Donna graduated high school in Iberia, Missouri, where she was a cheerleader. She was an avid country music lover that loved to dance. Donna faced many challenges in her life. In 2007 she was given a left leg (below the knee) amputation due to vascular disease caused by diabetes. Up to that time she had worked almost every day of her life. In 2013 she went into a coma with septic shock and her family was told to say their goodbyes. Donna did things on her own schedule and was not ready quite yet. She remained a proud woman. Many people, such as her hospice nurse and the maintenance workers at her apartment complex have told stories about going to her home to find her doing laundry, washing dishes and mopping from her wheelchair. Her favorite activities included doing crossword puzzles, watching game shows and true crime stories, sneaking chocolate to her great granddaughter Sarah and snuggling with her great grandson Joshua. Donna was a direct, no nonsense woman who told it like it was. She will be truly missed and is dancing in Heaven with two legs again.
