Donna worked at the VFW Post#5706 and was a great bartender.  She was a member of the VFW Ladies Auxillary and the Cooties Organization.  Donna loved to make everyone around her smile, she loved her kids more than anything in this world, she liked to gamble, throw darts, play pool and cards.

Mom loved her family and would do anything for them. She loved getting together and making memories. Moms smile was contagious, and was always great to be around. If you got the chance to have met her you would known how special of a friend and mother she was. She never met a stranger she loved everyone like God wishes everyone would do. She didn’t think she was perfect but everyone else did. She was so amazing in every way. The heart was just so pure and beautiful to anyone who needed it. She loved us kids to infinity and nobody could stop her love for us. She was truly the most amazing women.
