OBITUARY: Danielle “Boo” Ariel Danner
Danielle “Boo” Ariel Danner. A star that shone so brightly in this world now shines in heaven. At the age of 24, our beloved sister, daughter and friend, Danielle “Boo” Danner, went to be with God, the angels, and the rest of our family who have gone before us into eternal life. Lamenting our tremendous loss are Danielle’s mother, Joni Callaway, and stepfather, James Callaway, father, Greg Danner, and stepmother, Holly Danner, as well as big sister, Nicole Danner-Maufort, brother-in-law, Justin Maufort, niece and nephew, Reese & Mac Maufort, and big sister, Tina Zwahr, and many more cherished family members and friends.
Boo was so much fun to be around, always smiling and looking to share the best time with everyone she knew, her family and friends, even the happy strangers who were blessed to cross her path. It didn’t matter if she wasn’t the best dancer; she would blast her favorite songs and just dance as if no one was watching. Her inner beauty was unmatched; Boo was so kind and empathetic to all and always saw the best in people. She never spoke an ill word of anyone and taught us about unconditional love and acceptance many times over. She loved her mom and dad very much; mutual love was always the base that held us all together. She was quick to show affection to family and friends and remember us on our birthdays and special occasions. She would send all of us silly photos and videos out of the blue to brighten our day and let us know that she was thinking of us. Boo was the best daughter and little sister we could have ever hoped for. She was an amazing and accomplished cheerleader, hurling herself into complex tumbling passes that would take even gymnasts’ breath away. Some of our best memories are spending time as a family in Orlando cheering Boo on at national cheerleading competitions, as well as local and regional cheer competitions. A true Packer fan, she especially enjoyed going to Lambeau with our dad. She equally loved spending quality time with mom, just relaxing at home to watch movies or to enjoy a cup of coffee together. Boo was also our little prankster, and nearly always fooled us on April 1 and at other times, no matter how intent we were to evade her antics.
Most remarkably, Boo’s heart was filled with so much love, like a child’s heart. Children would simply flock to her side, and she loved to be around them in return. She had a very special bond with her younger cousin, Joekai, and niece, Reese. Boo would have been an amazing mother. She wanted to make a career of helping people and making a difference. She worked with older adults, and most recently with kids at the YMCA. She was enrolled in a nursing program to become a registered nurse. She would have made a great nurse too, with all of the love and genuine care she showed to us all. We were so proud of her
The family will hold a private ceremony up north on Saturday, and a public celebration of Danielle’s life will be held on Sunday, October 2 at 3pm at the Starlite Club in Kaukauna. In lieu of flowers, we will be sending a donation in Danielle’s name to the YMCA’s childrens program – 110 W North Water St, Neenah, WI 54956 .
