  • Joe and I are deeply saddened by your great loss. We fondly remember the good times had at the pool club; chit-chatting and laughing as we watched the boats go by on the inlet. We also are reminded of her love of our Lord, from the Cursillo prayer meetings. Her presence will be missed and never forgotten. She will be always be in our prayers. God bless.

  • Dear Jim,
    I am thankful that for a period in our lives, you and Dana were great family friends. Dana was so full of life it poured from her
    to the rest of us, and she did master the School of Life by giving so much joy to us all. I remember Dana so filled with humor in her approach to life that it was contagious and inspirational. God bless you, Jim.

  • From the very beginning of I.U.C., and I mean the early days of Jim Walsh, Pat Hennigan, Joe Chickvary, Robin Palmer; Jimmie Watson and Ray Cooper, there were the very important backbone wives who banded together and went everywhere and anywhere to make a temporary home. Most have already found other homes in the cosmos and I am lucky enough to still be alive to say good-by to our shining matriarch of all times..RIP Dana Walsh sainthood awaits you.
