She had a true love for children.

In 1994, Donna moved into the Hi-Rise Apartments in Milaca. She made a lot of wonderful friends there that enjoyed taking walks, doing puzzles and 2:00 coffee with treats. Donna loved to spend time with family, playing cards and being with her grandchildren. She loved going on trips with her cousin, Margie, and doing sleepovers with the grandkids. She always looked forward to the holidays to enjoy some great food and watching old family videos.
