In Loving Memory of Marie Louise McDaniel: 1936-2022


Marie Louise (Wall) McDaniel was a loving wife, mother to four, grandmother to 13 and great-grandmother to 10. She passed away on Feb. 19, 2022, surrounded by loved ones. 

She was born on May 16, 1936, in Seattle, Washington. She graduated from Ballard High School. During her teenage years, she met her future husband, Ernie McDaniel, in Index, Washington. They married on Sept. 17, 1955. 

Marie loved spending time in the kitchen baking, creating pies and treats for her family. When she wasn’t homemaking, Marie enjoyed traveling, camping and fishing. She would never turn down a card or board game and always played to win. Marie was fiercely dedicated to raising her children and put her family above all else. 

Marie is survived by her husband, Ernie McDaniel, and four children, Lynn (Bill) Sample, Karen (Mike) Conley, Steve (Stacey) McDaniel and Brian (Jodi) McDaniel. 

She will always be remembered as a loving mother and grandmother, a woman of God and a devoted wife. Her presence will be missed by all. 

A celebration of life is scheduled for 11:30 a.m. on March 13, 2022, at the Yelm United Methodist Church, 408 Second St. SE, Yelm, Washington. To honor her, please wear a touch of red, as it was Marie’s favorite color. In lieu of flowers, please donate to the Yelm United Methodist Church on her behalf.
