Donna's Family, Your Mom was a trooper-she was a strong and independent lady who always had a smile on her face. The picture here shows her as I remember always seeing her. May you all share stories/memories that warm your hearts and bring you comfort. Our deepest sympathy, Don & Michelle Murray

Terry, Brenda, and Tammy. You are in our thoughts and prayers. Donna will be missed. She would always bring a laugh out of everyone. I remember the white knuckle rides with her in the car when she was in a hurry. She always said, "just be quiet and hag on". She was one of a kind. May she rest in heaven with family and friends. PEACE.
