Obituary for Carol Daly (Smith)

Carol Daly (Smith)
Carol Leneille Daly, age 91, formerly of Janesville, died peacefully on Wednesday, July 26, 2017 at Froedtert Hospital in Wauwatosa, WI, with her two children, Jeff and Nancy, by her side. She was born October 12, 1925 in Little Rock, AR, the only child of Carroll Levier and Elsie Elberta (Butler) Smith. When Leneille was a young girl, they moved to Chicago, IL. To supplement her father’s income during the Depression, Leneille remembered her father selling his “bathtub gin” out of their small apartment during Prohibition. Later, the family relocated to Janesville, WI where her father owned and operated Farley Feed Company on Main Street. Leneille studied ballet in Chicago, and prior to marriage enjoyed ballet dancing.
Leneille married Kenneth William Daly on February 1, 1947 at St. Mary’s Church in Janesville. They spent the next 24 years in Janesville, where Ken happily ran the Plumbing and Heating department at Sears. Leneille had several secretarial jobs while the children were growing up, but her passion became theatre. She was a regular at Janesville Little Theatre for over twenty years. In 1972, Leneille and Ken retired to Hot Springs Village, AR, where they both enjoyed tennis, golf, and the many friends they made. Returning to the Madison area in 1978, they became involved in Property Management, until Ken’s death in 1980. Leneille continued to pursue this career until she retired during the 1990s. Leneille was an avid sports fan and enjoyed watching baseball and football with her son.
She is survived by her son Jeff of Milwaukee, daughter Nancy of Keene, NH and Nancy’s children: Leneille (Justin) Howe of Swanzey, NH and their children, Jaxon and Jillian; Lucinda (Jerimiah) Kirk of Martha’s Vineyard, MA and their children, Graysen and Estella; Molly (Clark) Linn-Wulf of Keene, NH and their daughter, Madison; and Kenneth Linn of Exeter, NH and his twin sons, Kenneth and Steven. Leneille is preceded in death by her parents and loving husband of 33 years, Kenneth Daly; Jeff’s wife Kathy, and Nancy’s husband David.
A visitation will be held on Monday, July 31, 2017 from noon until 1:00 PM at the Whitcomb -Lynch Funeral Home, followed by a 1:30 PM graveside service at Oak Hill Cemetery.
