Carol June Kuntz was born November 4, 1935, to John Carl and Elizabeth (Krick) Kuntz in Aberdeen, SD. This is the area where she was raised and attended public schools, graduating from Aberdeen Central High School with the Class of 1954.
Carol was united in marriage to Edward J. Daly in Aberdeen on November 23, 1957. The couple made their home on the family farm near Columbia, SD. Carol later became employed with Control Data in Aberdeen and worked there for 19 years until it closed. Then, she and Edward enjoyed spending winters in Yuma, Arizona. Carol and Edward raised two children and shared over 41 years of marriage before he passed away on January 4, 1999. Carol continued to reside on the family farm near Columbia until the time of her death.
Carol’s pride and joy was her only grandson, Ryder. Carol enjoyed playing Bridge and being a “Red Hatter” (member of the Red Hat Society). While wintering in Arizona, she especially enjoyed hosting happy hours for her friends. Carol also loved cooking and baking for others and will be remembered for her delicious butterhorns. Carol was a member of SEAS Catholic Church in Groton.
