STANLEY — Norma Regina Daniels, 89, of Stanley passed away peacefully Thursday, March 8, 2018, at Wissota Place, Chippewa Falls.

She was born Dec. 12, 1928, at home on the family farm northeast of Stanley. She was delivered by her Aunt O’delia Heiting who arrived on a sleigh pulled by a team of horses. She was the fourth of six children born to William and Barbara (Heiting) Sorenson. She attended Pederson Country School and graduated from Stanley-Boyd High School in 1946. During her lifetime she worked for the Wisconsin Telephone Co., Farmers Store, Stanley-Boyd High School and the Northern Wisconsin Center.

She was fortunate to have fallen in love twice with a “Donald.” She married Donald “Toby” Rank Sept. 12, 1950 and they were blessed with three daughters. He passed away in 1982. She found love again with Donald “Red” Daniels and they married Dec. 17, 1988. They enjoyed many years of fishing, camping and traveling, until his death in 2013.

Norma enjoyed sewing and crocheting beautiful doilies and afghans. She was an excellent seamstress and made many of her and her daughters’ clothes. She enjoyed shopping for bargains, caring for her vegetable and flower gardens, canning, playing cards, lunches with the Red Hats and Northern Wisconsin Center ladies, outings at the casino, watching the birds (especially cardinals, because they mate for life), and spending precious time with her family and friends. She was a member of Holy Family Parish, where she served as a Eucharistic minister.

The family wishes to extend their appreciation to the incredible staff at Wissota Place and St. Josephs Hospice for their compassionate and excellent care and for making Norma (Mom) feel comfortable there.
