Donna was a devout woman of faith that served and loved the Lord. She was a heavily active member of the Cornerstone Community Church in Buckhannon and often spent her time volunteering there and lending a helping hand to those in need. She was the solid rock of her family, providing comfort and safety no matter the cost. She loved her family with all she had and was always praying for their happiness and success. Their walk with God was just as important to her as hers. After retiring from Armstrong Flooring in Beverly, WV, she dedicated her life to her church, family and most importantly the Lord. She touched the lives of many and will be dearly missed by her family and those around her. A celebration of life service will be held on Saturday, October 26, 2019, at 1:00 PM, at the Cornerstone Community Church with Pastor John Darnall officiating. In lieu of flowers, the family has requested donations be made to the Cornerstone Community Church at 73 Crescent Ave, Buckhannon, WV 26201.
