Danielle Rye

April 7, 1992 - June 20, 2021

On June 20, 2021, Danielle Rye, 29, gained her wings and went to be with her heavenly family. She was born April 7, 1992, in Eau Claire, WI.

The simplest pleasures in life brought great joy to Danielle. She loved spending time with her children making crafts, playing games, playing outside, listening to music and dancing. She enjoyed the outdoors and would take drives to her special spots at the park or on the beach. Watching firework displays were a blast for her as she loved to see the sky lit up with color. Taking the time to spend with her family on holidays or for any reason was a highlight, and she will be missed. Her love for all genres of music and playing guitar were undoubtedly her favorite pastime. Danielle’s creativity in filmmaking brought joy to those who knew her, and thankfully, these short films and comedies will remain for all to enjoy into the future.

Danielle is survived by her sons, Easton and Connor, and her daughter, Lillian “Lilly” all of Cape Coral, FL; loving mother, Shamera Rye of Cape Coral; father, Jeffery Rye (Amy) of Eau Claire, WI; sister, Raquel Rye (Mike Rhinehart) of Fort Myers, FL; nieces, Alexis and Olivia, and nephew, Aiden; paternal grandmother, Sandra Rye of Eau Claire, WI; and a large and loving extended family.

She is preceded in death by her maternal grandmother, Phyllis Melland and maternal/paternal grandfathers, Eugene Melland and Raymond Rye.

Danielle had a big heart and would help anyone. Danielle’s final act was to give the gift of life through organ donation. Through her selfless act, her gifts were received by four recipients who will have an improved quality of life, made possible through these gifts. She is truly an inspiration and has touched the lives of countless people and moved so many. A part of her will live on with adventures in those who received her gifts of life. While Danielle’s family grieves her loss, they are choosing to remember Danielle in a way that honors her spirit and selflessness.

In lieu of flowers, the family asks for donations to the GoFundMe account set up to honor Danielle and help with her children’s future expenses:


A celebration of life will be held at a later date.

Mullins Memorial Funeral Home & Cremation Service, Cape Coral, is entrusted with final care.
