On March 5, 1969, Olen and Marilynn Baker welcomed Danyelle Rae Baker into the world. Danyelle was the oldest of her siblings, John Baker, Amy John, Matthew, and Brandy Baker.

In 1987, she graduated from Burley High School and later attended Rick’s College in Rexburg, Idaho.

In November 1996, Danyelle was wed to Daren Lindstrom and was later divorced. In 2016, she was reunited with her best friend and spouse, Don Christensen.

Being a mother to Branson Baker, Rikki Jade Lindstrom, Sydnee Lindstrom, and Kaya Lindstrom was her greatest achievement. She was a very caring and nurturing mother. She was always at her happiest when she was with her children that she loved dearly. She was also a loving second mother to members of her family and friends.

Dani was always known for being able to light up a room with her humor and personality. She was kind to anyone she met and was always a reliable friend. She was a dedicated animal lover and cared for many different pets.

In her spare time, Dani enjoyed crafting with her family and friends, watching scary movies, crocheting, and visiting with friends. Dani had many friends in her life that also became her family including Teresa Franks, Tina McAllister, Tricia Breeding, Amee Buttars Fiscus, and many more.

Danyelle passed away at her home on November 2, 2022.

She is survived by her children, Branson Baker of Portland, OR, Rikki Jade Lindstrom of Coeur d’Alene, Sydnee Lindstrom, and Kaya Lindstrom both of Pocatello; her niece, Aryssa Palomarez of Shelton, WA, her spouse, Don Christensen of Paul; her father and stepmother, Olen and Janie Baker of Belton, TX, her siblings, Mark (Holly) Berkenmeier of Canton, GA, John Baker of Belton, TX, Amy (Chris) John of Pocatello, and Brandy Baker of Phoenix, AZ.

She is preceded in death by her maternal grandparents, Blaine and Loa Clayton, her paternal grandparents, Elmer and Belle Baker, mother, Marilynn Baker; her brother, Matthew Baker; and her best friend, Teresa Franks.

Services will be held at 2:00 p.m. Friday, November 11, 2022 at Morrison Funeral Home, 188 South Hwy 24 in Rupert.
