I was heart-broken to read about Donna Marie's passing. Allen (Junior) always spoke of her with such great fondness and love. She was a treasure, a warm and welcoming woman, and I was blessed to have known her.
My deepest sympathies and prayers to the entire family.

Donna Marie was a special cousin to me. Of the main decendents of Allen & Virginia Sanders, 10 children were born over the span of 14 years. I was a member of the younger clan of grandchildren. We youn'uns hung together while the older click held their own. But, 10 years ago or so, dmb (as was her e-mail handle) & I connected after she moved to Grove City. We did lunch a few times and I grew to love this cousin that I didn't really know before then. We spent a week together a few years ago & I learned so much about my family history. i visited her as often as I could but time steals away our perception. I kept thinking, I'm going to call to see if I can visit. Then something would happen on the home front to steal away my thought process & 6 months passed. Then I read she passed & now there's a hole in my heart. I love you my sweet dmb. I'm looking forward to seeing you again & making up for lost time when we next talk. Ginni

Donna Marie, as she was always known to her large and extended Sanders family was always a very special person for me. She was much like her dearly loved mother, Leotha. Both being so kind hearted and loving persons that lived full and adventurous lives. As Donna Marie's uncle of a little older age, it was always my pleasure to tote her around when she came to visit us in Indiana. She never let me forget her delight at my acting crazy when I would see her arrive. She loved telling that uncle Jim would run to her with arms outstretched, miss and end up hugging the nearest tree. So many great memories come from small and often silly doings in a large family such as ours. We will miss your smiles and laughter little niece, aka "Droopy Drawers". Uncle Jimbo
