After being a housewife and working as a secretary at her husband Nick's advertising agency in Seattle, she moved to Richland in 1966.

Donna was a devoted and beloved wife, mother, mother-in-law, grandparent and friend. She was good-natured and had a gentle personality. Donna also was known for making humorous statements, loved everyone around her and was loved and highly respected by others. She will be missed by both her family and by many others.

Donna's home for the last two years was at Tranquility Manor where the caregivers and associated staff were a real blessing and were very much appreciated by the family. Thank you so much and God bless you all.

  • So sorry to hear of the loss of your mother. I remember her well, your father also, the many times spent at the Fauntleroy house and your visits to our home at Arroyo. Mom, Gladys, will be 102 in July. She lives with us and I shared the story of your mom with her. She offers her condolences, as well. – Forrest, Carol and Gladys Wills
