She moved to Louisiana as a teen to live with her father. She graduated high school there, had her daughter and worked for many years at Western Electric where she made great friends such as Marge and Jon Snyder. She then relocated to Houston, TX where she was married and her son was born. After moving back to Louisiana for several years she made her way back to Tennessee where she could be closer to family in Greenbrier, Glasgow KY and Indiana. She worked at and retired from Aladdin Industries.
Donna was a very creative person and often had several different projects in the works at any given time. Often times you could see the results of her creativity in her decorating. Holidays were especially important to her, but Halloween was always her favorite. She was an avid reader and many would catch up with her at the local library. Because she had read most every fiction book they had she was on the call list for any new book they received.
A Life Celebration Service honoring Donna will be held on Saturday, April 16th at 2:00 P.M. from the Chapel of Springfield Funeral Home. Visitation with the family will be one hour prior to the service.
