Donna loved her family with her whole heart. Her children were the light of her life and her relationship with her sisters and brothers was a cherished. She was an amazing mother, grandmother, sister, aunt, and friend. She touched the lives of so many people. She will truly be missed and will never, ever, be forgotten.
Donna graduated from the Philadelphia General Hospital School of Nursing in 1968. Donna’s compassion and dedication went beyond her professional responsibilities. Even after leaving nursing to raise her family, she was always taking care of someone. Her inherent and selflessness was evident everyday of her life.
Donna met David in 1967 and were married in June 1970. They shared 52 years of marriage and were the love of each other’s lives. Donna and Dave traveled the world together to places such as Africa, Alaska, Italy and Scotland. They enjoyed hosting and spending time with family and friends. They would unwind at the end of the day watching British mysteries together.
Donna was a giving, caring and selfless soul. She stretched out her arms to anyone willing to walk into them. She enjoyed telling stories of her nursing days. Her passion for history and antiques led her to become heavily involved in the Questers. She became president of her local chapter. Donna would share her passion of history with anyone. Her endless knowledge was magnificent. She would mentor others and do anything for anyone.
Donna enjoyed playing golf. Donna enjoyed sharing her talents as a seamstress and quilter. She was a wonderful cook. For any holiday or event, Donna always embraced the holiday spirit and her enthusiasm was contagious. She was always the one to bring family together.
She fully enjoyed life and those she met. She could always find the good in everyone. She made the time to show up for everyone, provided care, sound counseling and trustworthy advice. She simply wanted to brighten lives and she surely did. Peace and caring permeated her, and kindness felt like it was her middle name.
