Daisy Karnes


Daisy Mildred Irene Karnes gained her angel wings on Oct. 7, 2023, at 10:15 a.m. in her home peacefully.

Daisy was 76 years old. She had three children whom she adored, Early Roark, Jamie Roark and Ernest Karnes. She also had two grandchildren, Erica Karnes and Dustin Karnes, and two great-grandchildren, Lilliana Spurlock and Micah Spurlock.

Daisy was an amazing mother, grandmother and friend. She always had her door open to anyone in need, day or night, making sure you had food in your belly and a warm place to lay your head. Daisy was a spunky, fun woman who knew how to live life to the fullest. Daisy was an amazing homemaker and loved to show off her clean and tidy home. When Daisy wasn’t with her grandchildren or family, she knew how to kick up her heels and have a great time down at the Shamrock. Not a day went by where Daisy didn’t talk about how much her children and family meant to her. Daisy’s family was arguably the most important achievement in her life.

Daisy was survived by partner Marvin Joseph and predeceased husband Ernest Jess Karnes, also her sons Jamie Roark, Early Roark and Ernest Karnes, grandchildren Erica Karnes and Dustin Karnes, great-grandchildren Lilliana Spurlock and Micah Spurlock, and countless friends.

Funeral Services were held on Tuesday, Oct. 17, 2023, at Bulman Miles Funeral Services, Globe, Arizona.
