Suzanne Evelyn Danielson, 73, died peacefully at home in Florence , after a brief battle with cancer.
She was born in Chicago , IL., to John Safran and Jeannette Belle Secker. She received her bachelor's degree in Early Childhood Education and, after one year of teaching, chose to use it as a homemaker who raised nine children with her husband, Leif Danielson.
She continued to provide love, wisdom, guidance and friendship to her children throughout her life, as well as love and attention to her many grandchildren. In their later years, she and her husband took up kayaking and bicycling around the local area. They enjoyed daily trips to local lakes and parks and were often seen working towards their goal of eradicating invasive Scotch broom from their favorite nature sites.
She is survived by her husband , Leif; her nine children: Seth, Jared, Sarah, Mark, Deborah, Mary, Aaron, Thad and Ammon; her sisters: Joan and Jeanica; her brother, John; and loving relatives and friends.
Sue requested a private family burial and services. She will be dearly missed.
The family wishes to thank Peace Harbor Hospice and Lincare for their kindness, compassion and support during her final days.
Burns's Riverside Chapel Florence Funeral Home was in charge of arrangements.
