Donna was a woman of faith, and she will be missed. I would visit her at Brantwood often, before leaving Oxford. She "never" complained of her medical & physical problems---just smiling & happy all the time!!! There is a cozy place for her in Heaven with her Lord & Savior!!! RIP !!!!

Sweet Memory

I use to come visit my grandma across the street and she didn’t have air conditioning back then so I would stay at Donna’s a while she would get so mad but, there was always something to do or someone to see.  Gail and Margaret would come over and I enjoyed seeing them. You don’t appreciate having air conditioning until you don’t have it.  Donna loved everyone and she was so special to me.  Love you Aunt Don Don.
