My deepest condolences to the family. My mom, Arlene is her cousin. Since I moved to FL when I was 23, I haven’t been able to see my family in IL. I was friends with Dona on Facebook and always got a kick out of her posts. I also enjoyed seeing pictures of her runs in different places. May God comfort and heal your hurt during this time of grieving.
So shocked to hear. Prayers for the family.

I enjoyed meeting Dona in this past Center of the Nation Series. She was always smiling and encouraging. There was 3 of us with the same name so we made a point to take pictures. I got a kick out of her story on the spelling of her name. Prayers for your family during this time
I am so sorry to hear about your mothers passing. I am Dona's cousin Debbie. My family moved to Florida in 1960 so we didn't get to visit often. When we would be in Illinois we would always visit at Aunt Marilyn's and Uncle Jakes. My sister Pam and I and Dona would play together and we had a lot of fun. As adults it was nice to stay in touch through fb and keep up with her races and travels. She was so funny and her posts would make me laugh. She will be dearly missed.
Dona’s cousin in Fl., didn’t get to see Dona very often as I didn’t get to I’ll. very often, the last time I seen her she was with Uncle Jake and we met In Effingham for lunch. Mom was still with us at that time.I’ll always remember Dona’s sense of humor and how she made everyone laugh and feel so good. May she Rest In Peace. So sorry for your loss, I know she will be missed by all who knew her.

Wasn’t around Donaalot , aunt Marilyn and Uncle Jake was two of my favorite people. I always thought Dona was humerous just like her mother. We always enjoyed seeing them all. RIP Dona.
