Donna had strong work ethics and was blessed with a loving and caring heart. Through the years, she served as a Sunday School Teacher as well as keeping the church tidy and clean. Donna was ready to care for the elderly and anyone in need.  She loved spending time with her grandchildren, and could be found sitting on the floor playing games and giving candy to her great-grandchildren.
