Sandown, N.H. — After three years of battling the most brutal disease known to humankind, Danielle Leigh Forsyth, 48, of Sandown, N.H., with the grace and dignity of an angel, walked through the last door of great adventure this mortal life has to offer and has joined her father, grandparents, stepfather, and beloved dog, Judy in that place that knows no pain or suffering, knows no heartache or sorrow and offers the wonders and glory of the Almighty God at 3:15 p.m., the 18th day of October, 2012.
She has left us in body, but will remain in our hearts and memories forever. Her gentle, loving spirit will be as a guardian angel to her children (Paris and Sophie Geisler, Owen and Emerson Forsyth, and stepdaughters Jordan and Mikayla Forsyth) always. Her tender love of children and animals will be an example for us all that as she did it unto the least of them she did it unto the Master. She is survived by husband, Michael Forsyth, and mother, Joslyn Pocock and leaves in our care her three cats, Otis, Max, and Henry and her precious chocolate lab, Cleo.
Danielle was born on April 7, 1964 in Concord, Calif., attended schools in California until moving to northern Utah where she graduated from high school, received her bachelor’s degree from Utah State University with under-graduate work at UMass Amherst and later earned her master’s degree in Mental Health Counseling at Idaho State University. She utilized her training and natural empathy for helping others while working as the Welfare Officer for the town of Hampstead.
ARRANGEMENTS: A Liturgy of Christian Burial will be celebrated at St. Anne’s Roman Catholic Church on Monday, October 29 at 11 a.m. In lieu of flowers, her family asks that a donation be made in Danielle’s memory to the Leiomyosarcoma Direct Research Foundation – LMSDR.
