“Growing up in Coshocton County, we worked around the farm, growing green beans, reading books and riding bikes...I did well in grade school, enjoying the speech department and won several awards...then I later went to Wilmington College, where I met my future husband Gary the second day I was there...he pulled up in a car as I was going to the movies with a friend. He offered us a ride and saw the movie with us...the next evening he took me out to a second movie.” They had stayed together ever since.
Donna married her husband Gary in Wilmington, Ohio on January 31, 1952, and were together a total of 58 years. She held various jobs in her long and rich lifetime, including working as a stenographer, bookkeeper, and working with small children in preschool day care. She was involved in many activities with her children, including serving as Cub Scout den mother, and booster for the music department at Fairfield City Schools. Her dreams for her children were that they stay healthy and happy.
