Donna worked for 22 years at the Gateway Region of USA Volleyball. She was the most beautiful person, both inside and out. She had an unbelievable enthusiasm and excitement for life that was completely contagious. Everyone that knew her, loved her. She touched so many lives. She was a mom, wife, mentor, best friend, role model, volunteer, expert baker, fine author of scavenger hunt riddles, coach, tutor, crocheter. She loved to dance, enjoyed happy hour, the occasional slot machine and fishing. But most of all, she loved being with her family and friends. Until we meet again, we will always love you.
