As a young mother, Donna always knew how to balance her family with her work as a dental assistant for more than 20 years. Donna loved family! She loved to play cards, golf, and to travel. She was always willing to make sure she was at every special event for those she loved. No matter how far she needed to go. She loved having holidays, birthdays and special occasions hosted at her home to get the entire family together. We all looked forward to these special times together, because she was such a fantastic cook and hostess. She was a devout member of the Catholic Church. Donna along with her birthday gold envelopes will be greatly missed by her 13 grandchildren and 13 great-grandchildren.
