Dana, 94, of North Hampton, formerly of Concord, died Thursday, May 19, 2016, at her home after a lengthy illness.   Born in London, England she proudly served in the Women's Land Army during World War II.  She vividly remembered the bombing of London where she lost several relatives, but always remembered the spirit of the English during that terrible time.   During the war, she met and married her husband, Francis H.

She is predeceased by her parents, her husband, her brother Tom, and her son David.  She is survived by her daughter, Rosemary Couch and her husband, Bob, of Bow, and two nieces in England.   At her request, there will be no services.   Her ashes will be scattered on her beloved Grand Manan Island at a later date.   Donations in her name may be made to the NH S.P.C.A., P.O.
