Daniels, Patricia “Diane”– 79 a longtime resident of Ventnor, went to heaven on Friday, July 7, 2017 to be with her Lord and Savior. She passed peacefully in her home surrounded by her family.

She served faithfully at St. John’s By-the-Sea Church teaching Vacation Bible School for over 25 years, singing in the choir and assisting with many special programs. She successfully operated her own business at home selling Shaklee food supplements.
She loved living at the shore and going to the beach with her family and friends. People were drawn to her. Always smiling, laughing, and enjoying life to the fullest. She kept life simple…God, family and friends. Her biggest joy in life was cooking for her family or anyone else who showed up at the last minute! Nothing made her happier than seeing her family gathered around her table. She was the heart of the family. She was a very caring and considerate person and her family meant the world to her. We are sure her laughter is being heard echoing through Heaven as it did on earth.
