Dana Frances Allen
July 6, 1956 – April 23, 2021
Dana Frances Allen passed away peacefully with her husband and son at her side on 4/23/21, losing her long battle with illness. She fought stoically with all of her heart, but her body could no longer sustain the battle. She goes gracefully with our love into the hands of our Lord.
Dana lived many years around the country in Pennsylvania, California, Connecticut, North Carolina, and Nevada in her childhood and over a 38 year life adventure at the side of her husband and soulmate Tony. She loved doing any type of crafts, especially crocheting, and gardening at our homes over the years. Dana also was an avid reader of books, having read hundreds of books.
She loved spending time with her family most of all though. She loved her son Dan and his wife Katie dearly, with granddaughters Carlee and Brooklyn that she was so proud of and adored. She was especially proud of the newest light in the family, great granddaughter Emmy; daughter of Carlee and Brian. She loved being a Mother, Grandmother, and Great Grandmother giving all of her heart to those roles, and will be an Angel at their sides now. She will be dearly missed by all, but always remembered and loved forever.
She loved and is survived by her husband Dale Allen; Son Daniel Neenan and his wife Katie; Granddaughters Carlee Neenan, Brooklyn Neenan; Great-granddaughter Emersyn Cochran; Brothers and Sisters Bob Jones (Nancy), Patti Fox, Steve Jones (Wendy and Anna), Don Jones (Cara), Larry Jones (Kathy), Janet Jones, Shirley Sogluizzo (Mike), Nancy Marsden, Billie Bueler (John), Janet Griffen (Marshall), Scott and Jaime Allen, Jill Allen, Paula and Gary Grabin, Amy Allen Williams, Jane Popick, Didi Jones, Lisa McIntosh; Step-father Wayne McIntosh; Step-mother Rheta Allen, along with numerous aunts, uncles, nieces and nephews and their families.

I didn't know you personally as I met you at the hospital. You were my first patient ever. You touched my heart and I wanted you and your family to know, I will never forget you. Hopefully this is ok for me to write here. I'm glad the stuffed animal and mini basketballs made you smile during such bad time. I looked forward to seeing you each weekend when I came in for my clinical's. May you Rest In Peace. I hope that your family can heal and have peace in their hearts. Hugs to them all.

My sister Dana lost her fight with lung disease on Friday the 23rd. My sister and I were close. We had our disagreements that separated us sometines for years. We were always able to work thing out between us. Not this time though....I did not get to tell her good-bye. Because of the pettiness that came between us so many times. We are only given such a short time here in this earth. My heart is broken. I love you my sister❤ I will see you again. I remember when Tim and Dan were babies, we could not believe what year it would be when they graduated from high school! We laughed and loved each other very much. We had our falling outs, but we always loved each other. There will never be another Dana. You were a one of a kind, that's for sure. I will forever love and miss you. Love you my sister, Shirley

Dana, I will forever hold on to the great memories we have. We laughed until we cried so many times. We had so much fun. Our moped rides all over Norco are my fondest memories. Billy the goat in the back yard of your house in Norco still makes me laugh. You’ll be missed for sure. I love you Dana I hope that you rest in eternal peace.

Although our journey here on earth has ended Dana, I will see you again...wait for me honey. I would give anything for one more hour, one more day with you to tell you all of the things I did not get to say because it happened so quickly. You fought hard, and I'm so proud of you. I will miss your smile, your voice, and your touch as my heart aches for your love. Although I am a broken soul now, I will hold our precious memories in my heart with the same love we had together as we created them. I had a wonderful life with you Dana, and although time will soften the loss of you, it will never end my love as I will remember us forever. You rest in peace my love, as I and the rest of your family remember you in our hearts forever. Our "1111" and a finger touch as I say goodbye my love.

Dana and I . In our older years we Finally had . drawn a truce. We both wanted to be boss. She won most of the time. It was easier that way. As we got older we decided to not let anyone come between us . No matter how hard things got. Dana was there for me. It so much better that way .I loved her so much . To me it was very comforting to know she was on my side. I can honestly I don’t know how I will get over this

It's been 40 plus yrs since I have seen Dana. Duane and I lived in PA. For 6 yes. I knew Dana through her brother Bob and Nancy Jones. Bob and Nancy are my brother in law and sister in law. I knew the family well. My heart and prayers go out to her family. She will be missed.

She will be missed by many. Xoxo.

Dana... it was my greatest pleasure to lift you up in prayer just hours before you passed... I was very blessed to have a chance to say I’ll see you in Heaven one day. I got to hold your hand and tell you I loved you, and I hope with all of my heart you could hear me. I carried messages from all of your sisters, to say Rest In Peace, we all love you. I can’t wait to see you again and share eternity. I love you. I’m attaching a photo of Dan holding your hand, hope it’s treasured...
