Donna worked for over 25 years as a dispatcher with the Hannibal Police Department.

She enjoyed woodworking, carpentry and remodeling, so much so that in 1981 she took a chain saw to the south side of her house to install a new sun room. Donna was a talented seamstress. She loved to sew and quilt. She also enjoyed country style dancing and square dancing. Donna would enjoy watching shows such as Matlock, The Andy Griffith Show and the Hallmark channel.

Most of all Donna cherished the time she was able to spend with her family and friends.

She was a Baptist by faith.
