I extend my deepest sympathy and condolences with the passing of Judy. May she rest in peace. May God bless all of you.

Carolyn Sheehan, Tybee Island, GA

So sorry to hear this. My thoughts and prayers are with the family as I grew up with the children. I did not know she had fallen ill. I know she and Jack had returned to Tybee to enjoy their retirement. I pray that she is resting in peace and that the family has accepted her step forward to be with the lord our God in eternal life.

Mike Hosti, Tybee Island, GA

I am so very sorry to hear about your Mom. She was such a special person to so many. I was glad to have spent time with all of you growing up on Tybee. She was a treasure and made everyone feel so loved. May God’s perpetual light shine upon her. Prayers for peace and comfort. Much love to all.

We are so very sad for the lose of Judy. She was always a sweet and kind person to our family. She and Jack are Teresa's God Parents. We loved her very much. We will be out of town today and tomorrow and regret we will not be able to attend the service. We will be keeping you all in our prayers. Let the perpetual light shine upon her. Love, Carolyn, Teresa and the entire Harper family.

I would like to extend my condolences to Judy’s loved ones. Take comfort by meditating on God’s many wonderful promises for a brighter future. “And he will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away.”- Revelation 21:4

Deepest condolences to the Daniels Family. I grew up with them on Tybee and remember Miss Judy quite well. She was a wonderful woman.

Jack and Family, So sorry to read about Judy. You all will be in our thoughts and prayers. Jackie and Charlie

Jackie and Charlie Brown, Tybee Island/Metter,

Mike, Maryann, Michael, Maggie, and Melissa, We love you all. May you find peace in knowing that Judy is in heaven and no longer in pain. This will be a tough time. Judy was such a wonderful woman. She helped us through a very hard time when our mom cracked her skull and was in the Savannah hospital for a week. She and your father were the sweetest couple letting me ( Chris) stay with them and giving our entire family peace in knowing that we didn’t have to worry about where to stay. They are the most hospitable people. Know that you are thought of and are praying for your peace. We love you all. Hugs and kisses to you all. Please give your dad an extra hug from me. We are all thinking of him and praying for him in this quick disease that took Judy away. Love you!

Judith Collins Daniels, 82, died September 3, 2019 in Pittsburgh, PA, where she was being cared for by her loving family during a brief illness.

Judy grew up in Savannah, GA, having attended Sacred Heart Parochial School and was a graduate of St. Vincent’s Academy in the Class of 1954.

She married John H. (Jack) Daniels in 1955 and they raised their family on Tybee Island before Jack’s career took them to Limo, OH, and then to Pittsburgh, PA for some 36 years.

Judy worked at St. Joseph’s Hospital in Savannah, and later at Allegheny General Hospital until her retirement.  Judy and Jack then returned to their home on Tybee Island in 2007 where she was happy to reconnect with family and friends.

One of the things Judy enjoyed most since her return to Savannah was her monthly “Collins Cousins’ Lunch” gatherings with her cousins and extended family.

The center of Judy’s life was always her family.  She enriched the lives of all those around her with her gentle nature and caring spirit.  Her quiet kindness gave her children and grandchildren an example to follow and memories to cherish throughout their lives.  She deeply valued her Catholic faith and Irish heritage.

Judy is survived by her husband of 64 years, Jack Daniels, and by their 6 children: Helen Marie Crowell (Bill), Judy King (Todd), John M. (Jack) Daniels (Kelly), Patricia McSorley (Frank), Mary Ann Cuddy (Mike), Kathleen Quiring (Jeff), and by her 12 grandchildren and 1 great-granddaughter.  She is also survived by her brother, John T. Collins (Ann Marie), and sister-in-law, Mary C. (Susie) Looney (Jack), and many nieces, nephews and cousins.

Judy was preceded in death by her parents, Walter and Helen Collins of Savannah and by her grandson, Colin Crowell.

Visitation will be from 5:00 p.m. until 7:00 p.m. with a rosary service at 6:30 p.m. at Fox & Weeks Funeral Directors, Hodgson Chapel on Monday, September 9, 2019.

A Mass of Christian Burial will be celebrated at 10:00 a.m. on Tuesday, September 10, 2019 in the Cathedral of St. John the Baptist with Fr. J. Gerard Schreck, Rector, Celebrant.

Interment will follow in the Holy Cross Section of Catholic Cemetery.

After the interment, the family and friends are invited to gather at the Savannah Country Club, Wilmington Island, for a reception to celebrate Judy’s life.

Remembrances are requested to St. Vincent’s Academy, 207 East Liberty St., Savannah, GA 31401, in lieu of flowers.
