Donna Hamilton was energetic and a very hard worker. She was always willing to help. She was fiercely independent. When the men's only Ruritan club wouldn't let women into their club, Donna spearheaded a movement that started a new chapter that let in both men AND women. She was kind, funny, and a wonderful friend. And I will miss telling her not to shoot my foot off when we went out, because she was always packing! She will be missed. My deepest sympathy to all her family and her boyfriend Steve.

Oh my , I am at a loss for words right now. Donna and I were best friends beginning with sixth grade. We spent so much time together, going to music events, dances, the pool, spending weekends at her parent’s home in Richardsville! I am just so sorry to hear this. Please know that I cherish my memories of growing up with Donna. Dear Family, I send you my sincere condolences, and I pray for your strength during this sad loss.
