DANIELLE CHRISTIANE KEEFLER Danielle Christiane, 41, died swiftly but peacefully on March 24, 2002, in Winnipeg, after challenging cancer with her unique and tenacious spirit. Our lives were enriched by Danis grace and compassion, her love and loyalty, her humour and independence of thought. Her musical and artistic gifts were shared with few yet deeply appreciated. She was just so special. Danielle was proud of her French and English heritage, her education in both languages culminated in her obtaining a Masters Degree as a Mackenzie Scholar at the London School of Economics. For the last few years, she was president of her own firm, Media Savvy Consulting Inc. in Winnipeg, following a long and distinguished career as a television journalist with C.B.C. Danielle leaves behind her beloved partner Kim Segal; her mother Kathleen Keefler-Kinch; her father Robert Keefler; her sisters, Nicole (Mark Johnson) and Michelle (Pete Spitellie) her niece and goddaughter Juliana; her stepmother Joan Keefler; her stepfather Dr. Robert Kinch; the nine stepsiblings of her large extended Keefler/Domville/Kinch family; as well as the Segals; and a host of very good friends and family. We will all miss her beyond measure. Her funeral will be held on Wednesday evening, March 27, at 7:00 p.m. at Thomson Funeral Chapels, 669 Broadway in Winnipeg. A reception will follow at 62 Evanson. Requiem Mass will be celebrated in Danis memory on Thursday, April 4 at 11:30 a.m., Church of the Ascension of Our Lord, Sherbrooke Street West and Clarke Avenue, Westmount, Montreal. Following her wishes, Danielles ashes will be brought back to the country place she grew up in and so dearly loved: Lake Ashton, QC.

Condolences & Memories (3 entries)

  • I recall watching Danielle on CBC reporting on the news and thought very highly of her. I got to meet her when I was down on my luck and working retail at the the Winnipeg Portage Place Mall. She was so kind and gave me her business card proving she was the real deal after starting her own business. In any case we were all lucky to see your talents. Condolences to your loved ones. - Posted by: Clinton Fontaine (Casual acquaintance ) on: Mar 08, 2023

  • We worked together at CBC Winnipeg. She was a very valued member of a group of journalists who often went out for beers or took in cultural events together. She had a down to earth quality. I was devastated to hear of her passing all those years ago. - Posted by: Simon Gardner (colleague) on: Mar 26, 2022

  • Dani is a special part of my childhood and teenage cheers. We shared many childhood adventures and grew into our teenage years together with all its angst. Dani taught me how to kiss :) A very special woman who is with me still. - Posted by: Jonathan (Childhood Friend) on: May 30, 2020
