Velma J. (Jean) Daly, 88 of Scottsdale, Arizona, passed away peacefully at Maravilla Assisted Living in Scottsdale.

Jean was a native Iowan but made Arizona her home for over 30 years. She was preceded in death by her husband Timothy G. Daly. She was born November 17, 1935 in Des Moines, Iowa to Celeste J. and Vivian Herkes. She was one of three children that included brothers, James and William. Jean was a graduate of St. Joseph’s Academy in Des Moines. She married her high school sweetheart, Tim Daly on October 15, 1955. Jean was an avid golfer and enjoyed getting out on the golf course with her many friends. Jean was a proud mother of three children. Once she became a mother, she devoted herself to her family completely.

She is survived by her three children, Jeffery Daly (Theresa) of Scottsdale, Diane Daly New (Thomas) of Pinehurst, North Carolina; and Jay Daly (Patricia) of Ankeny, Iowa. Jean was a loving grandmother to five children and great-grandmother to six. A family service will be held at Glendale Cemetery on February 12, 2024.
