  • Theresa & Holly & John & grandgirls & extended family .I first met Donna in her freshman yr at MVHS ,we had Geo Politics together. I was a year ahead of her and our friendship continued longer when we were in Restaurant Services in the same class just 1 yr behind me . I have memories of her and Janice ( Momma) after graduation we have no around together a lot. I fondly called her “birdie “ whenever we would see each other we would share some laughs. Please know she was so kind and saw the best in everything. Deepest sympathy to all

  • I’m so sorry about the loss of Donna. I was her eighth grade Reading teacher at the “old” middle school. Donna always worked hard and with a smile on her face. I would occasionally see her around town and she always seemed surprised when I called out to her. Again, sorry for your loss.

  • I’m sorry for your loss…I got to know Donna more recently through her time volunteering at the Food Pantry at Vineyard Church Delaware County and through the time she spent volunteering and attending services as well. She was a wonderful lady, full of great cheer, always wanting to bless others and help out where ever she could. I will greatly miss her. Praying for you and your family.
