Donna N (Ziomek) Laughlin Obituary
Donna N. Laughlin, 61, passed away peacefully at home on Friday, Aug. 12, 2016 after a courageous battle with inflammatory breast cancer. She was surrounded by the love of her family. Donna was born in Manchester on May 24, 1955, daughter of the late Michael and Jennie Ziomek. She graduated from Central High School Class of 1973 and Massachusetts College of Pharmacy Class of 1978. She worked for eighteen years at Garrands Pharmacy until it closed in 1996. She then continued working in the pharmacy at Rite-Aide. Donna had a passion for many things, but first and foremost, her family. She loved working in her gardens and in her home, forever changing things around. She loved playing tennis and golf, and snowmobiling in the winter. She and her husband, Tom, spent many vacations traveling to different parts of the world. She especially loved spoiling her cats, Barney and Damien. She is survived by her husband, Tom; stepson Michael and his wife, Chin Hua; her sister and soul mate, Diane Karcz of Candia; her nephew, Brian and his wife, Danielle, along with great niece and nephew, Anna and Peyton of Raymond; niece Jennifer Heiberg of Candia; and her very special friend, Juan LaValley of Candia. Donna was predeceased by her brother, Dennis in 2012 and her beloved brother-in-law, Joseph Karcz who passed away in 2012. At Donna's request, there will be no calling hours and private services will be held at a later date. The Durning, Bykowski and Young Funeral Home is assisting the family with arrangements.
