Danyele Lynn Thomas went home to be with her Lord on August 8, 2022, at KU Med Center with her fiancé and parents by her side. Danyele was born March 2, 1973, at Scott AFB, IL, to Nancy and James “JT” Thomas.
During her life she lived in many places due her parents moving for job opportunities. The longest being after the Air Force, they moved to K.C. This is where she began her schooling and most importantly, accepted Jesus as her savior at Linden Baptist Church. They then started moving again in 1987, but the moving around finally stopped long enough that she was able to graduate from Geneva, IL, High School with her high school diploma as well as a degree in cosmetology. She then struck off on her career as a hair stylist. Later she moved back to her ‘home’ in K.C. There, she changed careers and in 1997 became an occupational therapist, which she continued to do for many years — doing something that thrilled her immensely, working with kids.
Later, Danyele was diagnosed with a bipolar condition, and this greatly impacted her life. She was able to get some treatment, but the condition prevented her from doing many of the things that she loved. However, she never lost that love for kids and being around them and helping them. In 2017, she met her fiancé, Danny Young. She not only got a fiancé, but she also got a stepdaughter, Kayla, and two beautiful grandbabies, Jakhia and Elijah, whom she dearly loved. She loved life, even though in many cases, life was not always fun for her and always tried to have good time and she put a smile on everyone’s face she met. She totally and completely loved her family and would do anything for them.
She was preceded in death by both sets of grandparents.
Danyele leaves her fiancé, Danny Young; parents; brother, Jim Thomas; nephews, Ryan and Carter Thomas; stepdaughter, and two grandchildren.
She is now at Home with her Savior and having a joyous time with her grandparents! A visitation will be held from 1:00 to 2:00 p.m. Saturday, August 13, 2022, at Linden Baptist Church, 611 NE 69th St., Gladstone, MO, with a celebration of life to follow.
