Selina Louise Daniels
July 22, 1927 – June 15, 2011
Selina was born in Long Beach and grew up in Huntington Park. Her parents were Frank and Iva Reed. She went to high school at Huntington Park High School where she spent her senior year waiting for her certain GI to return from World War II. Selina married that GI and the love of her life, Arden Daniels, upon his return in 1947. They met and had their first date in 1941, when she was 13 and he 14. They spent almost 64 years of marriage together working, raising a family, loving and travelling together. She left this world after a diagnosis of melanoma cancer at 83.
Family was the most important focus for both Selina and Arden, having enjoyed being parents to two daughters: Nancy Daniels Lusby, married to Donn Lusby; and Lynda Daniels, married to Stephen Klein. Both daughters followed in their father’s footsteps becoming educators. Selina was grandmother to Mark Daniels Klein and Erica Beth Klein. She is also survived by her cousin Shirley Reed of Glendale.
