Ruth E. Daniels, 84, of Bairdstown, passed away at 4:49pm on Tuesday November 19, 2019, at her residence.

She was born on September 3, 1935, in North Baltimore to the late Paul, Sr. and Goldie (Brown) Vaughn. She married Harold “Sam” Daniels on January 20, 1951, and he survives.

Ruth is also survived by her sons: Danny Daniels, Robert Daniels and William Daniels, all of Bairdstown; her daughters: Marlene Steiner of Bairdstown, Peggy Carles of North Baltimore, and Pamela (William) Pultz of Cygnet; her brothers: Paul (Ellie) Vaughn of TX, and Steve Vaughn of Malinta, OH; her sister, Linda (Richard) Mathias of Cygnet; and numerous grandchildren, great-grandchildren and great-great-grandchildren.

She was also preceded in death by her son, Eddie Daniels; her daughter, Scharlene Nesler; her brother, John Vaughn; and her sisters: Elminia Toth and Ila Ehlers.

Ruth was a homemaker, and was known by many for her baking. She attended the Bairdstown United Methodist Church. She enjoyed playing bingo, gambling, and her trips to the casino, but her greatest love in life was spending time with her family.
