Movita Athalia Daniels departed this life on Tuesday, February 28, 2023, in Temple Hills, Maryland.  She was born to Cecelia Isabella Lee Daniels (Green) and Richard (Pete) Daniels on November 16, 1939, in Charles Town, West Virginia.  Movita graduated from Page Jackson High School in Charles Town and was a member of the Page Jackson Alumni Association.  She studied Business at Strayer College and worked for several years at the Blue Cross Blue Shield and AAA insurance agencies in Washington, DC.

Movita liked to explore classic antiques and knew how to identify expensive items like Tiffany lamps and rare china pieces by their authentication markings.  Also, she loved finding unique jewelry with special cameos and semiprecious gems.  While working at AAA, she enjoyed helping travelers with their vacation plans, and she even considered a move to Florida but changed her mind.  Movita kept her mind sharp by reading and solving mind games and crossword puzzles.  She always had a positive outlook on life, and a smile for everyone she met.  She had a great sense of humor and was extremely generous with her time, often volunteering at soup kitchens in Washington. Movita loved being a grandmother and proudly talked about her grandchildren with anyone she met.  She diligently kept up with their birthdays and school activities. 

Movita is survived by one daughter Robin Waters of Laurel, MD; two grandsons Juan Dukes of Waldorf, MD and Michael Dukes of Washington, DC and three great-grandchildren: Maya and Jamari Dukes of Waldorf MD, and Bishop Dukes of Washington, DC.  She also is survived by one brother, James Green, Jr. (Ruth) of Leesburg, Virginia and two sisters, Cecelia Lee Adams of Saline, Michigan and Linda Hart of Charles Town, West Virginia.  Other relatives left to mourn include a nephew, James Green III (Andrea) of Broadlands, Virginia, and two nieces, Carmen Davis (Dennard) of Temple Hills, Maryland, and Dr. Dominique Hill (Nate) of Saline, Michigan, as well as several great nieces and nephews including Keisha Nicole Green of Broadlands, Virginia, Imani Davis of Camp Springs, Maryland, Dennard Davis and Josh Davis of Temple Hills, Maryland, and Nash Hill of Saline, Michigan.  Movita also leaves to mourn one great-great niece, Kelani Taylor of Camp Springs, Maryland, and a cousin, Sophia Grantham Cowan of Upper Marlboro, Maryland.
