A Kent State student passed away Wednesday following an extended illness.

Danielle Wagner was a sophomore anthropology major who graduated in 2011 from Perry High School in Massillon, Ohio. She was 20.

Wagner was a member of the student organization Knitting for Those in Need while at Kent State.

“I don’t think anyone in [Knitting for Those in Need] knew how ill she really was because she was always knitting away, being her sassy little self,” was posted on the Kent State Knitting for Those in Need Facebook page.

The service is at 1 p.m. Monday at Paquelet and Arnold-Lynch Funeral Home in Massillon, Ohio. Her family is accepting contributions for the establishment of a scholarship in Wagner’s name for chronically ill children.
