Dana A. (Topolski) Santee

Dana A.  (Topolski) Santee

September 19, 1964- September 25, 2023

Dana was born on September 19, 1964, to Alvin and Jeanne Topolski in Omaha, Nebraska. Dana, an identical twin, had 5 sisters and 6 brothers. From a young age, family was the focus and foundation of her life. Dana married her first love and high school sweetheart, Gary Santee, and they shared 2 beautiful daughters. Her daughters were her everything. She was a wonderful mother, sister, grandmother, aunt, and friend. She was a beautiful, selfless and caring person. In her last few years, her four grandchildren were her greatest joy. She truly treasured spending time spoiling them and watching them grow into beautiful, young people. She was extremely proud of them and truly loved being their grandmother!

Dana lived her life to the fullest through simple pleasures; spending time with her family, watching her favorite TV shows, snacking on her favorite treats, listening to country music, and helping anyone and everyone in need, the best way she could!  She was loved by everyone and will be greatly missed.

Dana is survived by her two daughters, Paige (Elijah) Bintner and Brittani Santee; four grandchildren, Koraline, Aria, Raiden and Remington; brothers: Tim (Beth) Topolski, Paul (Geri) Topolski,  Terry (Joanne) Topolski, and Ted (Sandi) Topolski; sisters: Diane (Rich) Reed, Dawn Topolski, her twin, Daneen (Chris) Colon, Debbie Topolski; best friend, Millie; many nieces, nephews, great-nieces, great-nephews, and family.

She was preceded in death by her parents, Alvin and Jeanne Topolski; sister, Denise; brothers, Jack and Todd.
