My friendship with Dana goes back many years. Grade school days at St. Peter’s and high school at Quincy Notre Dame. As adults we were always happy to occasionally run into one another. Forever Friends.
One of my best childhood memories was going to girl weekend bunking parties at her Grandma Hoener’s house. She always included everyone and we had so much fun.
Her love towards people and her joy of life continued in her adult years.
God Bless you, Dana.
My sincere sympathy to all her family.

My deepest sympathy to all of Dana’s family. Dana and I grew up a few blocks away from each other. I remember spending time together as kids. I remember Dana playing music at her house. We loved Michael Jackson and Marvin Gay music! Dana was a great gal and we always had fun together. Enjoyed seeing her out places as adults. Saying prayers for comfort and peace for the family.
