With great sadness I watched Donna tumble down a very difficult physical demise. Yet with great joy I know her suffering is now over and she is home with Jesus. I met donna long ago at First Assembly of God, Wheaton and from the beginning I was amazed at her gifting's. God used her in might ways with the the youth ministries. The children loved her and I watched as she helped many of them get jobs at McDonalds. And then she began helping at Bread of Life Food Pantry and everyone who came in contact with her was blessed by her positive personality. So more with great joy, I'm glad to have known her and glad that she is where we all hope to see her again.

We didn't live in Chicago in the years Donna Lynn grew up but know any child of my brother Al and S-I-L Ginny had to be awesome. Reports from Grandma Josie kept me appraised of the joy she was. Shes now in her hands of God. Donna Lynn brighten their lives and made it whole. ♥️
