Donna was one of the kindest persons I have ever known. All of the Greenes loved visiting Donna, Mike, Jeff, and Bobby. We all had great times together. What a great family! May Donna Rest In Peace.

Rest in peace Momma. I know you did the best you possibly could manage raising three boys. I hope we turned out to be people you would be proud of. Love You. Jeffrey Beierman.

Our deepest sympathy on the passing of Donna. We were friends of Donna and John for over twenty years.
They loved cruise vacations and I was pleased to help with travel arrangements. What fun they had on those trips. God bless.
