Donna was born in Lowell on December 11, 1957.

Donna was an avid reader, enjoyed traveling, going to Foxwoods, crocheting, playing bingo but most of all spending time with and spoiling her grandson Brock; he was and forever will be her PRIDE & JOY! She was the proudest Mammie, the bond and love they shared was so profound and absolutely precious. You would often find her enjoying lake life at “Brock’s Beach” that she had Pappy build just for him. If she wasn’t building sand castles and moats she would be catching sun fish with him. She treasured every second with him and made so many beautiful & loving memories. She was strong, brave, selfless, kind hearted and just the most generous woman we have ever known. A beautiful woman with the most beautiful heart to match who always and without hesitation put everyone else’s needs first.
