We were blessed to meet Donnabelle in January. She and I had been exchanging letters since last summer. Her sharp wit, and kindness will be remembered. To meet her was to love her. She will be missed.

I fondly remember going with Kayla to Grandma Donnabelle’s. She always had a lemon drop for us! She was such a neat woman who will be dearly missed.

I was blessed to be Donnabelle's care giver for the last year and half. She always said that I was a blessing to her- but it was I that was blessed to have her in my life- she taught me many things- from cooking, crocheting, canning, and the special love she gave me. I'll always remember our afternoon card games (which she was a card skark)...and always won!!.
Rest in peace my dear friend. I loved you!!

She was everything a grandma should be but better. She was so witty and kind. She was always a phone call away, there wasn’t a day that went by that we didn’t talk, her door was always open and you never left on a empty stomach. She would always reminded me to do what makes me happy, live life and just let things go. She was loved by many and will be forever missed.

When we count our blessings, we count Grandma twice.

Donnabelle was a wonderful and caring lady. She loved her family and loved life. She supported many community activities. Donnabelle would show up at our business with a box of cookies to brighten our day and put a smile on everyone's face. She will be missed by all. Patti and David you have many great memories. My thoughts and prayers are with you.

Our deepest Sympathy for you and your families during this time.
So many memories of our families spending time together when we were young. We never wanted for good food and a good time.

Aunt Donnabelle was so very thoughtful after Mom's passing and I so enjoyed our visits.
