Danielle Dion Trudell was born September 3rd, 1984 to two loving parents, Louis Dale and Sharon Kay Trudell. She was preceded in death by her mother and father, brother, David Louis Trudell, sister, Louanna Lynn Trudell, and niece, Esperanza Sanchez. She is survived by her daughter, Gracelyn Trudell, sisters, Connie Sellevaag, Loree Moore, Colleen Ayers, Nicole Rosalez, brother-in-law, James J Rosalez, nephews, Justin Sellevaag and James L Rosalez, nieces, Heyatawan Guzman and Justine Rosalez. Dani cared for each of them as siblings. She is also survived by several treasured nephews and nieces, extended family, and so many cherished friends.
Both Louis and Sharon passed when Dani was young and Nicole and James took her in as their own. In that time, Dani fulfilled the roles of mother, sister, aunt, and cousin to so many. She brought laughter, love, and guidance to each relationship. Everyone knew that they had a shoulder to lean on and an ear to listen as long as Dani was around. She was deeply loved and will be greatly missed by so many.
Dani was known for her love of scary movies which she shared with all. If not watching movies, she could often be found in a band tee rocking out to music from Abba to AC/DC. Danielle and Gracelyn spent their time watching movies and musicals. They enjoyed playing in the water on warm sunny days and loved to spend lots of time just chatting and creating those special mom and daughter moments. Gracelyn was Dani’s reason for fighting so hard for so long, she loved her beyond words.
A memorial service will be held Saturday, May 14th at the Johnson Funeral Home at 134 Missouri Ave S Salem, OR 97302. The service begins at 2:30pm. Attire is casual and we ask that you wear a band t-shirt if you have one. We plan to gather after the service for snacks and to visit and celebrate her life in party style, in our band tees, just like she would want us to do.
