Donna was a truly great woman-witty and entertaining, loving and a great spiritual mentor to us. Our only regret is that we only got to know Donna when she moved to MP, and we wish we had grown up with her and had more time with her. We are better people having known Donna.

Donna and her husband Dick lived in our Clearview Heights neighborhood in Fredericksburg, VA for a number of years. Many times they generously allowed the neighborhood civic assoc to use their finished basement for neighborhood holiday parties, and they were such gracious hosts. I remember her for being so warm and welcoming.

Donna was a dear and loving friend to my late father Bill Wolfe.
She was loved by all in our family for her generosity, warm spirit
and unflagging support of our Dad.
A cherished memory of my grandson is a visit to San Diego
Donna made with his Great Grandpa who would never have come without Donna's support.
God Bless you Donna for a life well lived.

My memories of Aunt Donna place her proudly as the most positive and joyful person I've had the pleasure of knowing (I am honored to actually be related to such a special woman). With certainty, her spirit will continue to bless us with hope, guidance, and peace.

Sending our love and connection,

Dear Brian, Jan and all of Donna's wonderful family. you have been truly blessed to have had such a wonderful, loving and faithful mother. Her love and faith in God and in human nature were so very evident in her. She loved to believe that everyone was good and she treated everyone with respect and a loving way. She was my best friend when I arrived at the Palms and I loved her dearly. I will miss her so much, but hope to meet her again.

Brian, Jan, and all of Donna's family, words cannot express my sadnesses. May the comfort of God be with you always.

I thought my grandmother was the most remarkable lady in the world. I loved her to pieces, and nobody would ever be as wonderful as her.

But then I met Donna. She stole my heart the second I met her. Donna never ceased to amaze me. So incredible, and I loved being around her every second. She brought joy to everyone around her, always helped others, and made sure you were all right. Pretty incredible. She made me smile no matter what. I love you, Donna.

Those we love don't go away, they're walking beside us every day
