Dani Lee Earls of St. James passed away Sunday, July 24, 2022 at Phelps Health in Rolla, MO. She was 55 years of age.

Dani, the daughter of the late Golden and Roberta Douglas Dace, was born June 13, 1967 in Rolla, MO.

Dani had a huge heart for animals; she never saw an animal that she couldn’t tame. She loved giving stray animals a home; dogs, cats, skunks, horses, and raccoons became her cherished pets over the years. She loved horses, and she won many trophies from barrel racing with her horses.  She even tried her hand at bull riding. She definitely had a way with animals; the local police would even call on her to help catch stray dogs. She liked to stay active and to take on the many challenges of life.  Her sense of adventure led her to take flying lessons.  She will be missed greatly by her family and friends.
