Donna and Larry loved taking their daughters on family vacations and once they had grandchildren, they always included them on one special trip each year for many years. After the girls were grown, she and Larry took many trips in their motorhome, as well as trips to Hawaii, New York City and a Caribbean Cruise. They both loved to golf and spent their retirement years in a golf course community in Titusville, Florida.
Donna hosted many social gatherings and family reunions at their home. She loved being involved in her grandchildren and great grandchildren’s lives. She will be dearly missed by family, as well as many friends in Ohio and Florida.
