    To the family and friends of Donna:

    We are sorry to hear of Donna’s passing. She was a blessing to us when my mother was sick and alone in Worthington. Donna organized the long trips for the rest of the family to visit my mother. I will always be grateful for the love Donna exhibited to us during that difficult time. May she rest in peace.

    Colleen and I were so saddened to hear of Donna’s passing. Unfortunately, we won’t be able to attend the service. But we will keep you in our prayers and thoughts. Donna and I served on the Church council, and Colleen and Donna taught Sunday school together for many years.

    Donna was a long-time friend from our days working in the St. Louis Park School District. We enjoyed many Book Club discussions, OLLI classes, and birthday lunch celebrations with mutual friends. She will be missed by us all.
