Danielle Sara Keninger

May 31, 2021

Danielle Sara Carmichael Keninger went to her eternal home on Monday, May 31, 2021, surrounded by family. Beloved wife of Korey Keninger; loving mother to Simon, Will and Vivolyn; elder daughter of Jeff and Connie Carmichael; and sister of Christina (James) Samson. Danielle leaves behind many brothers and sisters-in-law, nieces, nephews, aunts, uncles and cousins.

Danielle grew up in Newton, and life took her from Iowa to Kansas City to St. Louis where she made lasting friendships along the way. Danielle was known as a skilled and caring nurse and was proud of her nursing career. Korey and Danielle’s love was evident to all who knew them and she was an exceptional mother — her children meant everything to her. Danielle touched countless people with her unwavering faith and positivity, and she’ll be remembered for the warmth of her smile.

Danielle was a woman of faith who found comfort in the words of God. She practiced unwavering faith despite the suffering and adversity she faced. We know she has been welcomed into her Heavenly Father’s arms.

The family would like to acknowledge their appreciation of the generous support of the community, family and friends who provided meals, rides, gifts and arrangements over the past four years.

The family will host a viewing from 6 to 7:30 p.m. Monday, June 7, followed by a Vigil service at 8 p.m. A funeral mass will begin at 11 a.m. Tuesday, June 8. Both will be held at Our Lady of the Pillar Catholic Church, 401 S. Lindbergh Blvd., St. Louis, MO 63131.

Memorials contributions to Our Lady of the Pillar School, appreciated.
