I am getting sections in my Shasta Daisy plants that are turning brown and dieing, not sure what to do about it? Don't want my plants to die.

Shasta daisies are susceptible to Blight, leaf spot, crown gall, powdery mildew, rust, rot, and wilt. Any or all can be causing the symptoms you describe. If they have root rot it's from overly wet soils and there's usually nothing you can do to save the plant. Perhaps only a portion of the plant is affected. If so you may be able to dig the plant, cut away the damaged and rotted roots and replant a portion of healthy roots. If so, you'll can save at least part of your Shasta. I hope so!
