Donna loved sports and was very active in her younger years. She thoroughly enjoyed watching her children and grandchildren participate in sporting events, plays, and musicals. Donna was a member of First Christian Church of Girard. In her spare time, she liked to refinish furniture, quilt, crochet and needle stitch.
