Dana was one of my dearest friends. She was one of the sweetest, caring, and most genuine friends I have ever known. We worked together for years, and our friendship continued throughout our retirement years. I cherish our time together and our visits in Charleston!! She will be missed by all who have had the pleasure of knowing her. My deepest and most heartfelt sympathy to the family.
Love you all, Evelyn Cole

My family met Dana through her brother, Father Emeric, who lived with my folks the last 3 years of his life. She visited several times and stayed for several months when he became terminally ill. We all got along great with her! We had a black Labrador, Maggie, that we got my senior year in high school. When I moved out in college, Emeric spent the most time with the dog, and when he passed, nobody was home enough to take care of her. Dana adopted her from us and returned to Kokomo with her. We later heard from Dana that Maggie inexplicably gained a lot of weight. The mystery was finally solved—both Dana and her son David were feeding her daily, and neither knew the other was feeding her!
My mom and I were just this evening talking about Dana and how they had lost touch the past few years, but Mom thought of her often. I looked her up online, and of course we were all saddened to learn that she had passed away just two days ago. She will be missed.

Such a sweet, sweet lady who was a Wife, Mother, Gramma and great Gramma. Her children, blood or bonus, loved her with all their hearts. Her grandchildren and great grandchildren couldn't have loved her more.

She will be missed, remembered and loved by all who knew her. We are all lucky to have our memories of this wonderful, sweet and loving woman who made this world a better place to be.
