I would do anything to hear your voice and give you a hug one last time. We have made so many great memories together over the years. Loved the days when we would just sit outside and talk having a great time. Now I sit outside look up to the sky and talk to you. I miss you so much. The pain I’m feeling is unexplainable. Going from seeing you every day to not seeing you has been very hard for me. I will forever carry you with me. I love you so much grandma thank you for loving me.

I have Wonderful Memories of when I was growing up in Superior & going for the ride to Ironwood with my Grandma & Folks to visit. We always went to the farm when we were there & visit my Cousins & remember Donna well as we were only a year apart. A few times I went to the farm & stayed for a few days to visit with her & the Family taking the bus there. My Heart goes out to her Family & Friends for Peace, Strength & Comfort at this time. God Bless....Pam

Grandma Grandma Grandma
I look up to the sky and talk to you. I would do anything to hear you reply. I love you and miss you so much. Words can’t explain the pain I’m feeling. You’re my queen, my world, and my best friend. You and grandpa were always there for my siblings and I. Took amazing care of us and raised some mature(sometimes) young adults. You've taught us so much and prepared us for so much. You did your best to make sure we were happy and had everything. Grandma always held my heart from the very start. My favorite part of the day was coming home to see grandma and grandpa. Going from seeing you everyday to see you later is a different kind of feeling. You have now moved to my heart. You’ve become part of us and will remain with us is our memories forever. I have an angel in heaven and I call her grandma. I love you so much.

I rember her always being there with for the kids (Chas and Alicia) whenever there was anything going on at the school. She always had a smile and a friendly "hello " to share.
The family has our deepest condolences.

Family meant everything to Donna and we were so lucky to be a part of her family. She truly cared about people and showed it with her love and kindness. We always looked forward to visiting with her and having time to talk and catch up about life. Sharing worries, events, and happy times were always important. Of course laughter was a big part of any get together! Just thinking about Donna brings a smile and so many happy memories. We will always love and miss our sister.

Donna will be missed so much by our entire family. When she married my brother so many years ago, she became one of us and we have always loved her and enjoyed spending time with her.
One time when I was in Vegas visiting, Donna and I went to play bingo at 9 am. I was flying out a few hours later but we thought we should get one more round of bingo in before I left. We had so much fun and lots of laughs, that's how it was when we were together.
My heart goes out to everyone who loved Donna as much as I did. I wish I could be there to hug you all.
