Danielle Delie

Family Tribute:Danielle Delie

45 years old

New York, New York

She was generous, compassionate, smart, funny and a connoisseur of fine food, wine, and fashion -- especially French. She loved visiting friends and family in the Hamptons, Long Island, and in France. Vacations in St. Barts and St. Martin were welcome respites from a demanding but exhilarating life in Manhattan. She was renowned for her facility with words, evidenced by her quick wit, the quality of her writing, and her ability to polish off the Times crossword puzzle in record time in INK!

A warm friend, Danni had many enduring relationships spanning childhood schoolmates from Dominican Academy which has established a scholarship fund in her name, classmates from Boston College her Alma Mater, business associates from the CPA firm RGL Gallagher, for which Danni, a partner, established the NYC office, as well as co-workers at Marsh & McLennan.

Danielle loved life, her pets and people, including her parents, numerous godchildren, nieces, as well as the friends who miss her every day.

Danielle was a beloved friend of our family. We remember her exactly as she is in this photo, smiling and down-to-earth. I'll always treasure my memories of her-- enjoying a class of wine as sheet cooked muscles on Long Island, chopped shallots for salad or won another game of Scrabble.

On this day of remembrance, I want to express my deepest sorrow for the loss of Danielle to her family and friends. As I watched the memorial services from my home in Massachusetts this morning and heard her name read, I couldn't help but remember our days in high school in NYC at Dominican Academy, and looked at my yearbook with my family to show them several photographs of Danielle. My thougths and prayers will always be with her family and friends, and all who lost a cherished person on that day forever etched in our memory.

Ten years later, and Danielle, a childhood friend, still returns often to my thoughts and prayers. I particularly regret that I have never been able to express my condolences to her wonderful parents.

Danielle and I were schoolmates at Sacred Heart Villa in Dobbs Ferry for several years. Smartest in the class which made her a little frightening when you are 11, 12, 13 years old, very funny, loved to sing, sassy, so sweet, beautiful with her soft red hair and her lovely smile that lit up the room. I will be a sadder person from today knowing that she is no longer in the world.

Danielle was a classmate at Dominican Academy - we graduated in 1972. I have such fond memories of our senior class trip to France - she, being fluent in French, helped us navigate the language and customs on our trip. I will always remember her zest for life and her ever present smile.

Danni was one of my students when I taught at Dominican Academy in NYC. The memory of her is very vivid and will stay so. What a wonderful young woman I knew.

Danielle was a childhood frend of my sister and myself. She was a wonderful person. Coming from a family of 8 we didn't have much -- she and her parents always took us to the beach and were very good to us. We have lots of fond memories of her. We miss you and will keep you in our prayers. Love Tina and Lorie
