We watched you grow, and loved to hear you sing songs to yourself in your room. Your talent in art produced many cherished sketches, and the “Only for Me” jewelry line.
You had an incredible love of animals, large and small, and you are sorely missed by your wonderful dog, Roxie, and your favorite cat, Bigfoot. Danika’s gift with animals was easily seen, having worked with various horses from the age of nine.
Danika’s gifts also included a passion for helping people, which she exercised in pursuit of a career in the medical field.
Memorial service will be held Friday, May 3, 2013 at 6 P.M., at Richfield United Church of Christ, 4340 W. Streetsboro Rd., Richfield, OH 44286.
Arrangements have been entrusted to Carlson Funeral Home, Brunswick.
