Stephanie Camille Daniels, 30, passed away on Saturday April 22, 2021.

She was born in Offutt Air Force Base, Bellevue, Nebraska on December 13, 1990 to Donald Daniels and Janice Green Daniels. She was their only child. She attended Middle Tennessee State University and Alabama A&M University, studying Exercise Science, with the goal of training athletes.

She was never married. Her son, Daryl Jerard Daniels was her world, and she loved him more than anything in this life.

She had a passion for volleyball, skating, fitness training, music, and seafood. Her activism for Down Syndrome Awareness was growing each year, as she worked to help people understand the struggles of her son and others with that ‘Something Extra”.

She was unapologetically herself: strong, caring, loving, talented, fiercely loyal, free-spirited, beautiful, but at the same time spiritual and humble.

She was preceded in death by her paternal grandmother Alma McGriff, and by uncles Hurley McGriff and Kevin Green.

She is survived by her parents and son; maternal grandparents Sadye Green Polite (Marvell); Uncles Larry McGriff (Christine), George McGriff, James Lamp, and Alex Green; Aunts Colinette McGriff (Hurley) Debra Sellers, Carla Patterson (Eugene), Kate Green and Mikha Green. In addition she leaves behind a host cousins and an amazing group of loyal friends whom she called family. Her light is dimmed, and she is gone, but she will never be forgotten.

Visitation for Stephanie will be held Saturday, May 1, 2021 from 12:00 PM to 2:00 PM at Woodlawn-Roesch-Patton Funeral Home & Memorial Park, 660 Thompson Ln, Nashville, TN 37204, followed by a funeral service at 2:00 PM.

My favorite memory of Stephanie was when we finally got to meet in person for the first time. I was so nervous that you wouldn't like me, but once we saw each other it felt like we knew each other for a lifetime. And from then on we loved each other like sisters. Until we meet again My Stephanie! To my uncle Don and aunt Janice y'all will always have us here for you! We love you all! Fly high my queen!!!

My sincere condolences to Stephanie's family. It has been a highlight of my day to have DJ run up and give me a hug when we're in line for school, and Stephanie and I share a laugh. She was kind, thoughtful, and funny. Whatever was going on she handled it with grace and humor. Truly she has been an inspiration to me as a mom. I remember after Chadwick Boseman passed she came to school in a Black Panther t-shirt, looking gorgeous as ever, and said she had cried her eyes out over the news. She put into words how everyone was feeling that day. I will really miss her. I'm glad that dear DJ will stay on in the SGS community so we can give him lots of love and support.

I have no words but I don’t want to say goodbye. Heartbroken confused and asking WHY. Can’t explain this knot I feel inside. The pain of grief the sense of sorrow just won’t subside. I want to see you smile again your beautiful personality shine. Your perfectly Polished makeup fashionista divine. I loved watching your “jaws jumping “ when you came in town. I’ld knew to have those pots clanging ....knowing it was going down. I’ll remember how you would disappear with your cousins and i would act like I wasn’t aware. These are the type of memories that I want to share. And when you became a mother. I was happy for you. You never missed a beat and did whatever you had to do. Not sure where the time goes I truly do not understand asking God to PLEASE be with DJ Don and Jan. I love you baby. Aunt Coco

I would like to send my condolences to your entire family. Twyx we’ve grown to be so so close over the years and I am forever grateful to have been able to call you my friend. You are my birthday twin and every year I’ll celebrate for you as we did for your 30th. I still can’t accept that you’re gone, but I love you and will do everything I can to help give DJ the life I know you wanted for him. He will become that left handed setter and I will start our Club team.

Love you always my friend ❤️
