DONNA LOWERY Born November 17, 1926 in Chippewa Falls, Wisconsin, passed away November 28, 2013 (Thanksgiving) in Hemet, CA, surrounded by family. She was the oldest of 7 children. Donna and her husband Gene (married 62 years), moved to Hemet, CA in 1982 from WA state. Together they built The Venture Inn restaurant in Sun City. Then opened another one at State and Stetson in Hemet. They were also very much involved with Ramona Café and Catering at the old Ramona Lanes, Chevy's Diner and the Elks Lodge kitchen, before retiring in 1996.

Mom required total care the last couple of years and was so grateful to her family for providing that care so she could remain at home. Thank you Nick, Jessica, Tyler, Nathan, Garrett, Scott, Sara, Janet and friend Theresa. I would also like to thank Dr. Carvalho (her Dr. of about 30 years), and Charter Hospice (especially Alex LVN). There will be a celebration of life at Lorrie's home at a later time. After that she will be inurned with Dad at Riverside Natl Cemetery. Mom is loved and missed so much. Thank You momma for the greatest gift-your love
