She was a member of St. John’s Lutheran Church, Covington. Donna was a kind, considerate and self – sacrificing person. Her keen sense of humor was a delight to all. She was a devoted wife, mother and grandmother. She was a trusted and loyal friend. Her love of the Lord showed in the way she lived. Her death will leave a void in all the lives she touched. We will see her again if we keep the faith. She is safe in the arms of Jesus. Heaven has a new angel!
