    I enjoyed visiting with Donna when I worked in xray at the hospital, and then when our oldest boys used their driveway as a "bus stop" for several years. Donna will be missed in our community. Our sincere sympathies to her whole family. You'll be in our prayers. Sincerely, Chuck and Laurie Dunn

    Such a beautiful lady, and the best mother in law, nurturing to all family and friends. Donna I've always loved and missed you these past years, and loved when I got to join family celebrations to visit with you. I love you for your acceptance, guidance, and lessons taught years ago, which I will never forget. Sleep in peace, and please hug my momma for me♥️
