Donna was a free spirit who spent much of her younger years traveling and living in different places around the country. Eventually, she returned to the Osteen-Enterprise area where her family has deep roots. She then worked for various doctors and hospitals in the Sanford, Deltona and New Smyrna Beach areas in women’s health and primary care before retiring. Donna had a sharp intellect and a deep love of literature, science, and logic which she passed along to her children. She believed in fairness and freedom for all people. One of her most famous quotes that has been passed along was her way of keeping her children safe while swimming, “Never swim where you cannot see the bottom of the water.” Her family thinks this is great advice.
