Donna was one of those ladies that always had a smile on her face. A smile that came from the love of God. You knew in an instant that she was a Christian woman because of the love she showed everyone around her. She never failed to greet me with a hug and a sweet hello when I would see her. My heart is broken that she had to leave her family and friends but Im so thankful that we know she is in Heaven. She will be greatly missed.

I worked with Donna at Mansfield Elementary and taught her children and grandchildren in my classroom. You couldn't find a better Christian lady and family. My prayers go out to her family and friends. She was an avid worker for the Lord and will missed greatly.

I am so sorry to hear of the passing of Donna. She was so beloved, by her friends and her family. She was a dear friend to my mother in law, who always enjoyed their times together, as well as a good friend and neighbor to us all. We always appreciated her kindness and were inspired by her great strength of spirit. Our continued prayers for her family, that they may be comforted by the Holy Spirit at this difficult time and may they truly feel God’s peace and blessings.
