Spanish Fort, AL – Daena Elizabeth Harrison Rich Myers passed away on Sunday, July 17, 2022, after a brief illness.  She was born the daughter of Marlyne Rowell Harrison and Robert E. Harrison of Mobile, AL on July 24, 1962.

She is predeceased by her brother, Bobby; first husband and her daughter’s father, Patrick Lee Rich and her mother, Marlyne.

Daena is survived by her daughters, Bonnie Elizabeth Rich and Lauren Rich Granger (Brett Granger); stepdaughter, Jessica Lee Wormser Eesienstat (Rick Eesienstat); stepson, Harry Edward Myers IV; her sister, Melissa Harrison Huston (Paul Huston); and her father, Bob Harrison. “Dane” adored and was affectionately loved by her beautiful grandchildren, Waylon, Lyla, Jase, Taylor, and Caroline, along with her niece, Marlee and nephew, Sam. 

Daena’s extended family includes special friends, Jan McFarland Carter, Liz Knowle;s and her loyal support team of Dennis Rich, Pete Mulry, Berrie Bamberg, Susan Harper and her Common Ground family.  The Rowell, Buster, Glennon, Rich, Granger and Myers families all held a special place in her heart. 

Daena will be remembered for the light she brought into this world and for the ready smile and kindness she offered to everyone she met.  Daena devoted her life to others. She became quite knowledgeable in the medical field as the primary caregiver to several family members and ultimately to her home-health clients.  Daena’s photography reflected her ability to notice moments of beauty in nature, the twinkle in the eyes of her grandchildren, or the personality of her dog and favorite pal, Dudley. 

Daena shouldered more loss and life challenges than most, but she never complained. She chose joy and lived her life as a faith-filled servant. She served as president of the United Methodist Women of Monroeville Methodist Church in Monroeville, AL and was an active member at St. Francis Episcopal Church on Dauphin Island, AL.  She worked hard for the blessings of sobriety and openly shared her experience to give others hope. She was a true source of inspiration to many. Daena lived in the moment and appreciated each day, often signing her letters “Today is all ~ “.

A private service of remembrance was held by her family with the Rev. Libba Stinson officiating.  Memorial gifts honoring Daena’s strength and resiliency may be made to Eastern Shore Recovery Foundation.  Mailing address: P.O. Box 1796, Daphne, AL 36526-1796.
