Sybil was the matriarch of the McDaniel clan to whom she demonstrated and taught the values of unconditional love, forgiveness, and deep abiding faith in Jesus Christ, her personal savior. Always offering a listening ear, a kind word, and a good dose of humor, she was cherished by those who knew her.

Sherman McDaniel, Jr. Surviving children are daughter-in-law, Deanna McDaniel Dorman of Frisco, NC; James R. “Buddy” McDaniel and wife Heather, of Buxton, NC; Edna “Cissy” Nelson and husband Jim of Southport, NC; Darlene O’Neal and husband Morris of Norfolk, VA; and Cynthia Brodwater and husband Charlie of Staunton, VA and Frisco, NC. She leaves behind six grandchildren: Charlene Gilbert; Jason Gilbert (Christina); Joe Nelson (Blaize); Rachael Brackett (Jacob); Mary Joy McDaniel; and Brittany Rose O’Neal, and also two great-grandchildren, Darren Paul and Kane Gilbert.

A celebration of her life will be held at Lighthouse Assembly of God Church in Buxton on Saturday, October 19, 2019, at 2:00 pm with Reverend Eric Hinson officiating. The family will receive friends and relatives after the service at their home at 50560 NC Highway 12, in Frisco NC.

Condolence from Reid Mason on October 7th, 2019 9:18 pm

Buddy and the whole McDaniel family so very sorry to hear of your moms passing. She was a wonderful person and always made you feel at home around her. One of my fondest memories of your mom was she would always greet me with “hello Reid you’re just my speed” since I was a kid.
Whether she was visiting Buxton in when I was a kid or the last time I visited Sybil at her home in Va in the late 70’s and mid 80’s while stationed in little creek she always used that same greeting. I always thought of the McDaniel family as family.
She will surely be missed.
