Obituary: Danielle Francis Hefferan, April 10, 1990 – August 24, 2019

“Dani” as she was known to family and friends, was a member of the Eagle Valley High School class of 2008. She’ll be remembered for her love of music, animals, fishing and art.

Her laughter, quirky sense of humor and positive outlook on life will be deeply missed.

She bravely fought for her life and her courage and strength were an inspiration for others. Danielle is survived by her parents Richard and Jennifer Hefferan, siblings Rachael Hefferan (Sean Squires) their sons Jameson and Riley, Colleen Hefferan (Brice Ward), and Richie Hefferan. 

Danielle left us peacefully while listening to Bob Marley with her loving mother by her side. A celebration of Dani’s life will be on Saturday, September 14, at 11 a.m. at the home of Ken and Donna Smith, 417 Howard St., Eagle, CO.
