Donna had a great love for animals and her home hosted a wide variety of God’s creatures. From Guinea pigs and Hamsters, to Dogs, a Porcupine, Ducks, Turtles, a Sparrow Hawk, and even a Monkey. To say her home was always full would be an understatement. She was especially proud of the secret garden she created to welcome in the wild birds. She and her husband Bill would have Scrub-Jays that would return to their yard year after year to be hand fed peanuts. Donna loved to paint and made beautiful pieces of art. Many will remember the flowers she created that graced the walls of her home. Donna dreamed of visiting Scotland and of becoming a pilot. Our love flies with her as she continues her journey. Though she never got to fly she did lead an eventful life. She will be greatly missed and remain in our hearts for always.
