July 22, 1929 – April 27, 2020
Daisy I. Dennis, 90, of Independence, passed on Monday, April 27, 2020 at St. Mary’s Medical Center in Blue Springs, MO.
Daisy was born July 22, 1929, to Louis and Lucy (Fisher) Igo in Glensted, MO. She moved to the Kansas City area when she was 15. Daisy was a talented artist and attended the Kansas City Art Institute. She was an avid China painter and enjoyed that passion for many years.
She retired from Allis Chalmers in 1983 and married James K. Dennis that same year. Most recently she was an active member of Sycamore Hills Baptist Church. She enjoyed teaching Sunday School and was a Girl Scout leader in past years.
Her greatest loves were God and her family. Her upbeat and positive outlook were contagious even in her final days. She was preceded in death by her husband, parents and three siblings.
She is survived by daughters, Beverly Smith (Brad) of Independence, Debby Grace (Gordon) of Olathe, three grandchildren Marybeth Smith of Lee’s Summit, Laurie Meeks (Kurt) of Olathe, David Grace (Autumn) of Overland Park and five great grandchildren, Savannah Faulkner, Caleb and Kylie Meeks, Connor and Kinsley Grace.
She will greatly be missed by all that had the privilege of knowing her.
Private graveside service and burial will be on Tuesday, May 5 at Woodlawn Cemetery in Independence. Due to COVID – 19, a memorial service will be held at a later date. In lieu of flowers, family suggests contributions to Sycamore Hills Baptist Church.

One of my favorite recent memories of my dear Aunt Daisy are of us sharing old photos and trying to remember (or figure out) those in them! Enjoying good lunches together and just visiting. Talking at length sometimes on the phone. She shared some of her childhood memories, some of which my mother had not shared with me. I just loved her! She'll be in my heart always.
Many, Many prayers are being sent to all of her family for the loss of their VERY Special loved one!

Daisy has been such an encouraging part of my life since I joined Sycamore Hills. Her cheerful smile and good word were a regular part of my Sunday mornings. How I shall miss her! For her family, I pray that God will give you His good comfort and peace as you mourn her loss.

We were all so fortunate to have known, loved, and been loved by Aunt Daisy (Ain’t Flower). The memories are sweet and will always be cherished.
I never look at a strawberry nor a China painted item and not think of Aunt Daisy and feel her happiness and kindness.
I’m so sorry, Bev and Debby, that this time has come. Losing your mother is one of the hardest, most painful losses ever. My love, prayers, support, and condolences are with you and your families.
