Funeral tomorrow for Glenn Daily, 95

DOWNEY - Downey resident Glenn Daily has passed away. He was 95. He was born in New Hampton, Missouri on March 7, 1914. He was the second born to Fred and Frona Daily, one of 12 children. His early years were spent helping his family in the farming community in northwest Missouri. Daily became a successful farmer. During those years he was an active board member of the hospital, school, bank and church. The cold winters turned his attention to Southern California, where his brothers and sisters resided. He sold his 1,800-acre farm and everything that went with it and his family packed up and moved to Southern California. Daily joined his brothers in their family business, where he established a new career path of apartment investments. During this time he was still interested in community involvement, and became an active member at Downey United Methodist Church and Downey Community Hospital. He also participated every year in the Downey beautification contests. He is survived by two children, daughter Anna Marie (Bob) Brown, and son Ron Daily; grandchildren, John (Lisa) Petit, Kamryn Marie (Chloe) Ann, Ted (Janet) Petit, Megan Daily, and Michelle (Joshua) Daily. A viewing will be held today at Miller-Mies Mortuary from 9 a.m. to 8 p.m. The funeral service is scheduled for tomorrow at 11 a.m. at Downey United Methodist Church. Graveside services will follow at 2 p.m. at Rose Hills Memorial Park in Whittier. In lieu of flowers, the family requests donations to the Downey Methodist Youth Group.********** Published: March 27, 2009 - Volume 7 - Issue 49
