In Loving Memory of Dana Marie Eicke

It is with heavy hearts that we mourn the loss of Dana Marie Eicke, a cherished wife, devoted mother, doting aunt, loving daughter and sister, and dear friend to so many. Dana passed away on May 19th, 2023, at the age of 38, after a courageous battle with ALS (Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis). Her unwavering strength, loving nature, and enduring spirit will forever remain in our hearts. Dana once stated that by focusing on what she still had and could still do, she would have a full life. It cannot be denied that she lived that full life every single day, giving everything she had to everyone she encountered.

Born Dana Marie Leffler on September 3rd, 1984, to her loving parents, Carol and Gary Leffler, Dana possessed a radiant spirit that touched the lives of all who knew her, even from her earliest days. She shared countless childhood memories with her older brother Justin Leffler, as well as their cousins, aunts, uncles, and grandparents. Among her most cherished memories were their trips to Wildwood, NJ, which held a special place in her heart.

On June 6th, 2014, Dana married her husband, Richard Eicke. Together, they built a loving home and brought two beautiful sons into the world, Owen, age 7, and Jax, age 4. Dana's greatest joy came from being a mother to her two precious sons. She poured her heart and soul into nurturing and guiding them, teaching them the values of love, compassion, and perseverance. Dana's unwavering devotion to her children was evident in every aspect of her life, and her legacy will live on through them.

It would not be an exaggeration to state that family meant everything to Dana. Over the years, she became the glue that bound her loved ones together, and she wore that title with pride. It was her goal to give her children, as well as her nieces and nephews, the same love and cherished family memories that she held dear.

Dana's genuine interest in others, her ability to listen with empathy, and her unwavering loyalty endeared her to countless friends. When presented with a chance to pursue individual accolades during her days as a soccer player, Dana chose friendship instead. Her infectious laughter, warm smile, and kind-hearted nature brightened the lives of all who had the privilege of knowing her. Dana had a remarkable gift for fostering connections and creating a sense of belonging, making her a cherished friend and confidante.

Despite the challenges posed by her illness, Dana faced each day with bravery, resilience, and a positive outlook. Her courage inspired those around her and served as a reminder to appreciate the beauty and joy in every moment. Dana's unwavering spirit and determination were an inspiration to all who had the privilege of knowing her.

Dana Eicke leaves behind a profound legacy of love, strength, and compassion. She will be deeply missed by her devoted husband, Richard, and their two sons, Owen and Jax. Dana's memory will also be treasured by her parents, Carol and Gary Leffler, her brother Justin and his wife April Leffler, as well as their daughters, Lillianne and Olivia. Her loss will be felt by a wide circle of family, most notably her cousins Caitlin, Timothy, Danielle, Amanda, RJ, and Ryan, with whom she shared so many great memories. Friends and colleagues who were also touched by her kindness and generosity will feel this loss as well.

As we gather to celebrate Dana's remarkable life, let us remember the joy she brought into our own lives, the unconditional love she shared, and the lasting impact she had on all who knew her. Though she is no longer with us, her spirit will continue to shine bright in our hearts and guide us in the days to come.
