Dana Marie Ranger 1984 — 2014

Dana Marie Ranger

Dana Marie Ranger passed away peacefully on Tuesday, September 9th, 2014.

Born in Kamloops, Dana worked in construction and pipelining in northern BC. In her free time, Dana enjoyed being outdoors whether she was swimming, fishing, snowboarding, camping, or shooting. She wrote poetry and loved to draw when inspiration struck. Above all else, Dana was dedicated to her family and her daughter, especially.

Dana will be survived by her daughter Mikayla, husband Brad, brother Dayle (Kayla and Cooper), sister Courtney, father Rick Ranger, mother Sandra Cossitt, step-mother Pam Ranger, her grandparents and numerous members of her close and extended family.

Dana will be remembered most for her selflessness, bravery, compassion and tireless sense of humour.

A Celebration of Life will be held at 1:00 pm on Monday September 15th, at Kamloops Funeral Home. The family has requested that in lieu of flowers, donations may be made in Dana’s name to the Kamloops Hospice Association or to the BC Cancer Foundation.

Together we will soar for you are my sunshine.
