She was a faithful member of the Northside Community Church where she would often be seen volunteering in the kitchen.

Donna loved people and was a founding member of the Silver Threads Chapter of the Red Hat Society where she served as the Queen Mum for several years. Above all things in life, Donna loved her family the most. She will be remembered for always having too much food at family dinners, her “nanny-isms” and the way her face lit up when she was around her grandchildren and great-grandchildren.
