A true friend and "Buddy" for 63 plus years. Softball brought us together and a common birthday kept us celebrating life together. Thanks for sharing Angie with us, a more loving, caring partner hasn't been created. I will miss hearing your, when are you coming Toots ? Happy we did. Katie & Nan

My memories of Donna are of our softball playing days. We were both in the infield. Our team played all over the Detroit area. She was a great player!!
Also remember the parties in her basement. A lot of fun times. She was a dear friend and will be missed.
My condolences to Angie and family.

I was very sad to hear of Donna's passing. I will always remember her kind ways and willingness to help everyone. She had a great way of making people laugh and feel "at home". She will always hold a special place in my heart. My thoughts and prayers go out to Angie and the family. Sincerely, Aretta Cullen
