It’s nearly impossible to encompass all that this beautiful soul was. Danielle Dee Hoskins, born January 13, 1981, at Norton, KS, was a beloved mother, daughter, wife, sister, aunt and friend. Danielle passed away June 30, 2021, near Ellsworth, KS, at the age of 40. She will be missed greatly by her family, many friends and entire community of Ellinwood, KS, where she and her family resided. An amazing person taken far too soon.
Danielle grew up in Ness City and graduated from Ness City High School in 1999. She married Jonathan “Mickey” Hoskins on September 21, 2002, in Lyons. She was co-owner of Mickey’s Appliance Repair and was an Occupational Therapist part-time at Achieve Rehab and Woodhaven Care Center.
Danielle was heavily involved in 4-H, loved gardening and the farm life, enjoyed a heated game of pinochle, going to Royals games with family, watching Shae pitch and run cross country, watching Grace in school plays, musical performances and dancing, and Lily in school plays, golf, reading her amazing stories and enjoying her art. Danielle would do anything for anyone and is already missed beyond words. But we can find solace in the fact that in heaven it’s “all pink under the hood”.
Danielle is survived by her loving husband, Mickey Hoskins, and three beautiful children, Grace, Lillian and Shae Hoskins. Also surviving, her parents, Dan and Darla (Brandyberry) Goodrow of Ellinwood; her sisters, Crystal Hutchinson and husband Brian of Hays, and Mandy Norris and husband Josh of Ellinwood; a brother, Alan Goodrow of Ellinwood; her nieces, Aracely Hutchinson, Clementyne Norris, Maddison Hoskins and Kenna Hoskins; nephews, Elijah Hutchinson, Owen Norris, Jackson Hoskins and Jonathan Hoskins; her parents in law, Rev. Loy and Rhonda Hoskins of Andover; her brother-in-law, Jimmy Hoskins and his fiancé Christina Hutchinson of Greeley, CO; her grandmothers, Rachel Goodrow of Penokee and Phyllis Brandyberry of Hill City; and a large extended family and many friends.
