Donna retired from the Altoona Area School District in May of 2008. She enjoyed spending time with family and friends, she loved listening to music and going to concerts, shopping, gardening, and traveling. She loved her dog, Rocky and grand-dog Mojo. The light that Donna brought to everyone’s life is the thing pictures are painted about and songs are written about. She was an instant best friend to all that had met her, and lifelong friends with all that knew her.
