How lucky we were to have you as our neighbors! Your mom and dad were the only adults we were allowed to call by their first names. They were unique, and uniquely loved. As for your mom, take your favorite sitcom neighbor and then make her warmer, funnier, more loving, and even livelier, and that was Donna. Her dramatic ways of living and of telling a story brought energy and fun wherever she went. She was always up for an adventure, or to help. What a gift from God she was! I know how much she meant to my parents, and to us kids. We will never forget her.
John & I loved being with your Mom and Dad at all the Knights of Columbus events and working together on many of them also being together at St Rays. Donna was so enthusiastic and no matter the event always All In.. It is always hard to say Good bye to a parent but hold each other close and remember all the good, not just good times but good actions they participated in. With much sympathy
So sorry to see that your mom has passed. I will remember her for her infectious energy and cruising around in the convertible with the top down. My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family.
Heidi Marie, I loved Aunt Donna's vivacious personality and spirit for making the best of each day! "Carpe diem!" I dedicate my costume closet to both Grandma Rita and Aunt Donna :) I still have costumes from your Mom that she had sewn for Sweet Adeline competitions. I'm so sorry that your Mom passed during this crazy 2020 year. Gone, but never forgotten. Love, Heidi Louise
