Julie Daniel

Julie Bell Daniel (JuJu) passed away March 1, 2016. She was born to George and Bobbee Bell of Sulphur Spring, Texas, January 3, 1960.  She wed Richard Daniel (Dickey) on June 26, 1976. After doing various jobs in Sulphur Springs, JuJu & Dickey relocated their family to College Station in 1984, which became the start of a great ride and Aggie pride for her.

While working for A&M Consolidated High School, she served as the principal’s secretary for 15 years of her 22 years of service for CSISD, ending in October 2009. Julie cherished her family and always knew how to balance work and spending time with her children.

She & Dickey enjoyed family vacations. Their favorite place being Spanish Wells, Bahamas. Spanish Wells became a second home where the family made life – long friends.  Julie was a loving, caring woman adored by all that knew her. She will live on in the hearts of her family and friends.

JuJu is preceded in death by her grandparents G.W. and Thelma Bell, Rob and Allie Bunch, and her brother, Gerald Bell.

JuJu is survived by her parents, George and Bobbee Bell of Sulphur Springs, Texas; husband Richard Daniel (Dickey); son Dan and wife Lindy Daniel, daughter Crystal and husband Ryan Derkowski of College Station, Texas.  Surviving siblings include, brother Scott and wife Dana Bell of Mansfield, Texas, sister Lisa and husband Jimmy Eckerd of Plano, Texas. Granddaughters Darby & Riley Daniel, Keeley Mae Derkowski, Payton & Madison Williams.  JuJu leaves behind other sisters-in-law, brothers-in-law, nieces, nephews, and cousins that she loved dearly.

  6. George, Bobbee, Scottie, and Lisa – I LOVED the times I hung out with Julie at SSHS when she and Dickey were dating. You all were SO sweet to me and I know you just prayed the Lord would keep us alive every time we left your home! Before SSHS I remember being catcher to Julie’s mean fast pitch – man, that girl could pitch a softball! I’m going to put in an order for a family softball game when we catch up with her heaven! My prayers and a host of other SSHS grads are with you all at having lost her way too soon. Peace and comfort to you all.
    Dickey – SO SO sorry for your loss; I can’t imagine. Well, perhaps a little – we lost my Dad last month to Altzheimer’s, but he was 82. May the Lord wrap His huge arms around you, around your precious children and family and may He comfort, strengthen and just hold you during this time. Lots of sincere hearts turned toward you and prayers going up for you. Num 6:24-26
    Love you all – Amy Caruthers Russo

  24. Dickey, George, Bobbee and family,
    My heart has been very sad since Holly let me know about the end of Julie’s “race”. My memories of her go WAY back but are so vivid that they seem like yesterday. Julie’s love for Dickey, the birth of their precious son, Dan and the move to Aggieland! The last visit I had with Julie was out our class reunion several years ago. She was happy as ever and right beside the love of her life, Dickey, as we visited with classmates. Cannot imagine your loss as you all have devoted the last several years making sure Julie was taken care of. My prayers and love to you all.

  25. so sincerely sorry, Julie was precious to me and my mom (Janice Wood). I remember her answering the phones at Consol, “A & M Consolidated, Go Tigers” She so strongly supported all of us! Prayers and hugs to all of you.

  26. I would like to send my deepest condolences to the family . She always took care of me in High School . Dan stay strong my brother .

  27. So sorry to hear of Julie’s passing. She was dearly loved! May you feel God’s love in this difficult time.

  28. I worked with Julie for 4 years at AMCHS. She was a joy to work with, kept me laughing and had great stories to tell about her life, her family and her kids. My heart hurts for your family as I know this has been a long journey. May God’s peace surround you as you walk through this time. Julie was loved by a lot of people!

  29. Dan & Dickey, I’m so sorry to hear about your loss. Julie was such a lovely lady & will be greatly missed by all. Please know that I shall put your family on the prayer list at church & will send up a special prayer for y’all.

  30. Dickey, Crystal, Dan and the Bell Family.
    We lost a Special Lady and we will never forget the Special Times and Memories we made while Dan and Tom were playing sports together. What fun times that will never be forgotten . She had a beautiful smile and her laugh would light up the room. She loved everyone and never met a stranger. Fat Jack and I will miss her and wait for the day when we will all be together again. God has a reason for everything but we are not suppose to question it but I know without a doubt that he gained an Awesome Angel who will Light up Heaven. JuJu rest in peace until we meet again. To the family I pray that God will hold your hands and walk with you in the days ahead. Hold on to all the beautiful Memories she gave to you and to everyone. Our prayers will continue. Love to all.

  31. Pat and I offer our condolences to the sweet family of Julie. Prayers for peace and understanding to you all.

  32. Dickey, Dan, and Crystal–I have such fond memories of Julie at Consolidated. She was always so supportive and helpful. And you could bet that after seeing and talking to Julie in the office, you would walk out with a smile on your face. I know that you will miss her deeply.

  33. Julie was loved by the staff and students at Consol! May God be with your family at this most difficult time.
