Daisy Mae was called home to her final resting place by our Lord and Savior on May 12, 2022, in Greensboro, North Carolina.
Daisy was born November 9, 1939, in Steubenville Ohio. At the age of 9, she moved with her family to Newark, New Jersey. After completing the 8th grade, she went on to Arts High School for the Performing Arts in Newark, New Jersey. During her lifetime she worked various, different jobs. She was a Hairdresser/Barber, Accountant, Midwife, and School Bus Driver.
In 1961, she married Chester Phillips and had her eldest daughter, Tonya Lynn. Later she met Charlie Griffin (deceased) and had her youngest daughter, Lisa Charlene.
Later, in 1984 Daisy, married the love of her life Mr. William (Billy) Richardson (deceased). In 1992 Daisy along with her husband William dedicated their lives to God, were baptized, and joined the Jehovah's Witness Church for spiritual guidance.
Watching a good western movie, watching golf on the television and crocheting were things she enjoyed doing. She was soft-spoken and sassy at the same time. A very attractive woman who enjoyed looking her very best. Her favorite song is “Lady in Red” by Chris De-burgh, and her favorite flower -Sunflowers of course - are bright and sunny just like her. She was dedicated to raising her children and her grandchildren. The family was something she cherished. Life was something she enjoyed. Love is what she gave, and she will truly be missed by all that knew her.
Daisy is preceded in death by her parents Mae Nolan (mother), Johnny Nolan (father), Edith Dolores Sparrow (sister) and James Lee Nolan (brother).
She is survived by two daughters Tonya Lynn Phillips and Lisa Charlene Griffin. Five grandchildren: Taneequah Griffin, Sierrah Griffin, Quaterrya Phillips, Easley Earl Jones Jr., Yasin Griffin. Seven great-grandchildren: Jonique Griffin, Kayvon Banks, Khyree Griffin, Ivy West, Aiden Wooton, Asher Jones, and Ava Jones.
She leaves to mourn her Aunt Catherine Williams, her sister- in law and dearest friend Carol Nolan, her sister-in-law Helen Richardson, her two Godsons Brian Whitten and Charles Bell, and a host of nieces, nephews, cousins, and friends.
We loved you, Daisy Mae Richardson! Our hearts are heavy from seeing you go but we know you are resting in eternal peace now. With all our love, you are forever in our hearts and prayers.
