Ethel Marie Daniels

Date of Death: February 1, 2015

Date of Birth: May 3, 1937


DURHAM - Ethel "Marie" (Carll) Daniels, 77, of Durham, Maine, died at her home on February 1, 2015, after a lengthy battle with breast cancer. She was born on May 3, 1937, the youngest and last surviving child of John William and Edith Louise (Lent) Carll of Durham.

Marie attended grade school in Durham in several one-room schoolhouses and graduated from Freeport High School in 1955. Marie loved animals and had several horses during her lifetime. She enjoyed being outdoors and doing farm chores. She also loved to bake and held family acclaim for her fudge and potato salad. She met and married a sailor stationed at Brunswick Naval Air Station, Francis Gordon "Dan" Daniels of Island Pond, Vermont, who predeceased her. She traveled with Dan and her two children to his assignments in Florida and Morocco. After his retirement from the military, Marie worked at Eastland Shoe in Freeport.

She is survived by a son and his wife, Dale and Bethany (Potter) Daniels, and a daughter, Denise Daniels, all of Durham. She leaves behind three grandchildren: Robert Daniel Peacher and his wife Christa Crosman of Brunswick; Kyle Gordon Daniels and his wife Ruth Ann (Steger) of Northfield, Vermont; and Shea Marie Brady of Durham. Also remaining are two great grandchildren, Braelynn Marina Peacher and Robert Theodore Peacher, of Brunswick. Many nieces and nephews will fondly remember her.

A graveside service and celebration of her life will be held in the spring.
