  • Our beautiful Dana, peacefully drifted away Sunday, June 2, 2013 with her family around her. She was born February 26, 1962 to Delbert and Eva Vale.
    Dana was known by her spirit, generosity and creativity. Dana had a passion for recycling products and rehabilitating people. She was one of a few people who formed CREW. She served on the area Mental Heath Board and was currently serving on the G.I. Forum Board. She volunteered for Women’s Chamber, Big Sisters, League of Women’s Voters and helped to found the Domestic Violence program with Eva Vale and others. Until they got the funding for a safe house Dana and Eva both opened their house to women and children seeking safe haven. Dana knew no strangers, helping many with housing, funds, jobs, transportation, food, a shoulder or and ear.  She went on to work for the Dodge City Public Library these last years and it was a match made in heaven. Meeting and greeting, seeking knowledge, helping others to find what they sought is what she loved and the people she helped.
    Dana is survived by 2 sons, Houston and Vaughn Hornberger; her father, Delbert Vale; 2 brothers, Derek and Daryl Vale, and her sister, Denise Hardy.
    She is preceded in death by her mother Eva Vale and sister, Cassandra.
    Please join us for a celebration of Dana’s life, June 22, 2013 at the Dodge City Public Library from 1:00 pm to 3:00 pm for friends and family to gather.  On your way to or from the service please drop off your recyclables at the CREW Center on Military Ave. or at the Civic Center on Central Ave.
