Katherine “Cappy” Harper Danielson of Butler, Pennsylvania died peacefully on March 23rd, 2020 surrounded by her family following a courageous battle with pancreatic cancer.

Later in life, Cappy enjoyed an adoring partnership with Tom Smith and his loving family, son Tommy, daughter Jayne, and grandchildren Macie and Braden.
Cappy lived a full life actively working until she was 78 years young and will miss her many friends in real estate and interior design in the region. Those who knew her well know Cappy’s legacy is marked by her immense heart for those in need and endless compassion for her friends and family. Cappy was an avid golfer and enjoyed her regular Tuesday’s at Two gatherings, playing bridge, travel, and of course her favorite food – bacon!
