In her younger years, Donna was a competitive swimmer, brought home many medals, in 1965 she took first place for her Zinnias. She was a horticulturalist, and member of a local flower club. She loved shooting pool and playing euchre, and enjoyed attending estate and garage sales. She listened to 80s Top 40 music in her free time, and got the most enjoyment in life from caring for her family and spending time with friends. Donna was compassionate with a heart of gold, and she loved to laugh. She was a strong willed, stubborn individual but with a great sense of humor. Donna will be dearly missed.
