Obituary for DAISY M. CHEW

Daisy Marie Chew was born on January 17, 1933 in Port Republic, Maryland. She was the 15th of 16 children born to the late Willie and Daisy Chew. Daisy was affectionately known as Marie by her family and close friends and as “Rie Rie” by her grandchildren. Marie departed this life on Saturday, November 7, 2015, at the Calvert Nursing Center in Prince Frederick, Maryland.

She began her Christian journey at an early age at Brown’s Church in Port Republic, Maryland. She later attended Bibleway Church in Prince Frederick, Maryland under the leadership of Bishop Henry Brown, Sr. Later in life, on May 1, 2005, Marie was baptized and joined Mt. Gethsemane Holiness Church in Huntingtown, Maryland under the leadership of Bishop Robert Watts.

Marie was educated in the public school system of Calvert County. She was employed at various restaurants as a food service worker. Marie finally settled in Washington, DC where she lived and worked for many years. Marie began her career in Washington at the Skyline Inn Restaurant private dinning room. She continued her career at the National Press Club, beginning on September 7, 1966. At the National Press Club, she helped to prepare meals for and met Presidents and other dignitaries from around the world. Her grandsons always enjoyed when Rie Rie would bring them ball caps from visiting professional football teams when they would eat there.

Marie was well liked by her co-workers and after thirty-nine years she retired from the National Press Club on April 1, 2005 with many in attendance celebrating her many years of employment. Marie would use her cooking skills that she learned from her mother, the many restaurants where she worked, and the National Press Club to cook for family and friends during many family gatherings. Her grandsons always looked forward to her fried chicken and frequently asked for it above their mother’s. Marie also volunteered her talents as a skilled meat station carver at the Carroll-Victoria Community Center in Huntingtown, Maryland. Here, Marie was able to volunteer side-by-side with her daughter Marine, which they both enjoyed very much. Marie also enjoyed vacationing with family and traveling to visit family that lived out of state. She especially enjoyed visiting her grandchildren as they attended college out of state and her great-grandchildren as they were being born out of state.

Marie is deeply loved and survived by her devoted daughter and son, Marine Parran (Joseph) and Clifton Patterson Evans; grandchildren: Joseph Parran II (Cusetta), Malcolm Parran (Jennifer), Brian Parran, Coarlee Brooks, and Paul Hawkins, Sr. (Keyanna); great-grandchildren: Joseph Parran III, Jonathan Parran, Alice Parran, Anitra Brooks, Kameron Brooks, Chase Brooks, Zale Brooks, Paul Hawkins Jr., and Belinda Hawkins; two goddaughters: Amanda Stewart and Denise Juan Mackall; one sister, Martha Thomas; three sisters-in-law, I.B.C. Chew, Carrie Chew and Elsie Mae Chew and special nieces, Mary Jane Hogan and Darlene Brown (William). She was preceded in death by two sisters, Flossie Saunders and Betty Chew; six brothers, Bernard, Guy, Willie, Joseph, Donald and Clifton Chew, George Carr; and a special niece, Betty Carter. Marie also leaves to mourn many other nieces, nephews, relatives, and special friends.
