Donna was always willing to share her time and compassion for those who needed her help. She served as a St. John's Hospice and Mercy Hospice volunteer for many years, providing respite and companionship to Hospice patients and their families. Donna had a strong Christian faith and loved the Lord with all her heart! Wayne and family, please accept my heartfelt sympathies for your loss. May God strengthen and comfort all of you.
