      "Annabelle Dixon Daniel, age 86, Class of 1939, passed from this world to her Eternal Reward on Saturday, May 28, 2006, after a six-week struggle with pneumonia.
      "Annabelle was born January 9, 1920, at Sitka, Ky. She was the third child of the late Rolla and Lillie Conley Dixon. She was preceded in death by her husband of 43 years, Buell, and her brother, Garland Dixon.
      "Annabelle is survived by her sister, Dorothy Schroyer, and 2 sisters in law, Aileen Dixon and Zona Songer, all of Paintsville. Also surviving is a host of friends and cousins, as well as several nieces and nephews and their families, all of whom she loved and regarded as her very own "adopted" children. They include: Roger Dixon of Michigan, Kenneth Dixon of Ohio, Marilyn Sue Chesney of California, Rick Daniel of Florida, Harry Daniel of Virginia, Phyllis Foote of Maryland, Sandy Dills of Ohio, Myrtle Gudot of Indiana, Jess Daniel Songer of Ashland, Walta Lee Preston and Marcia Helton of Paintsville.
      "Annabelle grew up in Paintsville and was educated in the Paintsville City Schools and graduated in 1939, then worked as a switchboard operator for Southern Bell in Paintsville. When she married her beloved Buell on February 11, 1940, he entered the service and she traveled extensively with him to Illinois and Florida. They settled in Allegan, Michigan, where Annie worked many years at North American Rockwell. Upon retirement, they spent winters in Florida until Buell's sudden death in 1983. They enjoyed traveling and always thought of others by sharing their experiences through pictures and stories.
      "Annie was blessed by two special Michigan families who loved her and watched over her. Her cousin Jimmy Ray Conley and his family lived near her and assisted her often with anything she needed done, and included in their family gatherings. They came to her aid many, many times when she was sick and were always only a phone call away.
      "Her second Michigan family was her nephew Roger Dixon's family. As Roger states, "Annie held me the day I was born in February 1942 in my grandmother's house in Paintsville. She did not have children of her own, so when we moved to Michigan, we became her "kids". Our children were her "grandchildren" and their children her "great-grands".
      "Since our parents lived in southern Ohio and Kentucky, Annie Granny, as she became known, and Uncle Buell often fulfilled the Grandparents' Day at school, attending various sports events and plays. After Uncle Buell's death, Annie Granny remained in the children's lives - traveling to see them play and coach sports, as well as going to birthday parties for the great-grands once they were born.
      "Annie always joined our entire family for Thanksgiving and Christmas celebrations and we included her on Mother's Day and other occasions when we got together for a big meal. She was a very special part of our lives ad the world is a little colder place with her absence.
      "Anne was saved, baptized and joined First Baptist Church, Paintsville, in the early 1940's. She became an active member of First Baptist Church, Allegan, Michigan, when she moved north, and has attended up until her recent illness.
      "Annie loved her family and friends unconditionally, never asking anything in return. She was always giving and serving and couldn't do enough to help others. Her life was a life of kindness and patience. Her shining spirit will be sadly missed by all who knew and loved her, but the memory of her loving kindness will live on in the lives of those who will sadly miss her."

He was married to the former Annabelle Dixon of Paintsville and was the son of Edgar and Frona Lemaster Daniel, deceased. In addition to his wife, survivors include one brother, Hubert Daniel of Johnstown, Ohio, and one sister, Mrs. Jess W. (Zona) Songer of Paintsville, as well as several nieces and nephews. Active in electronics, he was a former owner of the Allegan TV Cable System in Michigan and continued his work with TV cable associations throughout the country with equipment he designed and manufactured in Allegan.
