Danielle was known to be a wonderful daughter, sister, aunt and friend but most of all an amazing mother. She will always be remembered as a one of a kind soul. Even through all of her battles and trails in her life she was always able to keep a positive attitude and a smile on her face. She never lost her good spirit or her faith in the man upstairs. She will truly be loved and missed by many.
There was a memorial service held at the Felda Baptist Church, which Danielle was a member of, on Friday August 25, 2017 at 3pm. A potluck dinner was held following the memorial service at her mother’s house to celebrate Danielle’s life.
