Our mother, Mélida Yvette Daniels died on May 5th, 2022 after a battle with breast cancer. She was 49 years old. Our Mom was born October 6th, 1972, in Washington, DC and grew up in Panama. She was a wonderful mother who was always there when we needed her. She also had many friends and was well loved in Frisco, Texas, Columbia, South Carolina, and Panama. Our Mom never stopped fighting, no matter how sick she was. She was always determined. When anyone else would have broken, my Mom stayed strong.
Through her, we know what resilience and perseverance truly looks like. There was no quit in her. Just because she is no longer here, it doesn’t mean she lost her fight. Our Mom had a compassionate spirit. She was the light of the world. She always left a positive impact no matter where she was. Her passion was caring for others.
She is survived by her sons, Andrew Daniels and Aaron Daniels, both of Frisco, Texas; parents, John Catón and Myrna Atkinson; brother, John Catón; sister, Renee Catón; nieces, Sophie Catón and Pearl Catón; nephew, Steeven Catón; and Andrew and Aaron’s father, Clinton L. Daniels.
Mélida was preceded in death by her brother’s wife, Rosie Catón.
