Donna and I were married in 1974 and had our 3 wonderful daughters Erika, Jessica and Amy together. It saddens me that you passed. I will always remember our times together.

Where do I start? I’ve known you my whole life. Having you as my babysitter was such a blessing. I couldn’t have asked for anyone else. I remember this one time me and Ethan were suppose to take a nap and instead we turned on Scooby doo and hid under the table when we heard you coming. Any other babysitter would have gotten mad but instead you decided to try and ply hide and seek with us. You became like a grandma to me and you will always be in my heart. I love you grandma Donna and I am glad you are at peace now❤️

Donna babysat my oldest granddaughter. She also had a grandson staying at her daycare. My granddaughter and her grandson became very close growing up. Still friends to this day. My granddaughter was a little older than her grandson and she helped and protected him when he was little. So glad you were her babysitter because you became my friend. You will not be forgotten my friend. ❤️🤗😊
