Daisy was a very determined and ambitious young lady. She worked at Monicals in Danville during her breaks from school. She was a graduate of the Danville High School Class of 2018. She attended college at the University of Illinois majoring in Biochemistry. Due to the loss of family members to cancer, Daisy's dream was to help find a cure for cancer. She enjoyed school and she was a brilliant student. She participated in Hispanic Leadership and she was a member of The National Honor Society.

Daisy was a loving sweet young lady. Many people would consider her to be shy but with a very stubborn side. Her smile and laugh would light up the room. To those lucky enough to get one, her hugs were the best. Those qualities will be missed so much.

Daisy was selfless. She volunteered for Special Olympics & The Veterans Sleep Out.

She loved spending time with her family and friends. Her favorite TV shows were Grey's Anatomy and Criminal Minds. She loved animals, especially turtles and her dog Luna.

She also enjoyed painting, art, & going to concerts. She recently discovered her love of traveling.

She was preceded in death by her Father in law Darrin Hightower Sr., her
great grandparents Richard & Mary Jo Boyer, Aunts Cindy Henschen & Kara Boyer, and Cousins Kristen Bernard, Abram Binkley & Rocky Boyer.

Daisy touched so many people. She will be deeply missed. She was a wonderful daughter, sister, granddaughter, niece, cousin & friend. She will always be loved & never ever forgotten.

A celebration of Daisy's life will be held on Saturday August 17, 2019 at 2:00 p.m. at Catlin United Methodist Church 106 W Vermilion St. Catlin Illinois 61817

I was Daisy's AP Chemistry teacher. She was a wonderful student and a very sweet-natured person. My greatest sympathy goes to the family as they endure this loss.
