Danielle was only 33 years old, a graduate of Armstrong H.S., and Bethel College. She was a natural beauty who had a true gift for making others laugh. A talented actress, she was often involved in the arts community in and around Minneapolis. Danielle's charm and quick wit often made others feel at ease and smile... the world is a much sadder place without her.
