Donna grew up in the Fishtown area. She went to elementary school at St. Anne’s Catholic School and later on received her GED. For the past 25 years, Donna worked at Somerton Center starting out as a receptionist and working her way up as a unit clerk, even working through the pandemic as a CNA. Donna loved her job so much and her co-workers even became family to her. Even with Donna’s illness it still never stopped her, she still wanted to volunteer her time at the center because she loved her residents and missed her co-workers so much. Donna lived her life to the fullest each and everyday. She got to escort her daughter Erica down the aisle at her wedding and even see her beloved granddaughters go to their first day of school. Donna loved being a grandmother more than anything to three wonderful boys and being the auntie/granny to the two girls. She loved to spoil each and everyone of them. Donna loved spending her time down the shore at her parent’s house or Uncle Tommy’s house especially going to Rio Grande Diner for their French onion soup which she loved. Donna will be remembered for being the sweetest, kindest, strongest and the most selfless person-always ready to help anyone who needed it and always with a smile on her face.
