Donna loved and was involved in the lives of her family. She instilled values of hard work ethic, and a quirky sense of humor. She was known by family to be stubborn and tell you very bluntly her opinion, like it or not. She was known as making herself available as “the taxi” for many family and friends, when needed.
Her favorite past-time as playing games and catching up with family and friends on social media, chatting on the phone or getting together with her childhood friends, “The Goose River Girls.”
She worked many jobs over the years; but spent most of her life working as a machine operator for Crowe Rope and Osram Sylvania or as a CNA. She retired as a CRMA.
Walk through visits will be held on Thursday, January 28, 2021 from 5-7 pm at Hall Funeral Home, 949 Main Street, in Waldoboro.
