    I am so sorry to hear of Dauna’s passing. I graduated with he Grayville High School. She was a real nice person and we had good times planning for our class reunions. Our class wasn’t very big but we had a good time.

    I was a helper and friend for Dauna during my time living in Albion. When I took her for appointments she would always want to go to McDonalds and get a Carmel Frappe!!! She enjoyed them so much. She collected Wade Whimsies and told me all about them. She had over 200 of them.. I collect them now and she sometimes gave me some of the ones she had duplicates of!!! A wonderful lady!! Rest now my friend. Love Dee Livengood
