When I heard of Donna’s passing, much like everyone else, I was shocked! I own a little store in downtown Amherst and Donna was a loyal customer. She was always easy to talk to, have a laugh, share stories and was a determined woman. She was so excited about the big vacations she had planned for this year... before Covid hit. Recently we talked about all our vacations being cancelled and she was disappointed but was hoping to reschedule them in the future.
I just wanted those that loved her to know that even though I knew her from coming into the store... she was a peach. I think she came to every one of our fashions shows and enjoyed being with us. Donna always had a smile on her face. She left us way to soon but will be remembered fondly and will be definitely be missed.
God Bless all of you, family and close friends, during this difficult time. You’re in my thoughts and prayers.

My fondest memories of Donna were from my earlier years at St Mary's of Wakeman. She and Rich were such regular members of the choir and so supportive of the community spirit. Her friendly spirit was kind and easily accepting of me, a newcomer. In more recent years I enjoyed keeping up with her on facebook. She had just learned that my daughter was married into her family. I am imagining her happily sitting with Rich and watching the highs and lows here. I can imagine her calling over an angel, and asking the angel to go down and help her beloved to get through these sad days of letting go. God bless your memories!

I remember that I promised you deviled eggs on my porch one time and we did it! You laughed and visited for a day. I know you are laughing with Rick now! Prayers for your family.
