She was a beloved wife, mother, aunt, granny, and friend. Dana was preceded in death by her parents Lois and Howard Smith, and by her siblings Freddy, Johnny and Kat. She is survived by her husband of 56 years, John J. Arnold and their children, John Howard and wife Tisha, Kelley and husband Dwayne, and Dan and wife Shelly.
