Donna Cornell Hartz Obituary
Cornell Hartz, Donna
Donna Cornell Hartz, age 84, passed away unexpectedly Sunday, November 1, 2015. She bravely faced colon surgery and was well on the road to recovery before she was called to see her loved ones. Donna was born March 1, 1931 in Chicago to Myna and Arthur Weatherwax. There she met her first love, Paul Cornell, and shared 50 years of marriage and three children. Donna worked in the insurance and cable industries where her tremendous work ethic resulted in numerous awards and recognition. After Paul's death she married her second love, Maurice Hartz of North Dakota. Donna and Maurice had 5 wonderful years before Maurice's passing. Donna was the epitome of a lady with a gentle soul and kind heart. She loved sports, old musicals, Lawrence Welk, Judge Judy, vodka gimlets and spending time with family and friends. Donna is survived by her three children, Daniel, Darrell (Natalie), Debra D'Adamo (Gene); stepson, Brent Hartz (Deborah); six grandchildren and one great-grandchild. The family would like to thank special friends Henry and Mary Crader for their amazing love and support. Private services handled by Messinger Mortuary. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to the Foundation for Blind Children or the Veterans of Foreign Wars.
