I just read the news that this sweet, caring and wonderful individual has gone to be with the Lord. Donna, you made my time at Turner Elementary truly an amazing one! You made bad days fun. You made dark days lit. You made the kids happy as well as every adult. I remember decorating the lounge at TE with fall, summer, and Christmas decor. You loved celebrating people! There was no one that you didn't care for in any way! You will me sorely missed, my friend! May you be in rest..... until I will see you again, my friend!

Donna was definitely one of God's angles loaned to us for a short time. She loves her Lord and Savior thru and thru. You could always expect a hug from her and she knew when you needed one but would always say "Thank you, I needed that" and giver little giggle.
Heaven just got sweeterknowingwe will getto see her again.
Our prayers and thoughts are with you, the family that the Lord gives you the strength to get thru the days ahead and and His loving peace to fall on you.

Donna was such a sweet and precious perso, and her words and actions were true examples of her love for our Savior. We had just spoken last week, and we will meet again in heaven. Praying for you all.

We had many fun times together at Turner Elementary but even more fun and silly times outside of work. I can’t put into writing how much Donna meant to me. She will be deeply missed.
