Eva (Yves) Mae Daniel was born in Plaisance, LA, May 24, 1940, to the late Alfred Daniel, Sr. and Virginia Guillory Daniel. Her family moved to Lake Charles, LA, where they joined Immaculate Heart of Mary Catholic Church and later she joined and was baptized at Tarsus Bible Baptist Church under the leadership of Pastor Leroy Griffin. Eva was the co-owner of Remadoser Janitorial Service, Inc. where she served as the Office Manager. Additionally, she was formerly employed at TG&Y and Goldring’s, a boutique for women.

Eva was a beautiful-fashionista known for being stylish, well-dressed and wearing heels. She believed every outfit should have shoes that made the ensemble “pop.” She was an exceptional seamstress and could redesign any outfit and tailor it to her taste. In addition to enjoying sewing for her immediate family, Eva was also the executive chef for her family and could make a delicious meal out of anything. A family favorite was a special dish she named “Goulash,” which was a combination of leftovers from the refrigerator that was fit for royalty. Eva loved all of her family dearly and looked forward to their visits. No visitor left her home without viewing her photo albums filled with polaroids of family members. Additionally, she believed in reading and was a lover of words. She was an avid reader, enjoyed scrabble, crossword puzzles and took pride in teaching her grandchildren the definition of words.

Eva became a double Daniel when she married Charles Daniel, her loving husband of almost 54 years and caregiver for the last 10 years, who she is survived by. Additionally, she leaves to cherish her memories; daughter-niece, Edriena (Pastor Edward) Alexander, Jr.; bonus-daughter, Jeanette (Tony) Walker; son, Dennis (Trina Smith) Daniel; daughter-in-law, Rosie Jackson; granddaughter, Taylor Alexander; grandsons, Isaiah Alexander all of Lake Charles, LA and Dennis Daniel, Jr. of Humble, TX; and bonus granddaughters; Irrielle Walker, Gabrielle Papillion, Danielle Papillion, Kielle Walker; great-grandchildren Favour Boyd, Jonathan Daniel, Jaden Daniel, Jordan Daniel, Kingston Lampkins and Jyasi Dixon; goddaughters, Patsy Welch and Angela Broussard; and a host of nieces, nephews, and cousins.

She was preceded in death by her parents and her loving son, Gerard Jackson. She was the last living and baby of her siblings – sisters, Lula Daniel, Lou Bertha Daniel Papillion, and Lou Anna Daniel Broussard; her brothers, Ervin Daniel, Albert Daniel, Sr. and Alfred Daniel, Jr.
