Daury was a beautiful person both inside and out. She had never met a stranger and loved everyone she had ever known. Not only did she love people, she also adored her furry friends. Doxies were her favorite, but anything with fur was always welcome. She loved to play golf and was a member of the Big Spring Ladies Golf Association for many years. Her greatest joy was being with her family and friends. She was the greatest "Grammy" to 12 grandchildren and 18 beautiful great-grandchildren.
She is now at peace with her Lord and Savior and with those who were waiting for her in heaven. She will be missed by all whose lives she touched with her grace and love.
