I'm so sorry to hear of Aunt Kay's passing. She was such a sweet, kind person. I have very fond memories of the many times my family spent at Aunt Kay and Uncle George's place in Coshocton. They and their family were truly an extension of our family. I belive she is with George now, and they can continue their great love story in Heaven.
My deepest condolences to everyone.

Sending out condolences to the entire family. I’ve only heard amazing things about Ms Donna, from just a couple of her children, Greg & Kris and their children. Wish I would have met her! Thinking of you all..

Truly sorry to hear of the passing of our Aunt Kay. Many wonderful memories as a child while spending summers vacation days in my youth hanging out with my cousins. I will always remember and cherish her great sense of humor. She laughed at all of my stupid jokes whether funny or not (typically not so funny). God bless and keep you Aunt Kay! You were a very special aunt, mother and wife.
