Donna was a restaurant manager for many years and was unbelievably compassionate. Her heart and her generosity knew no bounds. Her door was always open for anyone who needed to talk. You could just walk in and people often did. Maw Maw always had a place to sit and an ear to listen for a few minutes or a few hours. Her hospitality, generosity, heart, and home has always been open for anyone to enjoy… and her infamous coffee. She would give you a cup in a heartbeat.

Donna loved to give her time and her focus to others. She was always willing to give just a little bit more. She was truly selfless. She loved her kids and grandkids more than anything. She was perfect, perfect in every respect. She was the epitome of what a Maw Maw is. Her laugh, her smile, her big kisses, her hugs, they were perfect, and she was the perfect momma and Maw Maw. We are all a little closer to perfection to have had her in our lives.
