Our family met Donna through the Valley Mills Friends Church. She worked with the youth group among other activities. She always had ‘adult’ answers to our teen age questions and capers. Donna was someone to model your life after. Our condolences to Kenny and family.

Thank you- the last few years had been difficult for Donna but we were able to have her at home during all this coronavirus.. Many have not been as fortunate. Take care.

I worked with Donna at LSA in the 1980's. She was such a nice person. I still use a great recipe that she shared with me! I don't know any of her family, but I feel like I do because she spoke so lovingly of all of you. I am so sorry for your loss.

Kenneth Almon

Thank you Nancy-Donna really enjoyed her years at LSA. She often spoke of you and others. She loved cooking and would be happy to know one of her recipes was still being used.Take care.
