Dorothy Daniel

December 8, 1940 — December 11, 2017

Dorothy "Dody" Marie Spellman Daniel, passed away peacefully in her sleep, at home on December 11, 2017. She was 77.
Elder sister to John Spellman. Mother of three children: Michael (Beth) Elzy, Tony (Kristi) Elzy, and Deborah Elzy Wagers. Grandmother of six grandchildren: Kyle Elzy, Katie Nichter, Christian Jolly, Tabitha Jolly, Tony Elzy, Jr., and Emily Elzy, Godmother to Susan Hardest. Aunt to numerous nieces and nephews. Great aunt, cousin, and dear loving friend to too many to mention.
She was preceded in death by her father, Peter Martin Spellman, mother Mary Matilda Hornek Spellman and elder brother William Michael Spellman.
She was a kind and loving mother who was most proud of her three children and six grandchildren.
Federal employee for the Department of Commerce (Census Bureau, Jeffersonville, Indiana). Worked at Department of Army at Fort Knox, Kentucky, in Washington, D. C., and Fort Sill, Oklahoma, Army Corp of Engineers. Retired as a computer programmer analyst in Fort Sill, Oklahoma. Recipient of the Honorary Superior Civilian Service Award and Army Commander's Award for Civilian Service, amongst others.
Mom was a fearless soul who was young at heart and very outgoing. She was a compassionate woman who loved people, art, all animals, nature and just being outdoors. She was courageous, intelligent and witty but known, especially for her selfless giving nature. She loved our Lord and Savior with all her heart and had a great relationship with him.
Mom had a personal visitation ministry at the Providence Retirement Nursing Home in New Albany. She was a member of Bethany Christian Church in Charlestown, Indiana and a member of the Bethany Ladies Group.
We look forward to being with her again, even though we grieve we know there is no more suffering and she is now at peace.
A Memorial Service will be held at Bethany Christian Church, 9007 Highway 62 in Charlestown, Indiana 47111, on Saturday, December 16, 2017 from 10 am until time of service at 11 am to be officiated by Brother Jeff.
Expressions of sympathy may be directed to Bethany Christian Church.
