Please accept my deepest sympathy. Donna and I played CYO basketball and walked to and from Holy Trinity at night. So long ago, but never forgotten. Donna had a winning way and will be missed. Bea Coutant Terry

I was saddened to hear about the passing of my friend Donna. We taught together at Gayhead for only one year but continued our friendship years after. We played cards at each other’s houses. We shared many fun times !

It was with shock and sadness that I learned of Donna's passing this morning. I spent many years working with Donna at Myers. Time spent with Donna was always enjoyable. Lunch table discussions and laughter were always memorable. We spend several weekends training for special skills. I always enjoyed stopping by her classroom after children went home to discuss many things. Her humor and insights always uplifting. She was the queen of glitter and proud of it. Even after retirement I enjoyed talking with her at the Myers luncheons. May the love and care of friends and family help you as you go through this difficult time. Carole DiNonno

I've known Donna for 33 years when I started working for the Wappingers Congress of Teachers. She was a Trustee for the Welfare Trust Fund and a member of the Commentator staff. I have some fond memories of our times working together. She became a very close friend and I will always treasure our friendship.
