Rosa Lee Williams McDaniel, 95, departed this life on Thursday, July 24, 2014 at Tuomey Regional Medical Center, Sumter. Born April 28, 1919, in Lee County, she was the second of nine children born to the late David Williams and Rachal Moses Williams. She was raised in Lee County, where she spent her early.
She was united in marriage to George McDaniel, whom God called home in 1972. Ten children were born to this union, four of which preceded her in death, George Jr., Annie Mae, Mary Sue, and Eloise.
