Janis Fielder Daniels


After spending almost 100 years of life with family, friends, students and her beloved Summerfield; Janis Daniels closed her eyes for an uninterrupted sleep on December 13, 2023.


Janis was born August 22, 1925, one of four daughters and one son to W.A & Selma Fielder in Summerfield. She married Andrew Jack Daniels on December 25, 1945. Janis taught school at Summerfield for many years, and even in Florida for one year. She graduated from Louisiana Tech, along with her three sisters-all became school teachers.


Janis was the last of her immediate family, and will be able to finally join them and love them the way she did while she was with us.

Janis leaves behind three nieces, Barbara Ann Williams, Jan Smith and Kim Stewart; three nephews, Al Fielder, Mike Zappa and Kerry Hanna; as well as, many grand and great-grand nieces/nephews, and an extended family of cousins and life long friends that she loved very much. She will be missed by all.
