"DaNae was  the most spirited and caring person I've ever met.
I will for ever remember her."

This tribute was added by Duane Grant on 1st February 2016

"DaNae will be deeply missed. We all appreciated her sincere care, kind smile, hurried attention to every need, and acceptance of every person. Thank you, DaNae, for being and example for the rest of us of a life well lived."

This tribute was added by Vic Jaro on 30th January 2016

"I never have known anyone who worked harder than DaNae, who was more loyal, dependable or dedicated to the company, its growers, to me. Her caring nature, honesty and sense of justice were but a few traits of her character rarely seen in any one individual; unquestionably loyal, DaNae could be trusted with any confidence. She cleared the way, smoothly and efficiently allowing the work of Amalgamated Sugar and its members to be accomplished. For the partnership and friendship over the many years that we pursued that goal together, I shall be forever grateful.

Yet she was never happier than when she was talking about her children and grandchildren. DaNae's family remained her center.

Why she has been taken from us we cannot know. She leaves a void in the company and in our hearts that no one person could ever fill. She must have a reward and a calling in heaven beyond anything we can imagine. But we can take comfort knowing that she can now rest: 'Going home, going home, where Jesus is the Door, work all done and laid aside, fear and grief no more...there in Him, peace goes on and on.' Godspeed, dear friend."

"I first met DaNae in 1995 when I was in Ogden for a meeting. I heard this great laugh down the hall and I had to go see who was so happy. It was DaNae. And I have loved that laugh ever since. I appreciated how she was always willing and happy to help me. I recently purchased from her  "Give me some Sugar" Aprons for our family and it will always remind me of her. We will miss you."

"Danae made you feel like you were the most important person in the world.  I loved it whe she called me "Sweetie", but she treated everyone the same.  She was always positive and I enjoyed working with her and being around her.  Her qualities were worth emulating in life.  We will all miss you but your departure will be a short duration in time."

This tribute was added by Julie Bennett on 29th January 2016

"DaNae was always positive and friendly to everyone she came in contact with.  It was an honor and pleasure to work with her.   I will miss you "hun"."

"Danae, I am still in shock and cannot believe I won't see your smiling face each day. I'll miss seeing you in the breakroom, perhaps showing off pictures of grandkids. I'll miss you putting the fear into the office workstation installers. I will miss your warmth and kindness, and my thoughts and prayers go out to your family and loved ones."

With love, your angel Julie"

"DaNae was definitely the face of Amalgamated Sugar.  What an honor to have had the opportunity to work with her and get to know her over the years.  Everybody was "Hon" to her.  She made us all feel that we were a priority to her.  She will be missed by all."

This tribute was added by Ray Reno on 28th January 2016

"There is nothing I can say to express how sad I am that you are gone. Just know you were loved and will never be forgotten. "Through the times we worked together, I came to learn what a wonderful person you are. As you embark on new ventures, may all your dreams come true.”"

"Sometimes we never see how bright the light till it burns out.  Safe travels, we'll miss you."

This tribute was added by Greg Rasmussen on 27th January 2016

"DaNae, we love you. You are currently experiencing the journey we will all take some day. You are in the world of spirits reuniting with those you once loved who went before you. You'll probably be working as hard there as you did here while many folks there will be saying how wonderful it is to have your skills helping them. We will miss you. You've left an emptiness in our hearts and huge shoes to fill in the office.  Oh, we'll muddle on somehow without you but not nearly as well as when you were with us. God bless you until we meet again."

This tribute was added by Chris Brewer on 27th January 2016

"DaNae you have gone too soon.  Heaven was ready, but your friends and family weren't.  You were ALWAYS kind and caring and I go back to the the day I arrived in Boise to sign my lease agreement for an apartment.  I stopped by the office and it was mayhem!  And yet there you were, calm and so excited showing me all the rooms and where the CSR's would be.  Made the transition so much easier.  Thank you.  Rest In Peace."

This tribute was added by Donna Schafer on 27th January 2016

"DaNae was a rare "true" soul.  I cherished her friendship and I will always miss her."

This tribute was added by Steph Sparks on 27th January 2016


You will be sorely missed by your friends, co-workers and many people who have had the pleasure of making your acquaintance over the  years, whether it was business or otherwise.  I am going to miss your coming into my office during the day just to chat or discuss business and the many laughs we have shared.  I am also going to miss your knowledge of Amalgamated's practices and the why of doing things.  My wish for you is that you have found peace and are reunited with your loved ones.

"DaNae was one of the warmest and friendliest people I have known. She was always so happy and especially helpful to new board members."

This tribute was added by Doug Maag on 26th January 2016

"DaNae was the very best! She always made all of the wives of the directors feel special and thanked us for letting our husbands take the time from their families to help make Amalgamated the company it is today.  Thank you Danae, and you will be greatly missed by all! Our prayers to your family and your mother.
Terrie Maag
Danae was a very special person and a dedicated employee of amalgamated sugar company. She did great job of keeping all of us directors lined out in the scheduling of are meetings. When ever I had a problem or needed something for a meeting she would get it accomplished. No matter how big the issue was she would always end the conversation with " Thank You Hun". Danae you will be truly missed. Doug Maag"
