Donna and I both volunteered for a concert series at Connecticut Audubon, setting up chairs and tables, helping with refreshments. She often baked fresh cookies and snacks to serve. I remember her as dedicated and hard-working and always ready to help. She was a truly lovely person, and even when the concerts ended, I would bump into her at a store and stand chatting a while. I am saddened to know she's gone. My deepest sympathies to her family and friends.

Donna was a wonderful hiking friend. I will miss her warm, loving spirit as Donna always asked about my life. She shared her passion of nature and was concerned about the environment. Donna also
told me about her fun times dancing with companions.

I wish her family God's peace and love.

With love,
Christine DePiano

Shocked and saddened like everyone else in hearing about Donna's passing. She cared more about pleasing others than her own self. That was never more evident on any given weekend assisting the bride and groom on their special day for more than 20 years. We will miss you Donna.

Our dear friend Donna was an active member of our Meshomasic Hiking Club and was a cheerful participant on many of our hikes. She will certainly be missed by so many of us. We will be thinking about her as we go out into the natural world that she so dearly loved.

We are shocked and saddened to hear about your sister Donna's passing. My husband, Minoru, and I met her 10 years ago at the Fred Astaire dance studio. Donna was always sweet, compassionate, and fun to be with. We miss her greatly remembering many hours we spent together, including evening group lessons, competitions or social events, and talking and sharing food at Max Fish. Donna must be looking so beautiful with her smile, dancing at the dance party in the heaven.

I'm so sorry to hear of your sister's passing. We shared a mutual love for ballroom dance and rescue animals. She will be sadly missed in our dance circle. Donna, I know your wearing your best dance shoes, and they're playing your favorite music, as you so elegantly Waltz through the gates of heaven.

I met Donna at Fred Astaire in Glastonbury and we spent many Friday nights at the studio and then at late night happy hour. She was fun to be around and loved her dancing. I’m sure she’s dancing now.
Sending my condolences to all of her family.
