I was so sorry to hear of Donna's passing. She was the best bus driver ever and looked after my three latch-key kids for years - going above and beyond to make sure they got home safe. I will not ever forget that. I loved running into her at Food Lion - where we would chat and catch-up. She was a gracious and kind lady. She will be missed.

Donna was a wonderful woman and mother. As a child and a friend of her daughter, she took care of me as if I was her own. Her cooking was amazing, her smile was contagious, her hugs were comforting, her home was welcoming, and her heart was warm. She holds a special place in my heart and there is no doubt that her spirit lives on through everyone who knew her. R.I.P. Donna. You left your imprint on me and you are loved.

I met Donna back in 1986 when I moved on Truman Road. She has the sweetest spirit and her smile was contiguous. She always made me feel welcome. To the family, cherish your precious memories.

I was so sad to hear of Donna's passing. She was my bus driver when I was in elementary. We also lived in the same neighborhood, and I played with Erin. I would often fall asleep on the bus, and she would discover me when she got home and would take me home. She was a sweet woman, and I'm sure blessed those she met with her presence. Praying for the family in this difficult time. The last picture I have of her was holding my one month old almost 15 years ago. Wish I could find it to post.

I am truly sorry to hear about Donna. She was always thoughtful and friendly to me and my family. She had told me about her illness some time ago, but I was praying she was better. My condolences to the whole family. May she Rest In Peace.
