Cynthia Sue Herrington Daniel, 68 of Shreveport, Louisiana, passed away, Sunday, March 24, 2013 after fighting a courageous battle with cancer at her home surrounded by her loving family.

Cynthia was born April 3, 1944 in Florien, Louisiana, the daughter of the late Willie and Rosa Lee Herrington. After high school graduation, she moved to Shreveport. There she started life with her high school sweetheart and husband, Nickey Daniel. God only knew what a wonderful life that was in store for these two down home country folks.
Among so many talents, Cynthia was an artist. For 44 years as a cosmetologist in her home, she created not only masterpieces with many ladies hair, but she also created friendships that would stand the test of time. Her personality engulfed people as she listened, cared and poured her heart and soul into all those who knew her. She was a true "Steel Magnolia". It did not matter whether she was painting ceramics, making jewelry, digging in her flower beds or turning trash into treasure, she was always multitasking as she worked from her home so she could devote as much of her loving time to her husband, her daughters and later her grandsons.
A devout and faithful Christian, Cynthia was an active member at Broadmoor Baptist Church where she served as the wedding coordinator for approximately 15 years. She will be fondly remembered by many brides and their families whom she patiently guided through their "oh so special days."
No matter how busy life became, Cynthia always had time for her family. Her favorite place to get away was "Pleasant Place", in Florien, LA. After years of restoring her grandfather's home, it became her heaven on earth. There, she hosted family gatherings and spent time with her parents and sisters who she dearly loved. The city never took the country out of this girl.
Cynthia was preceded in death by her parents, Willie and Rosa Lee Herrington of Florien, LA.
Left to cherish her memory is her loving and devoted husband of 49 years, Nickey Wayne Daniel; daughters, Amanda Daniel Phillips and husband, Carl and Shannon Daniel Cory and husband, Chris; grandchildren, Daniel Pierce, Dalton Pierce, Kaylie Cory, Caleb Phillips and Lauren Phillips; sisters Evon Thaxton and husband, Gerald Wayne and Rosa Nell Skinner and husband John; a host of nieces and nephews whom she loved immensely as well as a host of friends.
