Donna’s intelligence and social skills were apparent in all she was involved in. She earned her Bachelor’s degree from Aquinas College and went on to teach for Saginaw Public Schools. She was a volunteer for Butterworth Hospital Guild; with who she enjoyed holiday theatre trips to NYC taking in Broadway shows. Donna never met a bridge game she didn’t like.
