Annie “Luree” Daniels, 90

Annie “Luree” Daniels, 90, died peacefully at The Laurels of Hendersonville on Sunday, December 4, 2016 after a brief illness.

Ms. Daniels was born March 9, 1926 in Hendersonville to the late Alanzo Theophilus and Lenora Israel Sistare. She was a graduate of Greenwood High School, Class of 43. She married Alvin Vance “AV” Daniels, and began her married life as a homemaker, and later, loving mother, in Greenwood, South Carolina. Returning to Hendersonville in 1956, her small family of four welcomed many foster children into their home over the next several years. Ms. Daniels became a tireless caregiver to her chronically ill husband until his passing in 1978. She was fortunate to be able to share the last 32 years of her life with her adoring companion, Mr. Carl Taylor. After returning to school and obtaining her real estate license later in life, she and Mr. Taylor worked together for many years selling homes and welcoming newcomers to their community.

So many benefited from Ms. Daniels’ sweet nature, compassionate heart and giving spirit during her life. Her family (both those related by blood and those who were not), her animals, her gardens, all flourished under her care. Mother Theresa said “Let no one ever come to you without leaving better and happier. Be the living expression of God’s kindness: Kindness in your face, Kindness in your eyes, Kindness in your smile”. Anyone who ever saw her smile, most certainly left her presence better and happier.

In addition to her long-time companion, Ms. Daniels is survived by her daughters, Debbie Brevard and Pattie Owen and son-in-law Larry Owen; grandchildren, Tammy Brevard, Tina Brevard, Dena Wolfe, and Angie Owen-Killar; and great-grandchildren, Brandon Brevard, Blake and Savannah Morgan, Hunter Elms, Ethan and Rebecca Wolfe, and Katy and Ben Killar. Along with her loving husband, she was preceded one brother, Leon Sistare, two sisters, Lucy Taylor and Louise Jordan, and her son-in-law Larry T. Brevard.

A funeral service will be held at 2:00 pm on Wednesday, December 7, 2016 at Jacksons Funeral Service Chapel in the Pines with Rev. Gene Lockaby officiating. Burial will follow at Forest Lawn Memorial Park. The family will receive friends prior to the service beginning at 12:30PM. All are welcome to attend and celebrate Ms. Daniel’s life.

Memorial contributions may be made in her honor to St. Jude’s Children’s Hospital at or by mail to 501 St Jude Place, Memphis, TN 38105. The family would like to extend their sincere appreciation to Dr. Randy Tryon and to the caring staff at The Laurels of Hendersonville.

Jacksons Funeral Service is in charge of arrangements.
