Donna Marie Allies Obituary
Donna Marie Allies
Resident of San Jose
Donna Marie Allies passed from this worldly life on March 31, 2014 at age 67. Donna was born June 6, 1946 – the daughter of Michael Kitun and Mary Kitun (Bonner). She attended grade school in the Bronx and graduated from Cathedral High School entering Hunter College in Manhattan.
During the summer of her third year at Hunter she worked at Los Angeles County Medical Center, and returned to LA Med Center after receiving a BS in Nursing from Hunter. In 1970 she met Mitch Allies and they were married a year later. During the first two years of their marriage Donna received a Masters Degree from UCLA as a nurse-practitioner. Later that year, Mitch's employment changed and they moved to the Bay Area where they have resided since 1974. She worked many years as a Public Health Nurse in Santa Clara County where she enjoyed the work and friends she made. Donna spent her career advocating for those in need, while in her private life she had a quick wit and sense of humor. We will remember her for these qualities.
Donna is survived by her husband, Mitch Allies, two daughters, Cynthia Beckmann and Karen Allies. She was preceded in death by two brothers, Michael Kitun of Washington DC and Bruce Kitun of the NYC area.
