Dena was preceded in death by her parents; and one brother, Ronald Cram.

In keeping with Dena’s wishes, cremation has taken place and a memorial gathering will be held at a later date. Burial will be in Brookside Cemetery, Fairgrove. The family was assisted with these arrangements by the Ransford Collon Funeral Home of Caro. Friends may share memories, thoughts and prayers online at
