We send our sympathy to the family at this sad time. Daunita was such a kind and generous person. I remember family visits while growing up. Her energy and big smile (and great food) were a wonderful part of every visit. I always enjoyed those times. Being around Daunita made your day a little bit better.

I worked with Daunita in Avon and knew her as a friend through my ex husband's family years before that. She was an amazing and beautiful true lady.
Such an inspiration and a leader in everything she did.
My condolences to her family.
