Donna could light up a room when she walked in, and her laughter and love was contagious. She had an incredible sense of style and when you went to her home, she would prepare you an amazing dinner with a beautifully set table. She had a wide variety of interests including planning social events for friends and family, interior design, traveling with friends, and her much loved dogs.
