Some of my children's best memories are events that we did with John, Donna and Jeff, especially bowling. We always shared great food and good laughs. I know how much she loved being in the Northwoods. It was my hope that now that we are living up here that we would be able to spend time together in retirement. She will be missed. She was a very special person with such a big heart and a great smile.
Sending prayers and hugs

I first met Donna when I became sales manager at Preferred Realty in 2000. She was the head book keeper. She had 60 real estate agents coming to her for their commission checks, and management people looking for her to pay bills when money was tight. She always found a way to make everyone happy and get the job done, all while smiling and laughing. She was such a pleasure to work with, we had tons of laughs over the years. She then helped me manage some U S Cellular stores, again working under financial pressures but finding a way to juggle things to keep us afloat. Everyone loved Donna, she will be missed by all who knew her!

We’ve been friends for almost 30 years and shared many special times together. Donna was a wonderful mother, supportive and loving grandmother and great wife. She had many talents and we will miss her greatly. Our love and thoughts are with you.
