Danielle Rippeon-Nemetz of Lakewood, Washington left this earth due to a tragic accident October 16, 2014. Heaven gained a beautiful young angel too soon for all who loved her. Danielle was such a happy, joyful and compassionate young woman. Everyone she encountered felt her enormous heartfelt warmth and beautiful smile. Danielle was born January 11, 1995 to Elizabeth Rippeon Cole. At 7 weeks early her entrance was nothing short of a miracle. At age 2 Danielle's mother lost her battle with cancer leaving her in the care of her grandmother Scarlett Rippeon. Soon after she was adopted by her step-father Micheal Boulton and was raised as his own daughter. Danielle attended middle school and high school in McKinleyville, Ca. graduating in 2012. Her favorite sport and hobby was cheerleading as she was made to be a flyer. This was so fitting because of her tiny frame and her dream to soar to new heights. Many would compare her to a small stick of dynamite. She was blessed by numerous loyal friends and extended family. Danielle met upon chance the love of her life and soul mate Skylar Nemetz while still attending high school. There was no one able to stand in their way for the future they planned for. Skylar had joined the Army and they both knew separation was not a option and they married in Columbus, Georgia March 7, 2012 right after Skylar finished basic training. Danielle loved being Skylar's wife and felt a great sense of belonging which she voiced frequently to her sister Ashley and close friends. Skylar cherished her and there was never a time they were apart aside from his duties with the Army. Skylar taught her how to drive, saw that Danielle finished high school and both were looking forward to welcoming a new addition as aunt and uncle with her sister Ashley's pregnancy. Danielle was excited to someday soon become a mother her self. Skylar encouraged her dream to open a nail studio and was planning to travel the world exploring with his love, partner and best friend Danielle Nemetz. Danielle is survived by her loving husband Skylar Nemetz of Lakewood, Wa. ; sisters Ashley Rippeon-Ryan and Mikala Rippeon and brother Dereck Rippeon all from Mckinleyville, Ca.; aunt Vera Shumard of Arcata, Ca.; aunt Peggy Windsor and uncle Jr. Holbrooks of McKinleyville, Ca.; uncle Danny Holbrooks and all their spouses; as well as mother-in-law Danette Heller and brother-in-law Aaron Nemetz both of Park City, Utah; grandmother Roberta Lysne and aunt Stacy Scherer both of Eureka, Ca. along with numerous cousins with whom she held many special bonds. Danielle Nemetz is preceded in death by her mother Elizabeth Rippeon-Boulton, father Michael Boulton, grandmother Scarlette Rippeon, aunt Tammy Rippeon, aunt Jenny Bartley Rose, grandfather Johan Lysne and aunt Robyn Lavern. Danielle's infectious smile will be greatly missed. All of her family mourns the loss of "our Princess" and we hold tightly to the wonderful memories that she blessed us all with. For God, who said, " Let there be light in the darkness", has made this light shine in our hearts so we know the glory of God that is seen in the face of Jesus Christ.
