I met Donna at J Peters in Mauldin three years ago (during the "early bird special" no less) and immediately felt like I had known her all my life. We had many great times there, The Slice and at her Christmas parties. I will miss her so much as I know all her family and friends will. She was a sweet and bold spirit.

I am a boat adrift on the water The rudder is broken, the anchor is lost Searching the horizon for a spot of land Afraid to hope, afraid to dream The vast emptiness overwhelms as if it will surely sink us into the abyss But suddenly, a small light appears in the distance The beacon of hope so needed It is far away, but present A reminder of memories, happiness and love not lost And then it seems the fear diminishes, not gone, but less And hope seems possible

I had the privilege to work and live beside Donna for years . She was one of the sweetest and most caring individuals I’ve ever known. She loved people and doing for others. She was independent and strong and wasn't afraid to stand her ground when she was right. She will be missed by many . Just for you Donna, Go Tigers !!!!!
Peace of mind is a call away. We’re here when you need us most.

I loved Donna. She was my friend. I can hear her voice singing Anne Murray Spread Your Tiny Wings and Fly Away. If you didn't know, Donna could NOT sing and she was thrown out of chorus for singing that song. Of course, that is her version of the story. Anytime I heard that song I would tape it on my phone and text it to her. Donna loved Denise, her family and all her friends. I will miss her.

Donna was such a special person and dear friend. When we first met, it was as if we had been friends for years. I loved golfing with her, she was an awesome golfer and taught me a lot to improve my game. She was polite, kind and sometimes a practical joker. Always a lot of laughs. We always adressed each other with "Hey Buddy, hows it goin today?" She introduced her family to us and always made us feel as if we were a part of it. Donna, you will be missed!!! Till we see you again, hit em true and straight, and save us a tee time. Leah Mcgee and Judy Hummel

Thoughts and prayers for your family. I haven't seen Donna in years, but never forgot her. I worked with her for years at the Dealership. How she couldn't wait for a day off, or the weekend, to play golf. How she loved that game. I really enjoyed being around her and her sense of humor. I was shocked when I saw this today. I was watching the video tribute for Riley Faith, the precious girl that lost her life to cancer. I wouldn't have known about Donna's passing if I hadn't been. She left everyone way to soon.

I extend my deepest condolences to the family and friends of Donna. It is evident from your words and my own experience that she had a profound impact on those around her. The connection I felt, despite being on opposite sides of a rivalry, speaks to the power of shared passions and mutual respect. Donna was a strong and courageous person, fighting through challenges and emerging as a survivor again and again. The admiration and respect I have for her are a testament to the kind of person she was and the positive influence she had on others. Losing someone who leaves such an impression on our lives is never easy. I knew her for only a few short years, but she certainly made an impression on me. During this difficult time of grief and loss, may her loved ones find comfort in the memories shared, the moments cherished, and the impact she made on those fortunate enough to have known her. Once again, my heartfelt condolences go out to all who mourning the loss of Donna. May she rest in peace, and may you find strength and support in the memories and bonds you shared with your dear friend. Cheers (with a very cold Coors Light and a side of bourbon for sipping)!
