Dana Kathleen Sass was born in Pittsburgh, PA May 7, 1947. She was the daughter of Daniel Charles and Marjorie Alice (Packer) Merhaut. She spent her early years in Pittsburgh and then moved with her family to El Monte, CA, where she graduated from high school. She met Henry "Hank" Sass while he was in the service and visiting a relative in California. The two were married June 10, 1967 in El Monte and moved to Waukon later that same year. Dana worked as a homemaker and also did childcare out of her home for many years.

Dana had a number of special interests and hobbies that she enjoyed. She was a self-taught artist, doing a lot of drawings and some painting. She was an avid reader on a number of different topics, raised a garden and grew beautiful flowers, enjoyed movies, and loved animals, especially dogs, having many as pets throughout the years. Dana had a talent for crochet and gave many of the things she made as gifts for baby showers, weddings and other special occasions. Her favorite times were spent with her family and those very close to her.

Survivors include her husband, Henry "Hank"; and her two children, Dan (Karen) Sass and Jennifer Sass, all of Waukon; a sister, Patricia (Samuel) Palandro of Pittsburgh, PA; and several brothers and sisters-in-law. She was preceded in death by her parents and a son, Aron.
