Carol L. Daly (nee Wallen)


age 85, peacefully drew a last breath on January 13th, 2023, her daughters at her side. With courage and grace, Carol endured Progressive Supranuclear Palsy (PSP) until no longer possible. PSP, a rare neurodegenerative disease, is too often misdiagnosed as Parkinson’s - it is not. Carol was an active member of Palo Verde Patchers quilting club, the Sun City West Beaders Club, and the West Valley Genealogical Society. In 2021, she moved to Minneapolis, MN, to be near family. Funeral and interment, Desert Palms Presbyterian Church, SCW, spring 2023. Full obituary to follow. Carol, in service to a greater good, provided data to PSP research, Mayo / FL. Please consider donating directly to the organization or Carol’s family will forward any offerings sent to Kate Daly c/o MN Cremation Society, 7110 France Avenue South, Edina, MN 55435. Guestbook;
