Sister Dana McCambley died on January 5, 2020 and was buried at Saint Joseph Villa. Although declining a formal eulogy, Dana merits a few reflective comments. Her parents, William and Muriel, welcome their daughter to her eternal reward, and here at our Villa, she is mourned by her siblings, Anne, Carla, Ellen, Rosie, Andrea, Maris, and Joe. Likewise, her nieces and nephews, the members of her party, the sisters at Divine Shepherd Convent, and all her caregivers gathered to show respect fo Dana.
Her 59 years of service are remembered with peace and joy. During those nearly six decades, this Sister of Saint Joseph spent 21 of them tending to the needs of the sick and poor on the streets of Washington, DC. During these days, Dana saved many lives and accompanied so many souls on their journey home. She truly believed in being a “healing presence” in all of her encounters. This sister lived our mission to “live and work so that all people may be united with God and with one another.” Now Dana rests in God’s embrace and can walk with the other saints in heaven. Please watch over us and pray for your friends and family here on earth.
