Donna excelled in her profession in the insurance business. She was a claims supervisor and litigation specialist. She retired from Citizens Insurance Company in 2005 due to health issues. She loved to challenge herself, always striving for perfection. Music, movies and crossword puzzles was a passion of hers as it soothed her soul. Also, books were a love, as she always wanted to experience the passion of the words. She was a very giving person, that special gift for a person was always important to her. It brought much joy to bring happiness to others. One of the last things she did was to get her calendar updated with all of the family birth dates. She loved her home, April 1st was always circled on the calendar, the day they moved in. She was loved by many and will be missed dearly.
