Danielle attended Helena Public Schools going to Rossiter Elementary, C.R.

Dani had a very special relationship with each member of her family.  From an early age she enjoyed tormenting her twin brothers, and that never changed.  She loved them both very much.  She was a daddy’s girl and had a very close and special bond with her dad.  Dani and her mom, also known to each other as Suzanne and Felicia, spent hours on the phone daily and were best friends. Danielle often ending her conversation with “Bye Felica”.

On April 22, Danielle and Rannon were blessed with the birth of their son Peyton, whom they both adore and love with all their heart.  In the last 6 months, Danielle has shared her love of the outdoors with Rannon, and their son.

Danielle is preceded in death by her father Daniel Nisbet.

She is survived by her son Peyton Andrew, significant other Rannon Pierce, mother Lorri Nisbet (Brian Grady), brothers Daryn and Dylan Nisbet, grandparents Mel and Jeannie Barber, favorite auntie Tammy Harris, Rannon’s parents Jeff and Annette Pierce, and her forever best friend Sasha (dog).   She will be greatly missed by numerous aunts, uncles, cousins and friends that loved her dearly.

Cremation has taken place.  A celebration of Danielle’s life will be held at 11:00 a.m. on Friday, November 10th at St. Paul’s United Methodist Church, 512 Logan St. A reception will follow in the lower level of the church.

    Full of life, love, joy, smiles and a desire to make a positive impact in all she did and the people she met.
