October 14, 1964 – March 3, 2022
at the age of 57 years:
With heavy hearts we share the peaceful passing of Danielle Taylor McElroy (nee von Hansen) on March 3, 2022.
Danielle was born in Vernon and grew up enjoying the many beautiful beaches in the Okanagan. In 1996 she obtained a BA in Sociology/Anthropology. She moved to rural Tappen, BC in 1999 in order to enjoy small town life and to be closer to nature. For 20 years she was a professional consulting astrologer and enjoyed helping people across the world understand their lives better from the view of Psychological and Evolutionary Astrology. Dani enjoyed spirituality, playing the piano and she loved animals and adopted a vegan lifestyle. A talent in cooking subsequently flourished as well as an interest in essential oils and aromatherapy.
Her quiet and thoughtful manner touched her many friends from all backgrounds and whom she all loved dearly. She married Shawn McElroy in 2011 and is survived by her husband, her sister Maja (Jim) and brother Tom (Lori). We will forever miss her kindness, her graciousness, and her guidance in our lives.
In lieu of flowers, a donation in her memory can be made to https://www.omf.ngo/the-end-mecfs-project/ in an effort to help end the disease ME/CFS.
