Danielle M. Eclipse Larpenteur |
Danielle, age 31, died unexpectedly but peacefully in her sleep at her parent's home on August 12, 2012. She bravely fought a brief, intense battle with ovarian cancer. She was born January 21, 1981 in Seattle.
Danielle graduated from Bothell High School in 1999, received her AA from Edmonds Community College and attended the University of Washington. She was proud of her work in customer services. She traveled to France, Mexico, the Bahamas, Canada, California, Arizona, Florida and Massachusetts.
She loved snowboarding, camping and the ocean and she had a natural ability for sailing. She liked bicycling, rocking out to her favorite music, experimenting with food recipes, sharing philosophies of life, love, faith, society and the environment.
She was intelligent, beautiful, thoughtful and generous. Although she couldn't afford much she gave gifts to family and friends and donations to Smile Train which provides free cleft surgery to poor children in developing countries. She volunteered at Seattle Food Bank and as a tutor at Edmonds CC. She dreamt of becoming a writer, a fashion designer, a poet and of having a family of her own. She felt one of the most important things in life is to give love and be loved. She touched so many hearts and lives in her special way. She will always be loved and cherished in our hearts and memories.
Danielle is survived by her parents, Ronn Larpenteur and Susan Eclipse, her younger brother, Darren Larpenteur, and large extended families.
Her family wishes to thank the diligent, compassionate care from UW Medical Center and Seattle Care Alliance which made up "Team Danielle".
A celebration of her life will be held at Edmonds Community Center on Aug 25. For more information go to www.washelli.com. In lieu of flowers, memorials may be made to www.ovariancancer.org, UW Medical Center 206 543-6347, Seattle Food Bank, or
