Daphne was born on May 4th, 1930, in Alexandria Bay, NY, to the late Lawrence and Marguerite Senecal, one of eight children––five sisters and three brothers. After attending Alexandria Bay High School, Daphne became a waitress, working for Pine Tree Point Resort, enjoying the fast-paced summer seasons. She had a love of antiques and reading historical fiction. Though, she was happiest when spending time with her eleven grandchildren and seven great-grandchildren, and traveling to Las Vegas to play slot machines at her favorite casinos.

Daphne is survived by her two sons, Tracy Pierce and wife Jeanne Pierce, Liverpool, NY; Chris Pierce and wife Joyce Pierce, Kirkwood, NY; a daughter, Wendy Dunn and husband Jason Dunn, Dexter, NY; and her sisters, Jean Thumes, Oriskany, NY; Audrey Pratt, Theresa, NY; Donna Millett, Alexandria Bay, NY; Dorothy Beach, Alexandria Bay, NY; and a brother, Bernie Senecal, Central Square, NY; and numerous nieces, nephews, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren.
