I remember a wonderful loving Aunt who was very kind and caring to my sister Judy and me everytime we went back to Mt. Ayr to visit. She taught me many things about life and caring. A beautiful lady with a huge and beautiful heart.

Donnie was my 'mother's roommate at Clearview and I always appreciated that she looked after Mother's safety.
