For a tribute to someone who was so eloquent with words, there are none that adequately describe the impact that Dona Gower had on thousands and thousands of people...students of all ages. Her determination to instill intellectual engagement in all were both enlightening and challenging and brought true rigor to those who took up her banner. I had the privilege of knowing Dona both professionally and personally...both interactions made me a stronger person. She is an academic icon that will be missed so very much. The teachers of this city have lost a great champion. To Alison, you have her strength and the love of thousands.

"Do not go where the path may lead, go instead where there is no path and leave a trail. - Ralph Waldo Emerson.

Dona did just that. Thank you Dona for lifting so many of us to a higher level of understanding and appreciation for great literature.

Blessings to you Alison for sharing a little of Dona's finale days on earth with those who loved her and always will.

We had the privilege of having Dona in our lives second-hand; through her amazing daughter and frequent stays at Casa Fall River. I only wish I had more chances to discuss controversial literary stances with her, but we all at least bonded on landscape endeavors and the combination of salmon and curry. Because she was awesome like that.

Thank you Dona for giving me a love of literature and new insights into books. Your classes were one of the highights of my aging years Jean Laughlin

Such a voice for the true art of teaching has been silenced and will be sorely missed. Her passion for the classics was evident and she shared her vision of how great literature from all ages and cultures can enrich all our lives. She will be missed.
My deepest sympathy to you Alison, in your sorrow.

Godspeed, Dona. Your passion for wisdom and your unwavering love for teachers will forever be with those of us lucky enough to have studied with you.
