There aren’t enough words to properly memorialize Donna. Here are but a few: joyful, kind, compassionate, generous, humble, hard-working, fun-spirited, smart, beautiful, artistic, creative, strong, and brave. Simply put, Donna had the gift of making everyone she loved — and literally everything she touched — truly better. Donna’s incredible impact on her family will live on eternally.

In lieu of a funeral, Donna’s family is holding a celebration of her life from 1-5 p.m., Sept. 21, at the Cedar Gap Shelter near Stockton Dam.

In lieu of flowers, the family asks that donations be made to the American Cancer Society.
