Carolyn Sandra Zumbro Daniels

Carolyn Sandra Zumbro Daniels, 69, died at Vidant Medical Center, Greenville, on Friday, July 20, 2018.

“Sandy” was born in Charleroi, Pennsylvania, Oct. 30, 1948, to Joseph G. and Thelma E. Zumbro, of West Newton, Pennsylvania. She grew up with her two sisters, Mary E. Zumbro, of Belle Vernon, and Linda E. Danley, of Washington, Pennsylvania on the family dairy farm. She was a prize-winning member of the 4-H, representing American dairy farming in France in the International Farm Youth Exchange.

After graduating from Penn State, she became an English teacher.

On June 17, 1971, she promised to be a “loving and faithful wife” to Richard W. Daniels, a promise she wonderfully kept for 47 years. For 42 of those years, she bravely struggled against multiple sclerosis. After military and church services led the couple to live in England, and several places in the U.S., they finally moved to Wanchese.

They had no children, but she leaves behind her two sisters, a niece, nephews, and their children in Pennsylvania, and many beloved friends and relatives on Roanoke Island.

A memorial service of praise and thanksgiving to God will be held at 11 a.m. on Saturday, Aug. 18 at Manteo Baptist Church.

Twiford Funeral Home, Manteo is assisting the family with arrangements. Condolences may be expressed at www.TwifordFH.com.
