Frances Turner Daniel, 88, formerly of Centennial, passed away Sept. 23 after many years of battling Parkinson's Disease.
She was a graduate of Oberlin High School in Oberlin, Ohio, in 1947, and earned her bachelor of science degree from Acadia University in Wolfville, Nova Scotia, Canada, in 1951.
She married Orrel A. Daniel in 1951, who preceded her in death (2007). The couple first lived in Boulder, where Fran worked for the National Bureau of Standards. The couple relocated in Brighton in 1953 where the marriage welcomed three children: Robert (ne : 1957), Caroline (nee : 1959) and Arthur (ne : 1962), all of whom survive her.
In 1975 the family moved to Littleton. Frances was a member of PEO, the Paint Box Club, a variety of community clubs and a member of Calvary Baptist Church in Denver.
Fran's talents included entertaining, painting, gardening and trying to improve her golf swing. Over the years, she was also an active volunteer – room mother, den mother and troop leader, organizer of many Vacation Bible Schools and later serving Children's Hospitals in both Denver and Scottsdale, Arizona, through their Auxiliary organizations such as the consignment shop La Cache.
As an empty-nester, Fran was co-owner, board member and investment banker of Metropolitan State Bank in Commerce City.
Fran and Orrel traveled extensively through the United States, Europe, and Asia.
Her parents, Dr. William Henry and Edna Wood Turner; three sisters: Katharine Turner Davis, of Redmond, Washington, Virginia Turner Liao, of Pasadena, California, and Anne Turner Sanborn, of Summit, New Jersey, preceded her in death
Survivors include five grandchildren - Chloe, Robin, Maris, Calyn and William; a daughter-in-law Blythe (Arthur); several in-laws; and numerous nieces and nephews.
She will be remembered as a supportive and loving wife and mother and a woman of intellectual curiosity about a wide range of topics.
Her memorial service will be held at 2 pm at Calvary Baptist Church, 6500 E. Girard Ave., Denver, with a reception to follow.
The family thanks the Suites at Someren Glen and Compassus Hospice Care for their dedication and service to Fran's final days.
