First to Uncle Dale and all of my cousins, I am very sorry for your loss. Aunt Donna was a wonderful wife, mom and aunt. We always enjoyed being in the company of the whole crew when we came to visit from Illinois'....Was there anything she couldn't do? She was a modern day Martha Stewart, Rachel Ray and the DIY Network wrapped into one.....Keep your memories of her close and hopefully they will help ease the pain of your loss...Mom and Dad wish they could be there with you but as you know are not in shape to travel right now but ou are all in our prayers. Love to you all Sandra Laughead Hannon , Bonnie & Denny Laughead, Mary and Glenn Stech and Becky and Glen Wisdom.

What an inspiration Aunt Donna has been to all the families and people who were blessed to have known her! How amazing to raise 9 wonderful children & 24 grandchildren, take care of all those around her and always have a smile on her face and light shining from her heart. Her legacy of love and kindness will live on through her beautiful family and all those who knew her.
