To My Lovely FB and Business partnering Friend Donna and her lovely family.
Donna was such a passionate faith healer, with a positive attitude, and we would talk just about supporting each other for anything we needed. I was fortunate to meet Donna some 18 or so years ago on a phone call. Teaching her silva method. I am so thankful for that call, and so thankfulf for the little time I spent in Donnas presence. She always attended events and was known to be the person to supply Treats, coffees and teas! Donna was a true gift to everyone she met! My heart feels for those she left behind. Yet Donna, be it Mother, sister, aunt, friend to the many you served YOU WILL ALWAYS BE PART OF OUR HEARTS and WE WILL KNOW HOW TO MOVE FORWARD CARRYING YOUR LEGACY YOU LEFT FOR US, So we too will be able to do this for others as well. You were an angel and saint in this life, I can only imagine what your soul will bring to us all for our remaining days here on earth. Your love presence Protecting your large extended family you created in your life here. You will be FOREVER loved and remembered! Much Love, Light and Blessings to your lovely family. April

I really didn’t know Donna, but her son Richard, is my brother-in-law and I’ve known him for about 28 years. He is a good man, a hard worker and caring person. She had to be a great mom to have raised such a great son. I also know her daughter Deb, which is also a good, hardworking person and had a lot of compassion. So, saying that, I know Donna had to be a great woman that was warm, caring and compassionate because I see all of that in her kids. Rest In Peace Donna.

My grandma was such a wonderful person and I have many memories of spending time with her when I was a child and into my adulthood!! I am so thankful she was part of my kids life and we will always miss her and think of her! It is difficult to just pick one memory I have of my grandma, there are so many lovely memories that I will carry with me forever!! But I will always remember and miss her baking yummy holiday cookies and breads, going on picnics, and how strong of a person she was!! I love you so much!!! Love, Elizabeth ❤️

I am Donna’s little brother, Eddie. Donna is a wonderful big sister who was very close to me all the years of our “growing up.” We played together, and also with our friends every day. In our very young years we would be seen with me riding my bike while she rode her airplane. Later she convinced me to dress up and play “Mass,” with me being the priest and her being a nun! Later we often went roller skating at Puritas Springs Park. She was a role model for me at Ascension grade school and at St Joseph’s Academy high school by her dedication to education and studying.
Donna was given a gift: Unlike most children, she did not have a Father… – she had three Fathers! Her first Dad, Paul Graver, loved her and our Mom very much, but died very young in a train accident in Cleveland. Then our Mom met a guy named Eddie, and they married just after he was drafted to serve in the Army in World War II. He loved Donna very much, too, and took her as his daughter. He was delighted that she would call him Daddy. He fought bravely in Burma, but was killed in action in 1944, so that Mom, Donna, and I could continue to live in peace and freedom. Then in 1948, a tall dark and handsome man named George met Mom where they worked. He told her he loved her and wanted to be her Husband, and Father to her Donna and Eddie. Those were great years together as Donna and I went through grade school. And by the way, we suddenly had three younger brothers, George Jr, Mike, and Kenny! Dad George was a wonderful loving Father of five, and a very supportive husband to Mom. Unfortunately, just as life was really beautiful, our Dad George took very ill with cancer, culminating in his passing in 1956. In spite of these occurrences in our young lives, we had the constant love of our Mom and three Fathers during these times. Donna later met a man named Bob, they married, and the rest is history.
God Bless and Keep my Sister Donna! Until we meet again. I Love You!
