|Baruch Dayan Ha'Emet, May Her Memory Always Be For A Blessing|
We are so saddened by the loss of our friend Danielle Nicole Schprechman. Danielle grew up and resided in Akron, Ohio. Ever involved in the Jewish community, she attended Anshe Sfard Synagogue, and went to The Lippman School, which she attended for nine years. She carried her passion for musical theater through her tenure at Firestone High School, where she devoted her time to the choirs. She was a valued member of the Madrigals, and her beautiful voice and musical composition talents will always ring in our hearts.
Upon graduation from Firestone HS, Danielle attended the University of Akron, where she subsequently received her BSN. There, she was involved in Greek life and was a student of the nursing school.
Danielle's work in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit bespoke her caring, empathetic, gentle and patient self. She taught us love of family, love of place, and open-heartedness. We will miss her dearly.
Condolences can be sent to Danielle's family at EDS1011@aol.com during this difficult time.
"Danielle will forever be missed for her incredible compassion for the infants that she cared for, for her intelligence and for her kindness. Please know that you are in my thoughts and prayers, Elliott, Elana, Emily and Jared. Fondly, Amy"
"Thinking of you and I am smiling when I think of your smile, and your beautiful voice."
"Love you, Danielle! Cheers to your birthday and all of the good that your memory keeps bringing to this world."
"Dear Elliott, Elana, Jared and Emily-- We were just speaking about you yesterday and reflecting on how much we miss all of you, as well as how very special and accomplished that Danielle was. She will forever be remembered and an intelligent, caring and gentle soul. I sincerely hope that you find comfort in the memories of her that live on in your hearts and souls. Bless all of you and hope that you are well, Love ~Amy"
"Thinking of you and your family Danielle."
"Dearest Elliott, Elana, Jared and Emily- Please know that I am thinking of all of you on this day, knowing how difficult this must be for all of you in missing Danielle's presence- particularly on this, the New Year. Praying that you find peace in your hearts and wishing all of you some comfort in good memories. Take good care. Love, Amy"
"Love you Danielle! I still feel the pain of your loss, and all the things I didn't say, but I can smile when I think if you now. Till we meet again"
"Tonight I lay awake, with memories of Danielle dancing on my eyelids. The way she brightened my life just by smiling at me. The way she brightened everyone's life. Words seem so inadequate to describe how much I miss and love her. The love she left in her foot prints will not be forgotten...never forgotten. I take those precious gifts and pass them on to those who need a little bit of life in their lives."
"Happy birthday big litb"
""Though the mountains be shaken and the hills be removed, yet my unfailing love for you will not be shaken nor my covenant of peace be removed," says the LORD, who has compassion on you. Isaiah 54""
"I will miss you Danielle,my sweet young friend who loved all with her great big"
"god bless her"
"Danielle was my sister in Delta Gamma and I met her when I was the alumna House Corporation President. She was an old souI. I am just old--nearly 40 years her senior. We shared many long talks, and I considered it a privilege to have known her. She impacted all of us who knew her at Eta Chapter, and we loved her unconditionally. Our Delta Gamma motto is "Do Good", and Danielle lived that every day in her dealings with not only those who were easy to be around, but those who were a challenge. I really don't think she considered herself as special as we did. I think of the words of the great Scottish poet, Robert Burns: "O would some power the gift to give us to see ourselves as others see us." Her spirit will remain with us, and we will always be richer for having known her."
"Danielle was an amazing person. From the time I started here at Akron Children's 2 years ago she was always a refreshing person to see at the beginning of a shift. I knew it would be a good night no matter what happened because I was working with her. She was so smart and caught onto everything so quickly. She was also very good at teaching the families and making them feel comfortable and confident with leaving their babies in her care. Danielle always asked about my life and was quick to lend a suggestion or a helping hand if I was ever going through something difficult. She was always putting others before herself. ACH will never be the same. I am thankful for the time that I did get to know her and I will always think of her when I go work with the NICU babies and try to make her proud. We love and miss you, Danielle <3"
"I didn't know Danielle very long but I can tell you that during the short period of time I worked at main campus, she was one of the firsts to make me feel welcome. She always had a smile on her face and she always had something to talk about. There was never a dull moment with her around. Whenever she floated over or picked up shifts at Summa, it was like she worked with us every day. We would carry on conversations all night. She was a part of our team and she will be forever missed. I am forever grateful I had the pleasure of meeting her, even if it was only for a short time. She taught me a great lesson to hold the ones you love the most close. We never know how much time we have on this earth and it's a shame she couldn't share that bright smile and cheer with the rest of the world. Rest in peace Danielle."
"My heart is broken wide open. Danielle was and will continue to be a strong & beautiful soul. She fought hard & long & I'll never forget her sacred presence in my life. It was a blessing to have known her during her short time here. To the family, friends & others she touched, I send light, love & prayers. May we all love & honor Dani by loving ourselves & this gift of life on earth to the fullest.
Peace. Love. Namaste."
"My heart is deeply saddened by this incredible loss. A sweet, beautiful compassionate young lady, she touched many lives with her kindness and friendly nature. She always carried herself with such poise and grace. Always so sweet to everyone she encountered. Elana, Elliot, Jared, and Emily, please know that you are in our thoughts and prayers. May you receive peace and strength from above."
"Danielle was a young nurse in the beginning of her career, loved by her co-workers and adored by our NICU families. Danielle loved being a NICU nurse and it showed on her face, her smile,in her energy and her compassion, she was so very special. Look up what makes a perfect nurse and I'm sure you'll see a picture of Danielle smiling back at you. It's a struggle to understand why God would take from us, at such a young age, a talented loving person with so much more to give this world. Danielle; a daughter, a sister, a friend, a co-worker, a nurse and now an angel, may you rest in peace. It's with so many broken hearts that the NICU prepares to say our goodbyes to a truly beautiful and beloved friend. My thoughts and prayers are with her family. May your faith bring you strength and comfort in the days, months and years to come. Danielle, I will always remember you with a smile on your face and a baby in your arms.
"Your huge heart and desire for helping others shines through so evidently as I read all these tributes. It was such a blessing working with you, Danielle. It wasn't too long ago that I was talking to a NICU family and they were telling me the only bad thing they could even come up with about you were that you were too nice! Which made me laugh and smile because I think we all know that's true. You were ALWAYS going above and beyond for everyone...for your co-workers, patients, and their families. You are so missed. Rest in peace sweet girl!"
"I had the privledge to call Danielle one of my good friends and coworkers. Danielle was always so sweet to us floats and treated us as we had been friends forever. I remember she was the first person that talked to me because I was a "newer" float and we were friends ever since. Danielle was one of the sweetest nicu nurses I knew that went above and beyond for each baby and family. She will be truly missed by everyone here at Akron Childrens. <3 love you Danielle"
"Danielle and I occasionally worked together in the NICU. I truly enjoyed every minute we spent together as co-workers. She had such a genuine spirit and brightened every room she walked into. Her loving and caring personality was contagious to all who had the privilege of knowing her. Even in the early stages of her nursing career she served as an excellent example of what any nurse should aspire to be...compassionate, friendly, hard-working and eager to help others. Her life had such an impact on so many people and she will be deeply missed in our NICU."
"My deepest condolences to the Schprechman family. I will forever cherish the times I spent with Danielle- Lippman plays, carpools to dance class, study sessions and countless play dates. She was so kind, loving and talented. May her memory be a blessing."
"My deepest condolences to anybody who knew Danielle; especially her family. I consider Danielle one of my only close friends from high school. We were not in school together long, and we only saw each other occasionally after high school, but even in such a short time she made an enormous impact on me. I can't imagine she ever treated anybody with anything less than the kindness and caring that came so naturally to her. I know that there could not be one person she met who does not feel this tremendous loss. Thinking of you Danielle."
"Our thoughts and prayers are with you at this difficult time.
Jim and Nadine Parish"
"So so saddened by the loss of such a beautiful lady inside and out, I can't believe your gone and pray your at peace, a peace you are so deserving of and couldn't find here. I will never be able to thank you again for the ongoing support and impact you had on me. I love you sweet girl <3"
"Gods speed Danielle <3
You have earned eternal peace <3"
"I was deeply saddened by the news of her passing. I only knew her a short time in nursing school when we were in clinicals together, but it only took that much time to know what a special person she was. Very warm, bright, friendly, and genuinely caring. I am praying for her and her family and close friends during this difficult time. Danielle, be at peace. Your spirit will never be forgotten."
Words cannot express the grief and sadness I am feeling right now. You shone with a light so bright and beautiful! I am a better person for having known you. The genuine kindness and caring that you shared with everyone you came into contact with will never be forgotten by your NICU family. You hold a forever place in my heart."
So sorry to hear of your loss. You are in our thoughts,
Lori and Richard Josephson"
"Words cannot express the emptiness I felt when I heard of your passing. I still struggle to know you are gone. I look at the dates on this tribute and it feels like a dream. Danielle, I am so very blessed to have had you in my life. Our class was hand picked by God and each of us has left an imprint on each other. You were truly one of a kind. When I remember you I will always remember a beautiful, intelligent, genuine, kind and thoughtful friend. I was proud to call you my (classmate and work) daughter. Until we meet again! I love you, Momma"
"I met Danielle in the NICU, and was instantly drawn to her warm personality. Although I only knew her a short time, I am grateful that I had the chance to meet such a wonderful person. I am so sorry to her family for their loss; she will be missed!"
"I can picture her on stage as Dorothy. Such a loss of a wonderful, sweet person. My deepest sympathy to the Schprechman family."
"Our pain is so palpable, trying to find the right words to help to begin to heal such a devastating loss of such a wonderful young girl, Danielle's sweet and gentle self encourages and reminds me to love one another, to care about one another and to pray. The 'No Worries' brings a smile- the "I'm Jewish" a chuckle, and leads us to know more about the faith. Always cheerful, always positive, and a role model- The NICU has suffered a great loss. The babies loved her, the parents loved her, and her NICU family loved her so!"
You were such a beautiful person, always caring for others. The world has been forever changed by the wonderful kindness you have shown to so many people. We will miss you dearly. May your family and friends find peace during this difficult time. <3"
"My heart hurts from the loss of a dear friend. Danielle, you were a beautiful and kind soul. Your smile was contagious. You will forever be remembered for your strength, courage, and endless hope. I'm so grateful for the times we shared together. The NICU won't be the same without you."
"A new star shines bright in the skies. So sorry for you loss."
"Alana, Dr. Sprechman, and family, We are forever grateful to have known you , and now forever saddened at the news of the sudden loss of your sweet Danielle. Our sincerest sympathy/ Rest in Peace Danielle, Teresa, Stephanie, Maria Fragale"
"Sweet Danielle…heartbroken that you have left us. You truly were one of the sweetest, kindest people….when I think of an ideal nurse-that's you! Your kind words that you said to me our last shift together will forever be an encouragement to me. To your family and friends, I am so very sorry for your loss. You are forever loved and forever missed."
"rest in peace " hunny bunny""
"I only knew Danielle in the work place. I only had to work one shift with her to quickly understand what a truly amazing person she was. She was a breath of fresh air and ALWAYS brightened the space around her. As a nurse she was the whole package. She brought to the bedside her knowledge and perfected skills along with her gentle warmhearted compassion and caring. She was a person that many would want to aspire to be like. Danielle was a beautiful young woman of GREAT character and intelligence. Her beauty being both inside and out. As I read through the tributes and stories shared here about Danielle and as I listen to my colleagues talk about her it becomes all too real that the world has lost an amazing person. How can you make sense of why, a special person that gave so much of herself and enriched so many lives. I guess it is not for us to understand and how could we! As all of us who loved her and knew her move forward we will forever be changed for the better. We will think different and react different because we have a part of her in our hearts. To Danielle's family I feel like I knew you through her. She ALWAYS spoke of you with such love and admiration. She loved her childhood, her family time. She was so proud of who she was and where she came from. The immense love she had in her heart for each one of you was spoken of often. I wish for you comfort in the days ahead and I thank-you for Danielle."
"I just wanted to say how sorry I am to hear of this. The truth is I never knew Danielle very well but I do know her parents. They are among the best people I've ever met and from just passing Danielle in the halls of Firestone and seeing pictures I could always see that same wonderful spirit in her eyes. I love you Elana and Dr. Schprechman and am praying for you every night during this difficult time. Stay strong and realize she is with God and at peace."
"When thinking of Danielle, I only remember a bright, warm, caring, sensitive and talented person. I have had the privilege of watching her grow up into an incredible woman. It is painful and so sad to accept that she is no longer here. My condolences to the Schprechman family. May her memory always be a blessing."
"I am so sad about the news and I have a pile of photos of Danielle to share with everyone, friends and family. Looking through them I am reminded of all the years we had been friends and all the beautiful moments in her far too short life. Danielle had a beautiful smile, soul, and light. Danielle was a precious spirit who was kind to everyone she ever met, always gave second chances, and cared for so many others. The world is a little darker now that the heavens are a little brighter. May her memory always be a blessing."
"My little angel! From the minuite I began to teach her piano at 5 years old, she was exceptional! We shared many times together then and while she was in high school and college. My tears are for a lost soul who didn't realize how special she was to every person she met. I love you, Danielle, and will forever remember our long talks and the sharing of our trials and fears in our lives. I hope you are at peace."
"Danielle was one of those amazing people who is kind to you whether she knows you or not. I will always remember how kind she was to me when I was down once. she truly helped me see my situation for what it was and appreciate what I had. My condolences go out to the Schprechman family, Daniel was a beautiful soul and she will be missed by many."
"Dear Elliot and Ilana:
I am so sorry for your loss. I cant begin to imagine your pain. Please take comfort in all of the people around you.
"I am so sorry for your loss. I remember days at the jcc pool and Danielles lovely smile and energy. There are no words to say to express my thoughts and prayer to the Schrechman family"
"I am having difficulty even trying to express my sympathy to the Schprechman family. Danielle was so sweet and loved by my sons and I. They are devastated themselves and on your behalf for you all as well. She was a true gem and I hope and pray you will find peace in knowing that everyone who was touched by Danielle will never forget her."
"I have fond memories of Danielle as a student at the University of Akron. She'd often appear at my office door and after politely asking how I was doing, she would fill me in on her education progress. Her dream of being a nurse was intense and filled with passion. I am deeply saddened to learn of this loss of such a beautiful person."
"Danielle you have no idea the impact you have made on my life along with many others. There is always a common theme when your name is discussed these days it's always about how happy, smiley, caring, funny, and giving you were. You could brighten up any sad day by just walking in the room. The NICU has not only lost a wonderful nurse but a part of our family. There is not a minute that goes by without someone telling a Danielle story (of course involving something about the Jewish faith, as you constantly educated us all). Thank you for eveything you did I will never forget you and the way you changed my life :)"
"it does not seem fair or comprehensible. Writing this now i do not even feel worthy in comparison to how truly kind she was. Her instant reaction of consideration and compassion only prove more glorious in now, finding out her chosen profession. Her beautiful spirit will not be forgotten here or in heaven. We are lucky to have been able to call her friend, family, colleague. A wonderful light has dimmed here on Earth but now shines brightly in Heaven lighting the way for those she can guide. And what a great guide they will have. The words almost seem too incomplete and too insignificant to truly define such a great soul as Danielle. Have mercy on us, and may the Lord carry you home."
"To the Schprechman family, I am grateful to have had the opportunity to work with Danielle in the NICU, she had a kind and gentle way about her that our unit will sorely miss. Always, she had that bright smile that lit up the room and she was a natural at making each person she talked to feel like they had been her friend forever! Her life has and will continue to touch so many!"
"Danielle left us too soon but her legacies endure.
She was a committed, passionate choral artist, composer and collaborator. She moved on to become a cherished nurse taking care of the most vulnerable. It's moments like these that remind us to be thankful for the fleeting opportunities we've had for friendship, for making beautiful music and for taking care of each other."
"Danielle was a truly beautiful person, and her life has touched me more than she will ever know. She was an outstanding nurse who loved and cared for each baby as if they were her own. Her knowledge, skill, and compassion was therapeutic for not only the babies and their families, but for those of us who worked side by side with her. Our NICU is devastated at the loss of such a wonderful person, but we also celebrate the little lives that were touched and restored to health through Danielle."
"Though time had directed us down different trails to which we hadn't crossed paths in quite some time, I never forgot her smile. A kind and gentle spirit of which the world has lost one of its brightest lights. Rest in peace Danielle, you will be sorely missed."
"Danielle was such a loving and beautiful person, I have had the honor of knowing her since I was 5 years old. We went to grade school and high school together. Her smile could brighten a room. There are no words that could ease the pain for friends and family. God gained a one of a kind angel in heaven. My love and prayers go to the family."
"I am devastated to hear of Danielle's passing. I've known Danielle since college days between giving her advice on nursing school and being in Greek life together. Naturally I was thrilled when she became a nurse in the NICU with me. I enjoyed many conversations with her and absolutely loved working with her. She took such good care of the babies. As a practitioner I always felt relief when I knew Danielle was taking care of my patients. She was intelligent, kind, loving, and beautiful. Her passing is a huge huge loss to our NICU family. My heart is so heavy. She will be missed."
"To the Schprechman family,
May you feel the healing touch of every thought and prayer that is sent with love and sypathy from friends who truly care.
Danielle loved her faith, loved being a nurse in the NICU, and shared her gentle, kind heart to everyone. I am a better person for knowing Danielle. She will be remembered in our hearts always."
"Danielle was such a beautiful person. She was so warm hearted and genuine, I met her volunteering at Akron Children's Hospital when I was 15years old...from there she showed me the ropes of UA, introduced me to Greek Life, taught me to knit, and instilled in me a love of tea. We went Black Friday shopping together and we would meet up at Barnes and Noble and read/talk/share our theories on our favorite show, and of course, drink tea. In highschool, we had to write about three people that most influenced your life- she was on that list. She always had a smile on her face and could always brighten your day no matter what was going on. She was the brightest, most beautiful, giving, creative person and a wonderful friend.She will be deeply missed. Heaven is lucky today. She always had so much hope and never gave up...let us carry that on in her memory. Love you, Danielle. ❤️"
"Danielle was truly a beautiful soul! My family is in complete disbeielf! We couldn't of imagined our NICU stay without her. She was always so calming, sincere, and paitent with us regarding our baby boy. I feel blessed that our lives crossed paths and will make sure our son grows up knowing the nurse that taught us how to give him a bath at 2 pounds and handed me my son so I could hold him like a "normal" sized baby! Danielle made our days visiting him much more enjoyable and we shared many find memories. The image of her holding Gio the day before we were discharged will forever be burned in my memory. My heart is breaking as we'll never see her again and I give my sincere condolences to her family as they raised an amazing daughter who will be missed by many.
Carla and Dave Litteral"
"Danielle, we shared a name, a birth month and high school. Never had I heard an angry word about her, or from her. Never had I met a gaze that was not sincere from her beautiful face. Such a light has been lost from the world. I will always remember Danielle's kindness and warmheartedness. A candle burns in my heart and it has been lit by Danielle. The candle will never wane or burn out. I pray for peace for the her family and for those she touched. God Bless You.
"Countless of my high school classes were graced with Danielle's presence. I was most fortunate to hear her musical talent in the choir classes we shared. I cannot tell you how many classes I had with her, but her warm smile is imprinted on my high school memories. Danielle was full of heart, passion, and kindness. Beauty, inside and out, no doubt about it. Everything she did was done with grace and beauty. She was a nurse, a friend, a daughter, a classmate, a student, a talent; the list goes on and on but most importantly she is an example. An example of how to do everything we do with the utmost passion, grace, and love. An example of how not to let the bad get you down but to rise above it. She will be missed but not soon forgotten."
can express my disbelief and sadness for your tremendous loss. Your family has always been such an inspiration of love and kindness. Prayers for strength and hope to you all."
"I am at a loss for the right words, but Hashem must have needed a really remarkable nurse in Heaven. We are all poorer for Danielle's untimely departure from this world. May Danielle rest in eternal peace."
You were such a beautiful, kind and caring person who always had a smile on your face. You were an amazing nurse and went above and beyond for your babies and their families. Your NICU family will miss you dearly. My deepest sympathy for your family during this difficult time."
"Because of Danielle's passion for the NICU and all the babies that came through those doors, my son is alive and well. My husband and I couldn't have made a better choice for a primary nurse. We got to know Danielle during our son's NICU stay and she was like a member of our family. We will miss talking with Danielle and the compassion she showed our family during the happy times and trying times. Rest in peace Danielle... we will continue to remember you as our guardian angel. <3"
"Dear Ilana and Elliot,
The Ohayon Family joins me in sending much love your way at this time. I will never forget the amazing family you are. The kindness you both showed to Yacov and I are too much to even to put into words. We are deeply sadend to hear this. May Hashem help you find Peace.
Shayna & Yacov Ohayon and Family"
"I will always remember Danielle for her kindness and beauty. She was such a wonderful friend to everyone that she came in contact with. I will remember the beauty and richness in her voice in choir, and her talent when it came to piano and composing. She may not have known it, but she showed me kindness, in my high school days, when I needed it most, and during some of my darkest days. She will truly be missed by all those who loved her and knew her. She touched the lives of all who came in contact with her. I will pray continually for her family as they go through this dark hour. May God comfort all of our hearts for such a precious life lost.
~Sarah Oliver (Besse)"
"I was saddened to hear of Danielle's passing. She was a kind person who always had a smile on her face. May you rest in peace. You will be missed."
"Danielle was one of the best sorority sisters I've ever had. Her kindness and compassion shone through like a light. I was so saddened to hear of her passing. My deepest sympathy."
"Danielle led her life with a quiet passion devoted to her studies and career. She was friendly and sweet to everyone she met. She and I shared a deep love for reading. A message from her suggested we meet up at a bookstore, because "bookstores are my love... nothing's changed." May her memory be a blessing."
You were such a beautiful person on the inside and out. I will miss our conversations we had in the lounge at work when I picked up those night shifts. I wish I would have had a chance to get to know you better. You were a awesome nurse who too great care of your little patients and their families. You will forever be missed. Heaven has truly gained an angel."
"My heart breaks for your loss, she was one of the genuinely kindest girls i knew. A light on the world, extinguished far too soon. I am grateful that i knew her and so saddened by this loss. My thoughts and prayers are with her family and loved ones. Life truly isn't fair."
"Danielle will forever be remembered as a kind, stunning, intelligent and giving young lady.She had a rare talent, as it is unusual for a young nurse to be chosen to care for the fragile babies whose care that she was entrusted to every day. Her family has always been unbelievably kind to mine for a lot of reasons and in difficult times. She will be dearly missed by her community and never, ever forgotten. Love to all of you, Elliot, Elana, Jared and Emily.."
"My heart is breaking. Danielle, you have touched the lives of all of us in the NICU. I will miss your sweet smile and your gentle ways, and your silly stories that always made me laugh. I think I learned about everything "kosher" from you. Your beautiful soul will forever be missed. There is now a special angel taking care of heaven's babies. May your wings soar. Forever in our hearts, Laurel <3"
"Danielle, You were always smiling and happy. A pleasure to work with. You loved the babies and they and their families loved you. I will miss your smiling self.. Deanne"
"Danielle, I am so saddened by this news! I will always remember your smiling face and caring soul. You will forever and always be my sister! I love you and miss you! All my LITB!"
"We are deeply saddened to hear about Danielle's passing. We enjoyed seeing her at work. She was perpetually pleasant and she was funny, always cracking some kind of joke. Like Tamara said, she was famous for her "no worries." The NICU won't be the same without her kindness.
Sending prayers to her friends and family,
Stefani and Wade Fee"
""Danielle was a kind and loving nurse. I will miss her and her "No worries." Our NICU family lost an angel, but she will be up in heaven taking care of our little ones up with her.
Her family is in prayers.""
"All my thought and prayers go out to your family Dr. Schprechman."
"I remember her fondly from the Firestone choirs, and consider her a friend. I am so sorry to hear of her passing."
"Danielle was a grand friend, and one of my strongest peer role models in high school. We participated in Madrigals together, and she was consistently one of the kindest, gentlest, sweetest souls you would ever meet. Among a few others in her class, she took me under her wing her senior year and truly helped me to develop further as a person before she graduated. She was also very passionate about her faith, her ambitions, and music. I'll never forget the look on her face when we performed a composition of hers based on E.E. Cummings "I Carry Your Heart" poem - it was one of pure elation. My prayers go out to the Schprechman family at this time, and I hope that I can go through life displaying the same loving kindness that Danielle demonstrated with so many of us during her lifetime."
