Donna achieved a successful career in banking by her early thirties. She was a kindred spirit that enjoyed life to the fullest. Donna was the life of the party, enjoyed traveling and the University of Washington Huskies football. She also enjoyed the warmth of the sun, visiting her parent’s lake house and spending time with her family.
In late 2005 she was diagnosed with lung cancer. She waged a courageous and graceful battle and handled her illness with strength and humor. The last ten months of her life were spent reconnecting with family and friends. Numerous relationships were healed, wrongs were forgiven and Donna made peace with God. Her family will always cherish the memories created during these months, especially holding her first Grandson Willy.
Donna passed away on July 30, 2006. She was preceded in death by her Father (Elmer). She is survived by her loving Mother (Gladys), Sisters (Penny and Debbie), Son (Doug / Dana / Step Granddaughter April / Grandson Willy) and Daughter (Nicole / Kip). Fond memories of Nanni June will live in our hearts forever.
