Jacqueline (Jacci) Rae McDaniel, age 65, passed away unexpectedly on August 31, 2016, at her home in Anna, TX.
Jacci was born in Van Nuys, CA, and moved in her late high school years to Atascadero on the central coast of California, where she met and fell in love with her husband, Robert (Bob) M. McDaniel. They were longtime residents of the central coast, spending most of their years there prior to moving to Texas a few years ago to live by their children and grandchildren.
Jacci’s greatest life accomplishment was the family that she created, raised, loved and adored. She absolutely loved to plan and host occasions with family and friends, often joining them with her hobby of cooking family favorites and new recipes. She loved to celebrate the holidays, her favorite being Christmas, and always decked out every inch of their home to show it. She and Bob shared a love of animals and welcomed many pets over the years in their home that were special and like children to them.
She was passionate about traveling and volunteering. Jacci traveled often with friends and family and spent the past decade putting her love for cruising to working part-time as a cruise specialist. She started her volunteer work at Bryan’s House in Dallas, TX, and then became very active with the Make-A-Wish Foundation on the central coast of California. She experienced so much joy being able to provide for those less fortunate.
Jacci always put everyone else first from her family to her friends. She cared so greatly for those close to her in her life and always kept her family connected. She lived a very happy life and it brought her joy to see those around her do the same.
Jacci leaves to cherish her beautiful memories, her husband of 47 years, Robert (Bob); son, R. Scott McDaniel, and wife, Trinity; son, Steven McDaniel, and wife, Natalie; daughter, Leanne McDaniel; sister, Janis Spears and husband, Rodney; grandchildren, Keirsyn, Matthew, Shane, Sydney, and Noah; and a host of other extended family and friends.
Jacci was preceded in death by her father, B. Ray Frederiksen; her mother, Betty L. Frederiksen; and her sister, Judith Craig.
Jacci’s family will be planning a celebration of life at a later time on the central coast of California. Please contact Leanne at email@example.com for more details.
