Daisy Olean Graves Key Chisley was born the first of five offspring to the union of Johnie Otis Graves and Annie Farley in Burkesville, Kentucky on October 5, 1926. After graduating from Public Schools in Cumberland County, Kentucky, Daisy came to Norton's Infirmary in Louisville, Kentucky to enter into the Cadet Corps in pursuit of a career as a Registered Nurse.
Daisy traveled across the States in practice finally settling down at General Electric's Appliance Park Factory in Louisville, Kentucky to work in the Factory Dispensary there. Daisy met Walter Key there and to them were born two sons, Buddy and Kevin. Walter preceded her in death June 4, 1999. Daisy united with the Forest Dale Church Of Christ under the Pastorate of Rev. Harvey Breeman and served as a Greeter and Communion Server.
Daisy also worked in the Mt. Healthy Christian Home Gift Shop each Saturday afternoon. This was done as she worked at the Drake Hospital as a Charge Nurse. In 1975 Daisy married James Chisley and would have been celebrating 43 years of marriage. They enjoyed traveling together to Israel, Germany, Austria, Switzerland, toured some of the Foreign Islands, and later toured many of the United States.
At age 91, Daisy's health began to fail and she, being a very determined woman fought very hard to survive, and she just wouldn't give in.

FROM THE PROVERBS OF SOLOMON
Who can find a virtuous woman? for her price is far above rubies.
The heart of her husband doth safely trust in her, so that he shall have no need of spoil.
She will do him good and not evil all the days of her life.
She riseth also while it is yet night, and giveth meat to her household, and a portion to her maidens.
She considereth a field, and buyeth it: with the fruit of her hands she planteth a vineyard.
She stretcheth out her hand to the poor; she reacheth forth her hands to the needy.
Her husband is known in the gates, when he sitteth among the elders of the land.
Strength and honor are her clothing and she shall rejoice in time to come.
She openeth her mouth with wisdom; and in her tongue is the law of kindness.
She looketh well to the ways of her household, and eateth not the bread of idleness.
Her children rise up and call her blessed; Her husband also, and he praiseth her.
Favour is deceitful and beauty is vain: but a woman that feareth the Lord, she shall be praised.
Give her of the fruit of her hands; and let her own works praise her in the gates.
