Sherwood Daniels

December 11, 1942 — October 9, 2022

Formerly of Mt. Penn

Sherwood “Woody” E. Daniels, 79, formerly of Mt. Penn, passed away on Sunday, October 9, 2022 at Berks Heim Nursing Home. He was a loving husband to Beverly A. (Wetmore) for 41 years before her death in 2014. Born in Reading, PA and a lifelong resident of Berks County, Sherwood was the son of the late Earl J. and Helen M. (Forred) Daniels.

He graduated from Kutztown University in 1967 with a Bachelor’s Degree in Secondary Education, where he met his wife.  He was the co-owner of Bevwood Carpets with his wife Beverly for over 40 years. He was a lifelong member of Wesley United Methodist Church (previously Windsor Street United Methodist Church).

Woody was devoted to his wife and family and enjoyed a good laugh, even in his last days. He loved to gather with his extended family and never heard a joke he didn’t appreciate and wanted to pass all of them on to bring laughter to others.

Sherwood is survived by his daughters, Stephanie E. Daniels, wife of Melissa Aitkin, of Brooklyn, New York, and Rebecca L. Slaymaker, wife of Matthew Slaymaker, of Oskaloosa, Iowa. He is also survived by his grandchildren, Maxwell, and Eleanor, and his brother, Rodney J. Daniels.

In addition to his wife Beverly, Sherwood is predeceased by his brother, Jack J. Daniels.
