I was very saddened to hear of Donna's passing. She and I worked together at Sears. She was a great co-worker and taught me a lot about selling maintenance agreements. She always spoke so highly of her family and really kept us laughing. The world will suffer the loss of such a great person but Heaven has added an angel. May God bless and keep you in his tender care.

Dear Art, Michael, Mark, Francie and Margie,
I was so saddened to hear of the passing of your beloved wife and Mother, Donna.

She first touched my life as a child and meant the world to me. She had that rare ability to light up a room with her joyful laughter. Her love of life made her an absolute joy to be around. She adored all of you.

Most of all she would want you all to be happy and find peace in knowing that up in Heaven there are a lot of great conversations going on filled with heart felt laughter. She will always remain a true original and I feel honored to have known her.

I am truly sorry for your loss.

I can still remember alot of fun summer days on Yorkleigh Drive hanging around the pool....Mrs. Beebe was always so nice to all of us young "tween" girls, I can almost hear her loud laugh.
Thinking of all of you during these difficult times.

I'm so sorry to hear of Donna's passing. My family spent many years at North Presbyterian worshipping and working with the Beebe family. My mom and dad (Dorothy & Howard) always enjoyed Donna's sense of humor and dedication to her family and church. My prayers are with you.
