April 21, 1955 – January 7, 2021
How do you tell such an important woman in your life what a difference she's made, or how many times the sound of her voice has lifted your spirit and given you the courage to keep following the path of your dreams? How do you find the words to thank her for the sacrifices she's made -- for the ones you know about and the ones she's never told you of, and the countless times she put your needs before her own?
Mom/Donnamarie, it can't easily be put into words the way everyone who knew you felt about you, but we hope you always know how deeply we love you, respect you, and thank you for the countless ways in which you've helped make our lives what they are today.

Donnamarie was a dear person and she had a beautiful and vibrant spirit, and a huge, loving heart. Shannon and Aleigh, you certainly were your Mom’s world. Her life revolved around you, and in doing all she could to care for you both, in assuring your happiness, and in making sure you knew you were loved. How blessed you are to have had such an awesome Mother! May all the wonderful memories you’ve made with her help lighten your spirits and comfort you always. She is never further away from you at any given time than a memory, sparked by the remembrances that only she could have created for you through her loving devotion and a life well lived. Donnamarie, may you dance, sing and joyfully frolic in your new heavenly home.
Heartfelt condolences to you Shannon and Alexandra. You are in our thoughts and prayers.
Love, Bruce and Chris
