Florence Mary DeBate Daily entered eternal life on Thursday, January 1, 2015, at Ashton Parke Care Center in Texas City, Texas. She was born June 12, 1916, in Sorrento, Louisiana but lived in Galveston for the last 77 years. Florence loved to fish and was an avid sports fan – especially of the Dallas Cowboys, Rockets, and Astros; in fact, she loved any sport that had a ball in it! Florence worked for many places throughout her career, including Southern Select Brewery during World War II, Jack Tar Hotel Coffee Cove, Don’s Delicatessen, and for her son, Bob Daily, at the 12th Street Inn in Galveston. Florence was a terrific cook and made the best homemade pies and cake you ever wanted to eat.

Florence was preceded in death by her husband, Charles Albert Daily, Jr.; parents, Joseph Francois DeBate and Alice Brignac DeBate; son, John Robert Daily; 5 brothers; 6 sisters; 2 grandchildren; and 1 daughter-in-law.

She is survived by her four children: James E. Daily, Sr., of Hammond, LA; Wiley Daily of Texas City, TX; Doris D. Lee, of Sorrento, LA; and Alice Campbell and husband, John, of Gonzales, LA. She is also survived by 2 brothers and 1 sister, 19 grandchildren, 36 great grandchildren, 18 great great grandchildren.

Florence’s family will receive visitors from 5:00 until 8:00 pm, Tuesday, January 6th, at Malloy & Son Funeral Home, 31st & Broadway, in Galveston. A rosary will be held at 6:30 pm, led by Deacon John Pistone.

Funeral Mass will be 11:00 am, Wednesday, January 7th, at St. Patrick Catholic Church, 34th & Broadway, with burial following at Old Catholic Cemetery.

Florence’s family wishes to extend their gratitude to Joe Morel and Staff at Ashton Parke Care Center for their kind and compassionate care of Florence.

God rest her sweet soul. We are all better for having known her sweet kindred spirit. Her love of family is an inspiration for us all. Her unselfish sacrifice and hard labor for her family was because of her love of her family. We have been told there are many mansions in out fathers' home. I know she lives there. I hope to see her again some day. God rest her sweet soul.
