Deb was born in Burlington, Iowa, to LaMonte Duke and Shirley Duke Simms on March 13, 1951. She graduated from Notre Dame High School and attended the University of Iowa. Deb married David J. McDaniel on April 24, 1982, at Holy Family Catholic Church in Davenport. Together, they made their home and raised their family in Rock Island. Their children are Rachel Hayden and Logan and Tyler McDaniel.
Deb's first career took her to regional visual merchandising director for several Younker's stores. After retiring in 2003, she immersed herself in volunteer activities, especially with Junior Board of Rock Island, Alleman Heritage Ball and Quad City Arts. Deb also served on the board for the Autism Society of the Quad Cities. She turned volunteerism at Quad City Arts into a second career as Festival of Trees staff director.
Deb's great passion and talents in life were to serve family, friends and community. She was a tireless worker for the charities she cherished and valued her many friends. Her family, including her parents, siblings, extended family and, of course, her beloved husband, children and grandchildren, came first. Family challenges only made Deb a stronger person.
In addition to her husband, children, Rachel (Brandon) Hayden, Logan (Mindy) McDaniel and Tyler McDaniel and grandchildren, Carter, Nolan and Elijah Hayden, Dylan McDaniel and Kingston Haynie, Deb is loved and will be remembered by her parents; sister, Karla (Dennis) Standard; brothers, Greg (Lisa) Duke, Kevin (Janetta) Duke and Mike Duke; and many aunts, uncles, nieces, nephews, cousins and countless friends. Preceding Deb in death were her grandparents; infant brother, Stevie; little sister, Linda; and uncles, Jerry Miller and Loren Much.
