty Daniels of Smithville, Tennessee, Conrad and Rosalie Daniels of Hamilton Square, New Jersey and Bob Daniels of Cloudcroft, New Mexico. She is also survived by eleven grandchildren and 17 great-grandchildren. Impi was predeceased by her beloved son, Richard and great-grandson, Gianni. She was also predeceased by four brothers, five sisters and husband Conrad Daniels, who spent most of his married years on the family farm in southern Georgia. In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions may be made to Betty Dare Good Samaritan Center; 3101 N. Florida Ave. Alamogordo, NM 88310 or to the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation online at JDRF.org. Impi says, "Thank you, thank you, thank you! And Goodnight." Direct cremation will take place under the care of PCS Direct Cremation Services. To sign the online register book, please visit www.cremation-pcs.com

Neal, Haleigh Ann  
On Saturday, June 20, 2015, our beautiful Haleigh Ann Neal left this earth to join her grandmother, Virginia Neal, and grandfather, Bernard Jacob, and became part of the heavens. We feel her presence now in the sunsets and the starlight of her vast New Mexico sky and feel her nourishing us in the rain she loved. Haleigh, the first sister in a fiercely close family, was born on February 28, 1996 at 1:01 p.m. to be followed at 1:02 p.m. that same day by her sister Megan Marie, and two years later by her baby sister, Sydney Jordan, to her adoring parents Chris and Kathi Neal of La Luz. She loved her family more than anything and had no patience for fakeness. Our unselfish Haleigh was caring and loyal to her family and friends. She was always there for others, offering laughter and warmth even in moments when she might be at her lowest. Her Zen-like, peaceful soul and fun loving nature gave us immeasurable comfort and light. Haleigh was a talented writer and artist who adored her animals. Now we'll feel her words and see her drawings in the desert and mountains she loved to hike, feel her presence along with the animals who walk this world with us. Though there is a little less light in the world now, Haleigh never has to grow up. She will forever remain a teenager. Aside from those already mentioned, Haleigh is survived by her grandfather, James Neal, of La Luz; her grandmother Marie Jacob of Colorado; her aunts Darlin Neal of Florida and Sue Jacob of Colorado; her uncles Jamie, David and Joey Neal of New Mexico and John Jacob of Colorado; loving extended family Josh Storm, Christian Gardin of La Luz; and numerous cousins. Cremation has already taken place at PCS. A celebration of Haleigh's life will be celebrated at a later time. The Neal family has entrusted their loved one to the care of Alamogordo Funeral Home to handle the arrangements. To sign the online register book, please visit www.alamogordofuneralhome.org

Pyle, Victoria M. (Vicky)
