She was a nurse most of her adult life in MA and RI until she retired, and then decided to settle in Florida in 2015. Daryl was a generous and caring person. She put others before herself. She was very active in foster care during the 70’s and 80’s and helped many troubled teens, by letting them into her home to live. She treated her foster children as she did her children. Daryl was an avid animal lover, especially German Shepherds. She was a member of almost every “save the _____” animal society that existed. Once in Florida, her hobbies were shopping and shopping and occasionally, shopping. She also enjoyed watching mystery and crime TV series, such as “Vera” and “Father Brown” which she had on repeat.
