Danielle struggled with addiction, and went to sober living in Hollister, Missouri, in October of 2017. She moved back to Park Hills in December after working for 3 years to turn her life around, so she could reunite with her daughter. Danielle was working at Sana Lake Recovery Center in Dittmer, Missouri, as a member support specialist; she loved her job and found it fulfilling.

Danielle had a passion for art, drawing and painting, music, and cats.

Danielle was admired for the accomplishment of her sobriety and was an inspiration to others in the program.

She was a loving cat mother to Rosie and Bubby-Boi, who equally loved their mother and made many biscuits for her.

I am so saddened by the news of Danielle's passing. I would have been there to try and support you in some way. She was beautiful. I had lost track of her over the years. I bet her little girl is adorable. You will be in my prayers. I love and miss you my friend.
