Danise Ann Osborne, 62, Ligonier, passed away unexpectedly at 7:49 a.m. Sunday, April 23, 2017, in Cromwell. She was born on Nov. 9, 1954 in Lexington, Ky. to Estle and Edna (Henson) Orsborne.
You could catch Danise zooming around in her Red Ford Mustang heading to grab a bite to eat at the Fashion Farm Restaurant, Fat Boys, occasionally Ponderosa, and the Dairy Point in Ligonier. Fat Boys was a place she could really let her hair down and dance the night away while listening to her favorite local band – Gunslinger, rock out.
She also really enjoyed spending time outside working on whatever needed to be tended to. The word fun was what she embodied, and her family was her passion. She would remodel your home and shelter all of the wild animals in the neighborhood, giving them food and drink. She will be missed by many.
She is survived by her daughter, Bridget Ann (Rodney Sr.) Bowman, of Albion; three grandchildren, Brandon, Bryan and Bryanna Bowman; brother-in-law, Herbert “Frank” Hicks of Cromwell and several cousins in the state of Kentucky.
Danise was preceded in death by her parents, twin sister; Diane Osborne, brother; Denny Osborne and grandson, Rodney Bowman Jr.
