For over 30 years, Donna was an emergency room nurse at Heritage Valley Hospital (formerly Sewickley Valley) and will be remembered fondly for her kindness and caring of her patients. Having been a patient herself for the last 10 years. Donna never forgot the extensive training and was aware of what was expected by staff and patient. Her love for the profession was only exceeded by her love for her son and daughter. Her ever present smile, smart sarcasm, and goofy grin toward the end will be forever embedded in our hearts. The people who knew Donna and cared for her most were the staff of Masonic Village. They took care of her and adopted her into their family as many of them were with her throughout her illness. There will be a void in their hearts and mostly the hearts of her Children and her Sister. The family would like to thank Masonic and Amedisys Hospice for their care during these last few weeks.
