Donna would like you to know that her work here is done. She received a call to come home Friday, July 21, 2023.
Donna will be reuniting with her parents, extended family and friends, she has not seen in a long time. She will be in a wonderful place where she will be socializing, dancing, gardening, and sewing to her heart's content. Music, laughter and love are guaranteed. Donna was very passionate in her faith, praying the rosary and was very devoted to St. Theresa's Novena's.
Donna loved to care for people, bringing meals, shoveling walks, writing letters and sewing. She selected the most beautiful patterns and colors of fabric to create her special handmade pillows and blankets, which were shared with the entire family. The pillows and blankets quickly became a favorite go to; the perfect size. The blankets made for her family's newborn babies will always be a special keepsake. Those whose lives she touched felt her generous and loving spirit. She always put everyone else first before herself. Donna will be dearly missed by all who knew her.
