Dona was many things to many people. First and foremost, she was a Godly woman and is now in Heaven celebrating with her oldest son, Michael. She was a loving wife, mother, and Nanny who gave her life to helping others and was a faithful member of First Baptist Bossier until poor health hindered her attendance.

Dona was a loving Christian woman who will be deeply missed!
