She was fortunate to remain in her new home in the country with her poodle, Tera. She loved cheering for the Twins and Packers and visiting with family and friends. Anyone who knew Donna, knows how much she liked babies. As a child, she always offered to babysit. This love showed true to the very end, where you could see her beam with visits from the grandchildren and great grandchildren. She also enjoyed traveling with Frank and other relatives and later in life with her children. Some of her favorite trips were to Maine in the fall, Calgary Stampede in the heat of summer and to Walton’s Mountain in Virginia. All of the traveling left Donna and her family with t-shirts, mugs and wonderful memories.
