Obituary of Daisy Mary Stagg

Daisy Mary Stagg

(December 25, 1931 - August 18, 2021)


Daisy Stagg of Camrose, Alberta passed away at the age of 89 years old, after a short battle with Cancer. 


Daisy was born on Christmas Day in 1931 on the farm near Grande Prairie to John and Margaret Dryer weighing only 2.5 lbs. They used the warming breadbox of the oven as an incubator, she was the youngest of nine children. 


In 1952, she married Donald Stagg and together they had three children. They moved from Grande Prairie to Camrose in 1960.


Daisy worked as head cashier at IGA but also she spent 23 years as a Health Care Aide at Bethany LTC. She loved getting back together for lunch with past Bethany co-workers.


They enjoyed their yearly camping and fishing trip at Carson Lake with her daughter Marilyn, Terry and Chris in their motorhome. Natalie and Ryan often joined them coming back home well fed and full of stories and memories.


In her retirement, she spent countless hours gardening and weeding their large garden, doing yard work, knitting, cross-stitching, pickling dills, carrots and relishes, and having garage sales. She made the best chocolate cream cheese muffins and loved to share her cooking and baking. 


She loved playing Bingo and traveling to different Casinos. Often stopping in to see Barb at work and have a coffee or out to Swiss Chalet for supper. 


Always together, Don and Daisy were avid card players and loved playing Cribbage at the Senior Centre. She also played Canasta and played in many tournaments and cherished the friendships she made along the way. In 2017, she was absolutely delighted when she got to sit in the second row at the Daniel O’Donnell concert. 


She enjoyed watching curling and keeping up with politics. She looked forward to getting her hair done every Wednesday and cards and coffee on Friday afternoons. She was always delighted to have a new great-grandchild in her arms and was always willing to help babysit with Shirley. 


She will be missed dearly by her husband Don Stagg; son Robert (Shirley) Stagg; son-in-law Terry Graf; grandchildren Barbara (Shane) Stagg, Natalie (Tim) Mills, Ryan (Yiling) Stagg, and Chris (Amanda) Graf; and great-grandchildren Rayna, Sarah, Aria, Logan, Matthew, Noah, and Wesley. 


She was predeceased by her parents John and Margaret Dryer; eight siblings; infant son Dean Stagg; daughter Marilyn Graf; and dog Darcy. 


The family would like to thank the staff and physicians at St. Mary’s Hospital for the amazing care they took of Daisy in her final weeks. 


At Daisy’s request, there will be no funeral held. 


Cremation has taken place.
