The family would like to extend a special thank you to the numerous talented and compassionate medical professionals who took care of Donna over the years and especially during these most difficult few months, including her grandson-in-law, Dr. Answer Jaffri of Terre Haute, Indiana.
Graveside services will be held on Saturday, September 11, 2021, at 12 pm at Oakland Cemetery in Montezuma with Rev. Keith McIntyre officiating.
In lieu of flowers, the family requests donations to be made in her name to the Parke-Vermillion Humane Society or any such charity for animals.  We are blessed to carry on Donna’s love for animals in our own lives and hope that, like her smile, her compassion for all of God’s creatures will continue to inspire those of us still here.
