Donna enjoyed watching "General Hospital," listening to country music, especially Toby Keith, and going to cookouts to spend time with her family. She was the biggest fan of Elvis Presley, collecting Elvis memorabilia, and even had his picture on her phone. Her family might say she was a little obsessed. She will be missed by all who loved her.
She was preceded in death by her parents; husband; and grandson, Taylor Wernett.
