September 17, 1945 – February 9, 2021

Dayna Meserve, 75, of Naples, FL passed peacefully with family by her side on February 9, 2021 after a long and courageous battle with cancer.

She was born in Detroit, MI on September 17, 1945, to Ora Lee Schreider and Raymond Tanner.

Dayna was a graduate of Dixie Collins High School and attended nursing school at St. Petersburg Junior College and was a dedicated nurse at The Birth Center at Naples Community Hospital since 1979. She was previously married, to Ron Meserve, who was the former Executive Director of the David Lawrence Center. She is survived by her children, Michele Meserve of NYC, Alan Meserve of Naples; and granddaughter, Kirra Meserve of Naples.

Many Mothers and families will remember Dayna for her exceptional care at the Birth Center at NCH when their children were born. She was also active with the Women’s Republican Club of Naples. In the course of her life, she was interested in poetry, sailing and traveling, but the most important thing in her life was her strong Christian Faith.

Services will be held Thursday, February 18th, 2021 at 11 am at Parkway Life Church, 5975 Golden Gate Parkway, Naples, and a private reception after at The Naples Sailing & Yacht Club, 896 River Point Drive. Flowers in her memory can be sent to the church.

2 Timothy 4:7- “I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, I have kept the faith.”

Me, my mother (Diane Special) and my grandmother (Grace Johnson) were blessed to have known Dayna in Naples, Florida for many years. They are all in heaven together now, and one of these days I will join them. Dayna was very helpful to my mother and let my mother rent a room from her in Naples for a while. She also took my mother on a sailing ship tour of Greece! Dayna will be missed!
