A. Kathleen Daniel, 92 ½, moved her address to Heaven on November 24, 2018. “The trump shall resound and the Lord shall descend, ‘even so’ it is well with my soul.”
Amelia Kathleen was born May 27, 1926 in Meridian, Idaho to Robert and Pearl Daniel. They moved to Nampa not long after her birth where she lived, worked and died.
Kathy worked for the Union Pacific Railroad for 41 years. She worked many different jobs at the Railroad, one of which was a crew caller. In this job, she rode her bicycle to call the train-men who lived beyond 1 ½ miles from the office and didn’t have a telephone. Rain, ice, snow or heat, skinned knees and all, she was on her bike doing her job.
Kathy played the harmonica and attended the Yellow Pine Harmonica Contest three years. She liked to do crossword puzzles, reading, wrote poetry and had five dogs. She bought a 1962 Lincoln Town Car that Oregon’s Governor Hatfield owned.
She never had any children, but her nieces and nephews were special to her. She had several nieces and nephews “by choice”. She is survived by a brother, Ernest Daniel (96) who lives in New Mexico. Kathy is the last charter member of Church of the Open Door/Sovereign Grace Fellowship. “Harmonica players don’t die; they just blow away!”
Services will be held on Saturday, December 1, 2018 at 10:00 AM at Sovereign Grace Fellowship, 1311 6th St. S., Nampa, Idaho 83651. Burial will follow at Greenleaf Cemetery.
