Donna graduated from Memorial High School in 1967 and went on to earn an Associate Degree in Accounting from CVTC in 1969. She worked for 20+ years for the Wisconsin Department of Workforce Development until her retirement.  

During her younger years she was a member of Calvary Baptist Church and later in life she joined Valleybrook Church as a member. Donna loved being a greeter at Valleybrook Church and loved attending Bible studies. Bible reading and prayer were cherished by her in her daily life. She enjoyed baking cookies and bread for the 410, Valleybrook Church, Beacon House & Hope Gospel Mission. She loved being able to support many missionaries who are proclaiming The Gospel of Jesus Christ throughout the world. 

Many of Donna’s attributes included a green thumb for her flower garden and vegetable gardens. She enjoyed canning many of the vegetables. Counted cross-stich, making ornaments and other crafts were the hobbies she enjoyed and many were given away as gifts. She raised two Shelties, Freddie and Gracie Allan and one Senior Cat, Sammi. Donna deeply loved her family and her friends. Those left to cherish her memory will remember her kind & generous heart. She was happiest when she was giving of her time and talents to those around her. 

She was preceded in death by her baby brother, her parents, and both maternal & paternal grandparents. Those remaining survivors left to cherish their many memories include her two sisters, Sherry (Brain) Dolan, Deborah (John) Miner-Shong, niece Rose (Joshua) Dolan-Neill, nephew Brendan Doaln, great nieces, Camille Smith, Sinead Dolan-Neill, and great nephew Finn Dolan-Neill.

Deeply sorry to hear of Donna's passing. Each time we lose another classmate we are reminded of the joy and companionship that they gave us and the frailty of all of our lives. 

Rest in piece, Donna

I don't recall Donna but  based on her obit it sounds like she was a woman with a servant's heart and left a sweet fragrance wherever she went.  I suspect she heard "Well done good &  fathful servant from her Lord Jesus.  What more could one hope for?   A life well lived Donna

 It delights my heart when I hear a testimony and in Donna's case,  I did not know her but happy to see that as the years went on after high school she accepted Jesus as her personal Lord and Savior no doubt she is walking the streets of gold and loving being with the Lord I know her Family had to have  Been proud of her heart for missions and her love for the Lord.

I only vaguely remember Donna, but I recognized her high school yearbook picture. It is sad to hear of the loss of another of our classmates.  It sounds like Donna lived a productive and good life and impacted the lives of many in a positive way.  She died too soon, but hers was a life well lived, and she is now receiving her reward.
