Donna was a beautiful person inside and out and I know that firsthand as she would listen to me and give me advice.
One of my other memories is her laugh as it was unmistakable and the few get togethers we had with Team AWGI at Betty and Ken's place across the line. Trying to turn the water on at the trailer and of course not many of us had experience with that, needless to say we laughed at our feeble attempts but we did it.
The karaoke night at the bar in Birch Bay or the casino run in Washington State great memories, great fun and we all came back in one piece.
Rest In Peace Donna.

Donna was my very first friend in life, we met when she was 5 and I was 6 when my family moved to Church Street. My parents and family loved her just as she was one of the family. You always felt uplifted being around Donna, so accepting, so caring and so giving. It is with gratitude that I have been blessed with the most wonderful life-long friend and with deep sorrow that she has left us far too soon.
Love you dear friend, rest in peace.

Donna was a Mentor and great influence on me, and many others. Even though we met through work, I grew to love her like family. I know I wouldn't be who I am today without her. She was always available for comfort, advice, guidance and, of course, good times. I will always remember her strength, how she fought for the Underdog. She was fierce and unstoppable - such a Life Force! I am so thankful that she was in my Life and will cherish my memories of her for the rest of my days. Sincere condolences to the Family, she will be missed.

So sorry to hear about Donna's passing. I've had the privilege of knowing Donna in a professional capacity for many years. She was always kind, pleasant and willing to help, no matter what the issue. She will be greatly missed by many.

So happy and grateful for the memories from our trip to Vegas, can't remember laughing so hard in a long time or staying up so late. Whenever I hear the word "marbles" I will think of you (private joke). I missed you yesterday, I miss you today and I will miss you for all of the tomorrows, my best friend, "My Aunty Donna".
Love you forever.......
