Funeral Mass will be 10:30 a.m. Friday at St. Ann’s Catholic Church in Miller, with Father Paul Josten officiating. Burial will follow at St. Ann’s Cemetery in Miller.
Arleen “Tina” Kay Danielson was born on Feb. 7, 1957, to Lawrence and Helen (Chytka) Hrdlicka in Miller. Tina grew up on a farm by Miller and graduated from Miller High School in 1975. She went on to attend Lake Area Technical Institute for Dental Assisting. During her time at Lake Area, she met and married Charlie Miller on June 3, 1978, in Onida. To this union two children were born, Scott and Laura.
She began her career in dental assisting, working at Delta Dental in Pierre for many years and later various businesses in Miller. Tina was a dedicated employee at Kesslers in Miller, receiving employee of the year. She was recognized many times for how wonderful the produce section was at the store and was very proud of that.
Years later, she bumped into her old high school sweetheart and married Bob Danielson on Sept. 18, 1999, and the two resided on a farm by Ree Heights.
Tina was a very hardworking, extremely talented person, winning awards for her sewing. She had many animals she cared for, grew beautiful flowers, and had a bountiful garden each year. Much of her summers were either spent outside in the garden or inside canning what she picked from it. Her pickles will be missed by many!
Thankful to have shared in her life are her husband, Bob; children: Scott Miller of Wessington Springs and Laura (Thad) Jacobson of Florence; grandsons: Colin and Devin Jacobson; sisters: Jean Myears of Greenridge, Mo., Sharon Davis of Rockham, Linda (Richard) Clark of Gettysburg, and Diane (Tim) Goetz of Miller; and brother, Robert Sell of St. Lawrence.
She was preceded in death by her grandparents; parents; sister, Shirley Peterman; brothers: Larry Sell and Ed Sell; and brothers-in-law: Lloyd Myears and Jim Davis.
Reck Funeral Home of Miller has been entrusted with Tina’s arrangements.
