Danielle Marie Weideman ended her journey on earth and sailed away to heaven, July 24, 2021 listening to Come Sail Away in her mom’s arms. She began her journey June 12, 1983 in Heidelberg, Germany, born to Karl Weideman and Ruthanne Mosser. Danielle’s journey began with so many obstacles (Spina bifida and Hydrocephalous) and ended with a strength that only the Lord (and Grandma) could provide to her as she fought metastatic bladder cancer for 13 months. Those just describe the medical issues that Danielle handled with grace and grit her entire life.
What really matters is the life she led for 38 years. Danielle loved HARD – her family, friends, kiddos, pets, music, art, spending Halloween and handing out candy with her dad. Once you were in her life, you never ceased to be loved again. She loved so hard that her feelings were hurt easily, and she wore her feelings on her sleeve. You ALWAYS knew what Danielle was feeling and thinking. Danielle was the best gift giver; every single gift was purchased or made with love and thought.
Her chosen vocation in life was “babysitter.” She inherited her love of kiddos and gift of caring and teaching the kiddos from her Grandma Lois, with whom Danielle shared a bond that would never be broken. The reunion in Heaven between these two had to be the most joyous event. Danielle was blessed with the very best friends, and she was a best friend to many. She always called them her Anamosa and Cedar Rapids friends… her tribe. They all shared so much love and laughter together. Danielle had the best smile and made it her goal to try and make everyone smile with her. She also was a great listener and always ready to lend an ear or helping hand to anyone who asked.
When you think of Danielle, celebrate her zest for life and remember her with smiles and laughter. When she knew life was going to end sooner than we wanted, she was so afraid of missing out on life here on earth, so when something special happens, please think of her and look up to Heaven and include her in your celebrations.
