Dahni Jo was a kindergartner at Highland Elementary School. Dahni Jo and her mother died in April of 2020 due to carbon monoxide poisoning. She was a vibrant little girl that had an infectious smile, welcoming eyes, and a very outgoing personality. Everyone that met Dahni Jo remembered her funny ways, friendliness and her hugs – she hugged most everyone she met!
Dahni Jo loved animals and helped her aunt with foster dogs, puppies, kittens, and bunnies. She could be found many Saturdays at PetSmart helping with the animals up for adoption with Another Chance for Animals. Another favorite Saturday activity was to go to Evansville Animal Care and Control. Dahni Jo loved giving the shelter dogs treats, petting the cats, and helping any way she could.
