Remembering WNBA-Nashville Member Carolyn Daniel

Longtime member WNBA-Nashville member Carolyn Daniel lost her battle with leukemia recently. Fellow member Carolyn Wilson offers this remembrance:

“This is especially sad for me as much of my involvement with WNBA came through Carolyn. We were sister librarians working in several professional organizations. When I joined WNBA, Mary Lee Manier was president of our chapter and I had been in the organization just a short time when my husband, Larry, was diagnosed with cancer. For the next year and a half, I could barely keep my head above water so I was not very active. A few months after he died a group from WNBA, including Carolyn, came to see me. She was going into the chapter presidency and said she would do it if I would be her vice-president and program chair. I protested as I had a pretty full plate, but she convinced me I would like this group. And that was the beginning.

“For the first national board meeting, Carolyn had a conflict and asked me to go for her even though I felt completely unprepared. I went to national both years of Carolyn’s term and then my own terms and stayed on the board for nearly twenty years. Those years brought me so many dear friends. Carolyn was the consummate professional, highly esteemed. If you gave Carolyn a task it would be done well. I will miss here acutely. As was typical of Carolyn, she fought the leukemia and refused to give up until her body did it for her.”

WNBA-Nashville has made a memorial donation to honor Carolyn Daniel’s life.
