    My Husband and I knew Donna from working with her at Leef Cleaners a few years back, She was a very up beat person, fun to be around and a great laugh. I also seen her a couple of years back when the family was in for pictures for their church directory. I could tell then that one of her greatest joys then was her grandkids.
