    Dora R. Daniels, 90, passed away from Covid-19 complications on December 15, 2020. She was a resident at The Centers at St. Camillus nursing home. Dora was born in Syracuse on May 11, 1930. She was a proud 1948 graduate of North High School. She loved dancing the night away at places like Drumlins during the 40’s and 50’s. The caption with her class yearbook photo reads “Chalk up another senior for the Business World”. She retired in 2014 after enjoying a 50 year career working in the accounting and tax preparation field. Prior to the nursing home, Dora resided in the Kirkville area and was a member of the Fyler Community Church and past secretary/treasurer of the Fyler Settlement Cemetery Association. Dora was a member of the Town of Sullivan Leisure Time Club. Dora was predeceased by her beloved husband, Verne R. Daniels, in 1984. Surviving are her daughter, Debbie Galek (Joe Watkins) of Kirkville, her son, David Balitz (Aileen) of Jamesville, her niece, Marlene Sauer (Robert) of McMinnville, TN; her grandchildren, Chrystal Corbett (Greg) of Manlius, Chelsea Galek (Shane Cooper) of Marcellus, Robert Galek (Ashley Sage) of Kirkville, and Carly Galek of Bondi Junction, New South Wales, Australia; and her great grandchildren, Skylar Corbett and Brooklyn Corbett. She was dearly loved and will be deeply missed by her family and friends. Dora greatly appreciated all the caring and compassionate staff at St. Camillus, especially during these difficult times. In her time there she enjoyed the camaraderie and support they gave her. She especially enjoyed playing word games in the morning and bingo in the afternoon. The family would like to thank everyone at St. Camillus for providing Dora with loving care for the past few years. Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, all services will be private. In lieu of flowers, please consider a memorial contribution to support the work of the frontline heroes at The Centers at St. Camillus, 813 Fay Road, Syracuse, NY 13219.
