Donna had informed her loved ones that the best part of her 90 years was her family. She adored them and they cherished her. She loved spending time with them, often attending her grandchildren’s sporting events and performances. Donna also never forgot birthdays and always sent cards. She enjoyed traveling throughout the United States. She also loved Christmas, chocolate, going to casinos, giggling with her grandchildren and parties/get-togethers of any kind. She always made sure she had plenty of food available, including ice cream and candy for any visitors. Donna’s other love was all of her families’ pets, regardless if they were a dog, cat, rabbit or pig.
