Our Mom, Janet Dee Daniels (Fleming) passed away peacefully with family at her bedside on June 16, 2017. Mom was born in Olympia, WA on July 7, 1942 to parents Carl & Evelyn (Lewis) Smith. Mom was raised in Yakima & went to Yakima High.  In 1960 she started her family of 5 children who she and Dad raised in Portland and Yakima. Mom worked various jobs at times throughout our childhood but her heart was always happiest at home caring for her husband, kids & grandkids. Mom was always reaching out to strangers with her big heart & sense of humor, she was an excellent cook, master house decorator, queen of the house & matriarch of the family. Mom was witty and knew how to make us laugh and laugh along with us.  Mom was an awesome Grandma and is playfully and affectionately known as 'precious' to her grandkids.
Mom leaves behind her brothers Larry Fleming (Nicky) & Butch Hodges (Lina), her 5 children, Vickie Daniels (Rob Schmidlin), Shannon McKinney (Danny), Jim Daniels (RaeAnn), Mike Daniels, Darci Collier (Harry), 11 grandchildren, 7 great grandchildren, sister in laws Barbara Fleming, Penny Daniels, Anne Marie Fenwick, 6 nieces, 4 nephews and many great nieces & nephews.  Mom was preceded in death by her parents & step mom Carrie Smith, our dad who was the love of her life Joe Daniels (1998), her daughter in law Susan Daniels (Mike) (2015), brother in law Dennis Daniels (Penny) 2009. 
Love you and miss you mom.  God put all of us with you for all the right reasons and we are grateful for having you in our life, as our mom & for all the lives you've touched.  You have passed on a 'precious' legacy to us all. The family would like to extend a special thank you to her special caregiver Ruthie Eagle who became a close friend to mom and our family and to Memorial Hospice who was always there for us and made sure mom was taken care of this past month.
