Danielle Nicole Reinke was an extraordinary 14 year old, an 8th grade student at Heritage Hills Middle School. On the cold, icy morning of February 24, 2010, Danielle passed on to Heaven in a tragic accident on the way to school. An honor student, a gifted athlete, and friend to all who met her, Danielle lived life fully. She was so proud of her school, HH athletics, her family, and her Christianity. We wish to honor Danielle’s life and remember the unforgettable impression she left on the hearts of those she met.
Please join us in continuing to commemorate the beautiful life of Danielle through the Danielle Reinke Scholarship Foundation. With your support, scholarships given in her name will provide a way for Danielle’s legacy to help her fellow Heritage Hills students journey on to their higher education. The continued outpouring of thoughts, expressions of love, shared memories of Danielle and her remarkable personality, free spirit, and love for people and life, reminds us how much Danielle continues to surround us as much as possible.
“What moves through us is a silence, a quiet sadness, a longing for one more day, one more word, one more touch. We may not understand why you left this earth so soon or why you left before we were ready to say goodbye but little by little, we begin to remember not just that you died, but that you lived. And that your life gave us memories too beautiful to forget.”
The family of Danielle Nicole Reinke thanks you from the bottom of our hearts.
