Donna was an absolute angel of a woman who was always looking out for others and truly selfless in her walk through life. She was graceful and caring, compassionate and faithful. She and Bob personified marriage, family, kindness, and love. We were so blessed to be part of their journey and amazing lives, and they are both dearly loved and missed by all of the Spring Hills Family. Our care and deep sympathy extend to their lovely family who carry on their spirit of goodness and light.

Donna and dear, Bob, were co-captains of all the events in their apartment house at Siena Mercy for many years. Bob made coffee every morning and Donna made everyone feel at home! Donna couldn't have been more dear. They were very loving and joyful people. Missing them both. Love, Gerry Geritson, the Brogan family and the residents at Siena.

I remember how much Aunt Donna cared about her extended family in Northwest Ohio. Very often, she would come to visit and stay with our family. I remember big family breakfasts followed by big potluck dinners where she could see her brothers, sisters and nieces and nephews. She made an effort to always attend graduation ceremonies and parties, weddings, baby showers, etc. She was a beloved Aunt and will be very much missed by all.
