Danyel Ritzinger, 46 of Gladstone, MO passed away unexpectedly at her home May 9th, 2023. She was born on January 21, 1977 to Daniel Ritzinger and Robin Belcher at Spellman Memorial Hospital in Smithville, MO. Danyel was employed 26 years at North Kansas City Hospital where she worked in admitting, patient accounts, as well medical billing and IT where she met many lifelong friends that soon became close like family. Although she held many positions in her life, the one she held closest was being a mom. She loved being anywhere near water whether it was on a lake, floating down a river, or on the beaches of Florida. She enjoyed acrylic painting, sharing and trying new recipes, and cake decorating. Danyel loved all types of music from 1950's rock and roll to current as well as country. She loved live concerts and meet and greets where she met her favorite Country artist Trace Adkins. Although her life was cut short, she lived it to the fullest. Danyel had a huge heart where she loved her family and friends and was loved by all in return. Her passing is a great loss to all who's lives she touched. May she rest in the arms of the Lord until we meet again.
