Dana was born February 11, 1963, in Center, to George Fane Adams and Effie Bernice Warr Adams. She was most known for her loving and giving heart as she ministered to her community by lending a helping hand to anyone she met.  Her talents included mowing yards for the elderly, operating her bulldozer to assist neighbors with dirt work and tree removal, staying up and sitting nights with the sickly, cooking, cleaning, grocery shopping and delivery for her neighbors who were shut-ins.  Dana was an avid gardener and followed the almanac to assure the most fruitful produce.  She was an excellent hunter, loved fishing and spending time on the Attoyac.  She processed her own sausage and wildlife meats.  Nothing went to waste.  Her little slice of peacefulness was her home place on Woodland Acres Lake.  Near and dear to her heart was ministering and nurturing children, nieces, nephews and friend’s children.  Gathering as many children as she could fit into a vehicle, she brought them to VBS to learn the love of Jesus.  Her special bundle of joy was her daughter, Hanna Fountain, and her granddaughter, Kali Fountain.  She will always hold a special place in our hearts. Dana was a member of VFW Post 8904 Ladies Auxiliary, West Shelby County VFD Ladies Auxiliary, and Mt. Herman Missionary Baptist Church.
