Danielle “Danni” Wight left this world unexpectedly at her home in Arcata, California, on Oct. 7, 2021, at the young age of 34. She was born in San Francisco, California, on Sept. 19, 1987, prematurely at 4 pounds and 9 ounces to Sandra Dennon and David Wight.
Danni, as known by friends and family, spent her life growing up between the bright lights of Las Vegas and the beautiful ocean and redwoods of Humboldt County. Las Vegas has proven to have bestowed Danni with lifelong friends. Friends who say, “Danni had the biggest heart of anyone they knew. She always helped people in need...even to the detriment of her own happiness. She never stopped caring about other people.” In Humboldt County and surrounding areas, Danni had the love and support of her family and friends who encouraged her in her education and career opportunities. Danni had a gift for writing which was passed on from her mom. Danni expressed this gift through her poetry. She loved her friends and family. She also had a love for music, the outdoors, her piercings, and tattoos. But her biggest love of all is her two daughters. From the moment she found out she was pregnant with her first daughter to her last breath, her two girls were her entire world.
Danni graduated from Silverado High School in 2005. She had many dreams along her path that she pursued. She attended the Paul Mitchell Beauty School of Cosmetology and then went on to study Dental Assisting at College of the Redwoods. Later in her life, she moved on to be a foreclosure specialist and then a loan processor. She was very proud of these accomplishments as were her friends and family.
Danni was preceded in death by her grandmother Phoebe Rae Rose, her mother Sandra Dennon and her brother Shad Burns.
Danni is survived by her two beautiful daughters Onyx and Omen, her father David Wight, her brother Jasen Dennon, her nieces and nephews Cody, Jacee and Makai. And a large loving extended family. Danni’s unforgettable laugh and her bright smile will be painfully missed by all who knew and loved her.
A Celebration of Life will be announced at a later date.
