Longtime Worland resident Daisy Fay Brazelton, 85, died April 3, 2014, at the Washakie Medical Center in Worland.

Daisy was born on Oct. 27, 1928, in Buffalo, Mo., a daughter of Minnie (Bellmyer) and Paul Personette. She moved to Worland with her family in 1935 and attended schools in Worland.

She met Robert Paul Brazelton and fell in love with him. She followed him to Fort Lewis, Wash., to marry him on July 7, 1946. Following his discharge from the Army, the couple returned to Worland, where Robert worked for Marathon Pipeline Co.

The family subsequently lived in Greybull from 1951-55, then moved to Grass Creek, where they lived until 1969, when they were transferred to Powell. In 1973, the family returned to Worland where they finally retired.

After raising her four sons while living in Powell, Daisy worked for J.C. Penney Co. as a sales clerk and also drove a beet truck during harvests. She continued working for Penney’s after moving to Worland and also drove a beet truck during harvests in Worland.

Her hobbies included making silk flower arrangements, decorating her home for Christmas and collecting hummingbird figurines. She also was a campground host in the Big Horn Mountains for several years and enjoyed camping.

Daisy was a member of the First Southern Baptist Church in Worland and a member of the Worland Garden Club.

She cherished the time she could spend with her family, especially her grandchildren and great-grandchildren.

She was preceded in death by her parents, by her husband Robert in 2006, and by her son Keith Brazelton.

Daisy is survived by her sons Larry (Judy) Brazelton of Glendora, N.J., Roger (Nora) Brazelton of Powell, and Steve (Tracy) Brazelton of Worland; by her grandchildren Ann (David) Weitzel of Elk Township, N.J., Michael (Kelly) Brazelton of Deptford, N.J., Kary (Aaron) Losey of Powell and Derek Brazelton of Casper; and by seven great-grandchildren.

A memorial service was held Monday, April 7, at First Southern Baptist Church in Worland.
