    Donna was one the first people I meet when I moved to Roseville Park. We all got to know it each other ice skating on Stanley’s Pond that year. She is the one who introduced me to her sister Debbie. That was the best thing that ever happened to me and I’m still counting my blessings with our life together. Peaceful Blessings

    I worked with Donna for many years in the dental office. I always admired how meticulous she was in the office as well as in life. I enjoyed our lunches together after she retired. Sometimes we would discuss things that we weren’t sure about, and by our next lunch date, she had researched eveything about it. I’m so sorry for your loss, Jeff. I know how much you loved each other and depended on each other. Take care of yourself, and please let me know when you have the celebration of life. My condolences to Mrs. Baker and the rest of the family.
