Danette Elaine Von Hemel was born on July 5, 1962 to Ross Von Hemel and Rosie (Osborn) Vana. Danette never met a stranger.  She respected everyone as her friend.

Through her years of being in the nursing home, Danette loved all the residents and took it upon herself to be their guardian.  She was the life of the party and an exceptional joke teller.  She loved attending family functions, where she particularly had a keen adoration for her nieces and nephews. She was awarded Sports Booster of the year by the Holly Booster Club in 2010, a member of the First Church of the Nazarene, and of the Miami Indian Tribe of Oklahoma. Danette passed away on January 12, 2016 at Holly Nursing Care Center in Holly at the age of 53.
