Danna fought the fight so bravely and without complaint for these many years. She leaves her mark as a woman who was very talented and brave. We remember the cakes she baked for birthdays and other occasions. She loved to hear Gary sing and play and was always there for him. I remember the many times we spent at dances – dancing as Gary and Gerald played especially in Yarmouth Legion. We had such good times. Her love for cats was shared with Gerald & they often regaled each other with cat jokes and pictures. So sad to hear about her death and we send our thoughts and prayers to Gary and her family. Danna will be fondly remembered by us.

Thinking of you all. Have very fond memories of Aunt Danna. Found her always to be very upbeat, friendly, with the biggest heart and the hardiest laugh. A very talented Aunt with all the crafts she so successfully mastered through the years. Always remember her beautiful penmanship. We always enjoyed our visits with her and loved her sharing Gramma Winters old house with us and the many stories she would tell us about growing up there. She always made it feel like it was our home too!!! Had lots of fun teasing Super Pickle (Gary) through the years. Thinking of you all at this time. With fondest memories of our Dear Aunt Danna.
My sincere sympathy to Gary and the rest of Danna’s family. She was a beautiful woman and will be missed.

Leanne & Gary. I am sorry for your lose. When I think of Dana I hear her laugh and it puts a smile on my face. I still have every doll she made for me. The quilt she made for Jennifer is with a special little girl and as she gets older I will be telling her about the lady who made it. I also have the ceramic pitcher and basin she gave me back in the 70’s. She will be missed. Prayers to heal your hearts. Fly with the angels Dana Darling.
