Donna retired from Indiana State University in Terre Haute as an assistant professor in the School of Business where she taught business education for 26 years. Previously, she taught three years at Westfield High School in Westfield, Illinois where she and her former husband Dr. G. Kent Stewart began their careers in education.
Donna raised her daughters in Terre Haute, Indiana. After retirement, Donna volunteered her time at the YMCA of the Rockies in Estes Park, Colorado. Donna loved to travel and frequently to the beaches of Clearwater, Florida, with her daughters and grandchildren. Donna felt most at home in the mountains of Colorado.

You can imagine how proud she was when granddaughter, Kristin, and Charlie chose to be married in Estes Park.
