George Younce’s daughter Dana Willis passes away
Dana Willis, daughter of George Younce and sister-in-law to Ernie Haase, died suddenly yesterday of a heart attack. This has been confirmed on a number of message boards (and in a brief statement on the Singing News website). Her husband Robbie Willis, former Nelons band member, was on a tour up in Michigan at the time. Perhaps because of this, there is no official statement or funeral arrangements yet, but this post will be updated once those are available.
