Dana was born on Saturday, June 14, 1958 in Orange, Texas to parents, Daveyne (Parrish) Queen and Elmer Lee Queen. Dana was a wonderful woman that was truly one of a kind and was very loved by everyone she met along the way. She was a very familiar face to everyone while working for the Orange Country Club for many years. Dana met the love of her life when she came to know Carl Trussell, Jr. The couple shared 45 blissful years together. She was a lover of the mountains and Yellowstone National Park and was fortunate enough to see and enjoy many of those places while traveling with her husband. She also thoroughly enjoyed spending time at the couple’s duck camp in Anahuac, Texas, where she spent countless hours fishing for catfish on the dock. She was also known to be an excellent cook and caretaker for anyone and everyone, but especially her loving husband. She also loved to sit on the back porch of her daughter’s house at the lake while visiting and enjoy life. She was an example of what a good wife, mother and mimi should be. Dana loved being a mimi so much that it became her favorite and most important title she ever earned. Dana was a daughter, wife, mother, sister, grandmother and friend, who will forever be loved and missed by all who knew her.
