Barbie was born September 1, 1964 in Wharton, Texas. She graduated from Klein High School and Texas A&M University. Barbie was Treasurer of Daniel Resource Development where she worked with her two brothers, Bruce Daniel and William B. Daniel, IV and her father, William B. Daniel III. Barbie gave tirelessly of her time to her church, was an active parent and supporter of The John Cooper School, served as a counselor and camp director for The Pioneer and Discovery Conferences of The Hus Encampment and was an avid fan and faithful supporter of the Texas A&M family. The role Barbie loved and excelled at above all was that of Mother and Wife, constantly being involved with her children's activities and enrichment. It was uplifting just to see her enjoying her children! This rare, sweet person, in her too short time, brought joy and happiness to the many lives she touched. Barbie leaves to mourn her passing her devoted husband Glenn L. Fojtasek, and loving children, Zachary and Pamela. She is also survived by her parents William and Barbara Lee Daniel, her brother William and his children Robyn, William V, Alex, Sean and Rayne; brother Bruce, his wife Shonnie and their children Benjamin, Katie and Mitchell; sister Lee Ann McComas, her husband Wayne; and Natasha Lee Daniel.

I am shocked and saddened to learn of the loss of my childhood friend Barbie Daniels. We had some great times in Girl scouts and growing up back in Memorial Northwest. She had a wonderful smile and always made me laugh. Please accept my condolences.

I remember Barbie from the Crosby Brethren Church and she and Glenn were a most delightful couple who always had a smile or greeting for me. My thoughts and prayers are with the entire family during this time.

My deepest sympathy goes out to the entire family. I know from personal experience that there are no words I can offer that will serve as comfort during this time. That said always hold on to the memories - those will never die. Be thankful for the time that God blessed you with her in this world.
It is our hope that Barbie knew Jesus Christ as her personal saviour. Please know that the De La Torre family will be praying for you.

Dear Glenn, Zachary, and Pamela: our prayers are with you during your time of loss. I will always remember Barbie by her quick smile, wit, love of her children, and her "techno gadgets." She will be greatly missed. Each time a ray of sunshine touches your face, Zachary and Pamela, remember your mom is smiling upon you from heaven.

I'm still in shock from this horrible and senseless tragedy. I knew Barbie from The Brethren Church and she was a wonderful person who shared herself with many young people throughout the Hus Encampment Youth program. I, along with hundreds of other people will always remember her with an infectious and beautiful smile, great sense of humor and wonderful personality. To the family - May those memories and knowing that she touched so many lives help give you some sort of peace during the weeks and months to come.

Barbie was always a fun, loving, and kind human being. Her smile could brighten a room whenever she entered it, and was infectious. I will miss my cousin. God bless you and keep you and make His face shine upon you.
