It is with great sadness that the family of Donna Tilley announces her passing on July 9, 2018. Donna, 69, of Glendale was born August 3, 1948 in Springfield, Illinois. She moved to Arizona with her family in 1953. Donna’s favorite thing in the world was to be with family and friends. She was the glue to our family, always bringing people together with tons of amazing food (we will all miss her cooking!), a very quick wit and lots of laughter. Her door was always open, and her home held a warmth that is hard to replicate. She is survived by the love of her life Bob Tilley, their two children, Heidi (Chris) and Adam (Janelle), and her grandchildren, Kaela, Makennah, Kyler, and Emily. A viewing will be held at 9:00am Friday, July 13, 2018 at Phoenix Memorial Park and Mortuary located at 200 W. Beardsley Road, Phoenix. Funeral Services will begin at 10:00am following the viewing.

What a beautiful lady Donna is. She has always taught me the love of cooking for your family. How to add and take out things so it was just perfect. She was a savior to me. From giving birth to my children to just listening when I needed to cry. I love her with all my heart. I miss you Donna.
Love you forever
