Donna and I were friends and co-workers at Marietta Coal Company. She was a very nice and caring person but we lost touch when I moved to Florida although we did connect a few times over the years. Prayers for her family during this sad time.

I knew Donna when we worked together in the early 2000s. Though it’s been awhile, I remember how she was always smiling! Good natured and fun lady. God bless her and give her peace.

I met Donna thru bowling over thirty years ago. She was sweet and kind person and I enjoyed her friendship thru the years. She would come to my house for cookouts and I enjoyed talking with her about various topics. I will miss her but know she is in a better place and know longer in pain. May God comfort her family during their time of sorrow.

I knew Donna since high school. She was truly a kind and caring person. It was always fun to go out to lunch with her as well these past few years. It was a pleasure to know but it was even more precious to have her friendship. RIP Donna
