Donna was born and raised in Ellsworth, WI. She was a dedicated teacher’s aide for over 35 years in the St. Paul Public Schools. For over 60 years, she donated to numerous charities and volunteered with many organizations. She was an active member of many senior organizations, and coordinated many of their events. Donna was filled with love and joy, and spread it to anyone she met. She always lent a hand to anyone in need, and always had a joke to put a smile on your face. She was very strong, hard-working, loving, and dedicated. She had many talents, especially with her crafts and her baking. She will be missed by many.
