To Dana’s Family; So incredibly sorry to hear of your loss. Dana had a wonderful personality and a contagious laugh. I know she adored and was very proud of her sons and grandchildren. I know she will be greatly missed by all of you. You are all in my prayers. Gregg Jensen
I will always cherish the memories of Dana getting ready at Matt’s house for his wedding. You could see she was truly in her glory. She didn’t even make a fuss after hurting her knee because she wanted everyone to have a great day and she was happy to be there. She adored her sons and you could see how proud she was of you all. Keep your memories close…that love and adoration never leaves though she has left us. Much love to you all.
I will always remember Dana along with the sunshine and happiness that she spread wherever she went! We worked in the legal field together and she always made my day with her laughter & silliness. From all her legal friends she made along the way, she will truly be missed. Prayers to her entire family.
