Donna was a close friend of my mother, Laurel Winningham. They were in bridge clubs together for 50 years! I enjoyed joining the bridge club "gals" for garage sales , investment club, and occasional lunches. As a realtor, Donna helped me buy my first house in 1979. When my mother was at my home with Hospice in 2001, Donna came to sit with Mom while I ran errands and had some time away. We kept in touch with annual Christmas cards and had lunch together occasionally. She always had the sweetest smile! I am sorry to learn that she passed away. I enjoyed her very much. My sincere condolences to her family.

Donna was such a classy lady. She used to sing at the Plamore Club in Kansas City. Wish I could have heard her. Always enjoyed her company. I became a part of the group with Sandy Bowers, Nona, Marilynn Cox, Carolyn Caldwell. We would meet at Taco Via for lunch and various other places. She will be missed. She always had such a love for dogs and she enjoyed my little poodle Boo. Rest in Peace sweet lady, you will be missed.

Donna was a true lady in every sense. I always enjoyed listening to her stories and life experiences. Whenever Nona visited we would all go out to eat and spend time together. It was always a fun time talking and being together. Donna always impressed me with her sharp mind and wit. She will be missed. My thoughts are with her family.
