Dana Deloris Coley Higginbotham, 55, died Monday May 27, 2019 after a long, hard-fought battle with Diabetes. Dana loved to laugh and had a quirky sense of humor. But more than anything, Dana loved children. Many foster children (three of whom she eventually adopted) passed through her home and were loved as if her own. She loved to travel to fun destinations with her kids and to view the world through their eyes—she was a big kid at heart.
Dana had a huge heart of gold and was generous with love and assistance to those in need. To say she was an animal lover is an understatement and she was unconditionally and relentlessly devoted to her three children. Dana loved God and we look forward to the day we see her again.
Dana is survived by husband, Ronnie Higginbotham and their three children Robert, Kayla & Makenzie. Also, her parents, Barbara and Buford Coley as well as many Aunts, Uncles and cousins.
She leaves a huge hole in our hearts, but we are all the stronger for having witnessed her brave fight against such a cruel disease. Her life was not easy but she lived it exactly how she wanted—full of children having fun.
There will be a memorial gathering on Saturday, June 1, 2019 from 1:00 pm to 3:00 pm at Baker McCullough Funeral Home (Hubert C. Baker Chapel).
