Gay Lynn Wolf McDaniel

GayLynn McDaniel was a loving wife, mother, grandmother, sister and friend.  She left this world at the age of 71 after a valiant battle with Parkinson’s disease surrounded by loved ones on July 27, 2022 in Houston, Texas.  She was born on July 25, 1951 to Evelyn and Henry Wolff in Houston, Texas.

On August 8, 1970 she married Gary Neal McDaniel and they recently celebrated their 50th wedding anniversary with close family.  Gay Lynn and Gary worked together over the last 50 years operating their own business, McDaniel Air Conditioning. Gay Lynn connected with every customer on a personal level and was the heart of the business.

Gay Lynn was passionate about her children and her grandchildren. She loved spending time with her family and friends, gardening, cooking and listening to music. She was very organized and was known for her ability to get things done!

Gay Lynn is preceded in death by her loving parents.  She is survived by her husband, Gary Neal McDaniel, her sister, Joy Lynn Zajac, her aunt, Ora Lee Levien, her two sons, Gary Hugh (and Michelle) McDaniel and Bryan Cecil (and Heather) McDaniel, her five grandchildren, Chris, Jack, Lauren, Sophia, and Sidney, niece Brittany Zajac, nephew Nicholas Zajac and numerous loved cousins, family and friends.
