To Donna’s family,
I was heartbroken when I found out Donna died. I knew Donna through various organizations throughout the years. I recall many, many baskets of goodies that she always generously donated. I also worked with Donna in real estate. She was such a fair and honest Realtor and appraiser. My last and best memory was the day she came to my house this year after my husband’s death with another of her wonderful baskets in hand. Her thoughtfulness will never be forgotten. She always knew the right thing to give and the right thing to say.
Please take care,

Jim & Laura DeLullo December 16, 2019 at 11:07 pm

Deepest sympathies to all Donna’s family. May God grant you strength, peace and comfort during this difficult time and the days ahead.

Donna had one of the most endearing smiles of anyone I know. She was a childhood friend and I was always in awe of her athletic abilities. I am very sorry for your loss. May God hold all of you in the palm of His hand. Peggy (Simbeck) Hoffman
