Danielle Heck-Lonning completed her journey on Friday, April 12, 2019. Danielle had a warm and inviting spirit that attracted many. She loved her family and to exercise for hours a day.
Sadly, Danielle’s light was extinguished much too early as she succumbed to her battle with colorectal cancer at age 43. She fought bravely, never losing hope of returning to work to serve others. Her spirit, love and strong heart will endure in those survived by her.
In honor of her life and spirit, the Lonning family has set up this memorial with all donations designated to the Colorectal Cancer Alliance’s Young Onset programs and research. Danielle was a great gift to us all, and we hope to raise awareness to prevent other lights from being dimmed or extinguished by this disease.
