Donna was a loving stay at home mother of four. Donna was a loyal servant of God and was a member of the Living Hope Church family in Merrillville. She could always be counted on lending a hand and volunteering wherever there was a need. If the need was too great for her, she would happily volunteer her children.

Even though Donna has left this world, her spirit and love will live on through her children, grandchildren, and every life she touched with her love, kindness, and generosity.
