Dana Cinelli left us on February 23, 2021. She was born on January 18, 1960 in Yuma, Arizona. She was the oldest of four children.
She was genuine and kind, with an infectious laugh and dimpled smile. Her superpower was love. She valued relationships and connection more than anything else and spent hours every week talking to friends and family on the phone. She poured her heart into creating whatever inspired her and enjoyed sewing or knitting gifts for others.
Dana was an American Sign Language (ASL) interpreter and teacher. She taught ASL to high school students and was also substitute teaching prior to becoming ill. She enjoyed meeting anyone in the deaf community and helped train other sign language interpreters at her church. She was always so encouraging to others learning ASL and would not mind staying after church to listen or help anyone asking.
She would say that her proudest achievement in life was being a mom to her two children. She loved being a grandmother to her five grandchildren, traveling to visit them in California and Sweden when she could. She enjoyed walking, gardening, and camping outdoors, scrapbooking, cooking, and sewing. Those who knew her would say she was a strong, spirited, sensitive, funny, and thoughtful individual. She loved well, she lived well, and she left us too soon. Dana is survived by her husband, kids, siblings and many loved ones. You will be missed Dana, momma, sister, auntie, nonna, farmor, and friend. Rest in peace with your Lord and Savior.
Her family would like to thank the doctors, nurses and staff at the Greater Baltimore Medical Center for their care.

Dana was always such a positive and genuine person, and was kind to our family and an enthusiastic supporter of our various endeavors. She was also extremely thoughtful, sending cards and well wishes at just the right time. And to top it all off, she was crafty and a talented cook! You are missed, Dana/Nonna, and we will never forget you. xoxo

Whatever Dana did, she did it well, very well! When I needed a mask and found out she was sewing them, I put in an order. She started asking, what about one for your Mom and one with for your granddaughter. She was thinking ahead for me and was going to just add to the order at no charge but I wouldn't let her. I knew she was making masks and donating to others at no charge. She appreciated the tip too. I just finished a Bible study on Grace and Dana was a woman of Grace.
