Our wonderful Dana Young, daughter, sister, wife, mother, cousin, aunt, Amma (Grandmother), and friend was carried away in the arms of our Savior on Friday, February 1, 2013, at St. Luke’s Hospital in Boise surrounded by family and friends; at the age of 49.

Shortly after graduation, Dana moved to England to join her Air Force husband and begin their lives together.

Their first daughter, Kristy, was born in England in April of 1983. They moved to Homestead, Florida, a few months prior to Stacey’s arrival in July of 1985.

They remained in Homestead Air Force Base until 1992. In February of 1996, Dana and her family drove across the country to their new duty station in Mountain Home, Idaho.

Dana began a career as a case manager with several different companies associated with the Department of Health and Welfare. She loved her position and wanted nothing more than to help other people. She filled her office with pictures shortly after becoming an Amma (Grandmother) to Makenzie in January of 2005 and Faith in March of 2008.
