Marie B. Daly
Marie B. Daly, 73, of Indianapolis passed away last week after a long battle with emphysema. Born in Michigan, Mrs. Daly was a very active amateur sportswoman excelling at golf, skiing, figure skating and biking prior to the onset of her illness. In the 1950's she biked across Michigan, traveled to Cuba, and lived in Los Angeles for a year. She then worked at Dow Corporation where she met her future husband and lifetime love Ed Daly. She lived and traveled with her husband and children extensively throughout Europe. Marie was intelligent, warm, tenacious and lively. She has the love and respect of her children who miss her very much. Mrs. Daly is survived by her son, Timothy, her daughter-in-law Melanie, and her daughter Ann. She is also survived by her beloved sister Irene in Michigan, and extended family in Michigan, Ohio, and Illinois. The children wish to thank Mr. Stone and Ms. Johnson of Indianapolis for their assistance during the last years of her illness. Mrs. Daly lived at home with her children until her passing. In accordance with Mrs. Daly's wishes, there will be a private ceremony involving only her children. While she long ago ceased involvement with any organized religion, Mrs. Daly was a Christian throughout her life, and will be in the thoughts and prayers of friends and family. The family requests that instead of flowers, well-wishers send donations in her name to either the Salvation Army, The American Lung Association, or The American Cancer Society. Arrangements handled by Shirey Brothers Washington Memorial Chapel.
