At the age of 21, our loving daughter and sister passed away September 8, 2018. She was born January 25, 1997, in Lansing, to Robert and Gail Martinez.
Danielle played lacrosse for much of her school years. She graduated from Waverly High School in 2015 and attended LCC. She was a hard worker, always working multiple jobs and going to school full time. She somehow balanced it all. She was very particular about getting a pedicure and manicure every two weeks, and she always had her hair done and liked to look nice. She loved traveling, seeing family and going on adventures.
Danielle will be deeply missed.
She is survived by her parents, Robert Martinez and Gail (Charles Ledesma) Martinez; maternal grandmother, JurRee Schneider; paternal grandparents, Jose and Enriqueta Martinez; sisters, Briana Martinez and Mindee Best; and many aunts, uncles and other extended family members. She was preceded in death by her boyfriend, Jeremiah Diaz; her uncles, Jose Martinez and Charles Jegla; and grandfather, Clemens Schneider.
The Funeral Mass will be celebrated by Fr. Fred Thelen at 11:00 a.m. on Monday, September 17, 2018, at Cristo Rey Catholic Church, 201 W. Miller Rd., Lansing. Rite of Committal will follow at St. Joseph Catholic Cemetery. Her family will receive friends from 2-4 and 6-8 p.m. on Sunday at the Estes-Leadley Greater Lansing Chapel. Memorial contributions may be made to the Capital Area Humane Society. Online condolences may be left for Danielle’s family at www.EstesLeadley.com
