“Dee” “Dani” Age 28, of Oakdale and formerly of Cottage Grove

Our beautiful Danielle has been taken from us. Gone are her big brown eyes, her infectious smile, her bear hugs, and the sound of her voice saying “luv ya!” Gone, also, are pieces of our hearts. She leaves behind her parents, Jan & Ed; brother Jason (Keri); sister Cory; beloved nephews, Cedar, Braden & Keegan; Grandma Peg; Aunts & Uncles: Sandy Robinette, Steve (Sandy) Goodson, Lynn (Mike) Bury, Sue (Mike) Barry, Mark Goodson (Becky Donahue), & Julie Rubbelke; many cousins; true love, Jay; and countless friends – some old, some new, and those yet to be made. She was preceded in death by Grandpa Ed, Grandma Betty, & Grandpa Anson. The Jelinek Family wishes to extend its thanks & gratitude to all who have kept Dani in their thoughts, prayers & hearts; and to all who searched for her. Special thanks to the Chisago County Sheriff’s Department for its vigilance & compassion. Memorial Service: 3 PM, Friday, May 17, visitation 2 hours prior, at Five Oaks Church, 4416 Radio Dr, Woodbury. Private interment. In lieu of flowers, memorials are preferred to DAP (Domestic Abuse Project) or to the donor’s choice.

****PLEASE NOTE - Because of construction, the City suggests this detour to the church: From the roundabout head west on Bailey Road. At Woodlane Drive turn south (left) to Military Rd. Make an easterly turn (left) to Radio drive and then north (left) to the church.

I knew Danielle in school. In a time when cliques were supposedly the most important thing in the world, Danielle was different. She was popular and outgoing, but she treated me the same way she treated everyone else, with kindness. She never acted like she was better than anyone. I will never forget my interactions with her. She is gone way too soon, but she will never be forgotten, especially by me.

Thank you, Danielle.

I haven't seen Danielle since high-school, but I do remember how she was nice to everyone no matter what and how she could make you laugh even if you were having a bad day! She always had a smile on her face! My deepest sympathies go out to her family and friends!

Jelineks, you are one strong group! I've always looked up to your family and the closeness you've always had. I pray that you remain strong because Dani wouldn't ask for anything other. Know your angel is always looking over you and keeping you safe. Jay, you were so good to Danielle. Don't ever forget that. I'll never forget the day she first met you she called to tell me all about it and I've never heard such excitement in her voice! Stay strong and know that she'll always be with you in your heart. Love you all!
