Lenee Marie McDaniel, born December 16, 1968, in Redondo Beach, CA, went to be with her Lord on December 13, 2023. Lenee had been battling cancer for almost three years.
A woman of unwavering faith, Lenee found solace in her relationship with Jesus. She loved spending quality time with her family, having meals together, playing golf, travelling and most recently, Corn Hole. She was loved by many and her sweet smile and loving compassion will be missed by all. Lenee served her Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ her entire life and she was a living testimony to His love, compassion and forgiveness. May her life inspire all of us to cherish loved ones and embrace life with the same zest and love she did.
Lenee was a wonderful volleyball coach and became a math specialist teacher at Ridgefield High School in Ridgefield, WA, where she touched many students lives. She loved playing volleyball and received a full scholarship to the University of Florida. She graduated from Azusa Pacific University, and as a senior was named “NAIA National Volleyball Player of the Year”. Lenee loved all sports but had an affinity for golf. In addition to sports, she loved music and played a number of musical instruments over the years.
Lenee, at a young age up until she left, was always involved in her church where she sang, led worship, playing the guitar and flute and leading Bible studies. She learned to serve her Lord at an early age and she was dearly loved by everyone.
Lenee is survived by her devoted husband Cory McDaniel, her children Valera and wife Irina, Vanea, Maria, and Logan Summers and wife Jillian; her father and mother Dennis and Judy Hill; her two brothers Jake Dean-Hill and wife Jennifer, Joshua Hill and wife Heidi, along with nieces, nephews and cousins.
