BIOGRAPHY

Daily was born in Nebraska, USA, on 15 October 1909 to Guy Lee Sevier (1875–1939) and Edith Garrett (1879–1965). She had at least two siblings: Ruby Strayer (1905–1979) and H. Marie Sevier (1907–1997).

Daily was married to Seth Julian Daily (1910–1985). The couple had five children, three of whom predeceased her; Barbara, Richard, and Susan.

In her 80s, Daily survived a car accident in California while on vacation with her two sisters. She stayed in the hospital there for several weeks and was later transported to a Texas hospital for rehabilitation. After her recovery, she sold her home and relocated to West Texas to be closer to her family. She survived colon cancer in her 90s without undergoing chemotherapy.
