We all lost an amazing mother, daughter, Mimi, Auntie, and Friend. She fought a long battle with cancer, putting on a brave face every day, and never letting anyone aware of the pain she was in. It was a day no one ever expected would come because life without DaNette seemed so unimaginable. She made everyone she met her family. Her kind, generous, and loving nature touched everyone she encountered, making her passing that much more devastating. Even though her time here with us seemed so fleeting, we can take comfort in knowing that she fulfilled a great deal in her lifetime, despite the many struggles she was confronted with.
DaNette was born June 27, 1971 to David Eugene Warfel and Sandra Jane Smith in Cheyenne, Wyoming. She grew up in Basin and Greybull, Wyoming and graduated in 1989. She then attended Casper College where she obtained her degree in business and accounting. Her most recent job was at Peak Wellness Center in Cheyenne Wyoming where she worked as an accountant for 14 years.
In March of 1993 DaNette was blessed with her first daughter Brailey Rae, Next, in October 1995, came Kobie Jo, Then in June 1999 her daughter Rylee Paige, followed by her youngest Harlie Beth in January 2001. DaNette always said she was born to be a mom which was very apparent in the way she loved and cared for her four daughters and the very close bond they all shared with one another.
DaNette continued to be blessed with girls when she became a Mimi to her very first granddaughter Beckley Bay in September 2017, and precious Savvy Jo in December 2018. If there was one thing she loved more than being a Mom, it was being a Mimi.
She is survived by her loving mother Sandra Warfel. Along with her four daughters Brailey(Dalton)Nelson, Kobie, Rylee, and Harlie Vigil. And her two granddaughters Beckley Vigil, and Savvy Nelson. And her loving cousin Brittany Fowler who she considered a sister. But also by all the people she cared about and who loved her. DaNette cared for all of you deeply.
She was preceded in death by her grandparents George and Mildred Warfel and Slim and Eileen Smith. She will be greeted in heaven by her father and hero David Warfel. We can all take comfort in knowing she’s with her dad who she missed very much. Along with all those she loved and lost.
She was such a beautiful woman, inside and out. We will always reminisce on our mom’s infectious laugh and breath taking smile. You could talk to her about anything. She was our best friend but we respected her so much that we never wanted to disappoint her. She never expected anything in return for all she would do. She made everyone’s life better just by being in it. She took on everyone’s problems and made them her own. She was a very strong and maintained her dignity through it all. Her humility made her blind to just how remarkable she was. Her biggest goal in life was too make her mom and dad proud, ours will be to make her proud.
Services are 2:00 p.m. Saturday in the Lakeview Chapel at Schrader, Aragon and Jacoby Funeral Home with a reception to follow in Schrader reception Center. Condolences may be offered at www.schradercares.com.
