She resided in Maryland for most of her life, but considered Virginia to be her true home.\r\n\r\nShe earned her bachelor of science degree in fashion merchandising from the University of Maryland and her masters of science degree from Virginia Tech in merchandising and marketing. Her merchandising interests lead her to a career working as a manager and buyer in the fashion retail industry. Later, she worked for 30 years at the Masonic temple in Washington, D.C., reaching the position of office manager and executive assistant.\r\n\r\nDana was an avid world traveler, visiting Antarctica, the Galapagos Islands and other exotic destinations. She was also a lover of animals and music, and some of her best times were spent at the family farm in Virginia. The PEO sisterhood also played a large part in her life as she had been a member since 1979.\r\n\r\nDana was preceded in death by her mother Mary, and her father, Logan, and is survived by her brother, Dale.\r\n\r\nIn lieu of flowers, a small contribution may be offered to the American Brain Tumor Association or the Best Friends Animal Society in her honor.\r\n\r\nThe Osterndorf family is in the care of Mullins Funeral Home & Crematory in Radford.\r\n\r\nwww.mullinsfuneralhome.com.
