Donna was so fun and loving to me. She made gift bags for my grandchildren on the holidays and loved the stories I told her about them. I knew she would be a great grandmother. Richard was my work-husband and Donna was my girl friend who tasked me to take care of her husband on our long trips. With all the issues with health, she always laughed and joked. She was truly appreciative of her parents and daughter for all their support. Donna will be missed.

Donna was more of a sister to me than a niece as we were only 6 years apart. Her and her mother would occasionally spend a few days at our house when I was young and we played together and became very close. Her visits continued well into my teenage years and she would accompany Patty and I on our dates. They became BFFs and always talked on the phone and visited when able. Her and Nikki lived with us for a couple of years before she married Richard. During which time she became one of Mark and Ellen’s favorite and closest Aunts.
Aunt Donna always remembered birthdays and holidays with a card and small gift. Valentines Day was always special and gave cards and gifts from “Jimmy Valentine”.
Helping others was always on her mind and gave to charities including making up toiletry gift for homeless shelters.
She was a very talented seamstress and repaired and altered clothing for anyone in need. Patty was always amazed at how Donna could make clothes on the sewing machine.
Donna will be missed but never forgotten. I loved her with all my heart.

My many memories of Donna include her big fur coat when I was little and being able to try it on. How she always said hello to everyone with a hug and kiss. You knew when Donna arrived! In fact, because of her, I had one of my (longest lasting) imaginary friends as a kid, I named her “Donna”.
My cousin Donna was a light. Several years ago she gave me a wax warmer. I use it everyday and always think of her when I turn it on. Now, I think of how, though her light may physically be gone from earth, her light still shines when I turn my warmer on every evening. The light shines through the little holes and makes the room illuminate. Just as Donna did to any room she was in.
To her loved ones and friends, God be your peace and guidance during this time and the years to come.

She was a sweetheart. Enjoyed the few times we were able to be together. You will be missed. Heavenly hugs.

My sister Donna had so much love to give. She was always warm and welcoming, when she entered a room she always had a big smile and a hug for everyone. Some of my best memories of Donna were of Fourth of July get togethers at my parents’ house, when I got old enough to want to hang out at the grown up table instead of just swimming with my cousins, Donna always brought the fun! She was such a kind and caring person, she will be missed dearly. My deepest sympathies to all her loved ones, especially our dad and Nikki, sending all my love ❤️
