Donna will always be with you. She was my friend for a long time. We were bowling partners in the late 70s until 2001. The shopping trips with Donna, always fun and surprising! She loved to shop! Buy in quantities, try ’em on at home, bring back what she didn’t like and shop some more. Loved to talk on the phone about anything and was a good listener. Problem solver. May she rest in peace. My deepest condolences to Trilby, Dave and Nancy.

Our deepest condolences. We always enjoyed talking to Donna about genealogy and our family history. She will be greatly missed.
I’m so sorry to hear of Donna’s passing. We were such good friends during our first years living in Sterling Heights as young single teachers. We shared lots of laughs, adventures, and tears. She had a great sense of humor, kind to everyone, and always had a listening ear. I hope that the memories of better times bring you comfort and peace.
