On Tuesday, August 5, 2014, Donna R. Otto, passed away, after a courageous battle with pancreatic cancer. She is the daughter of Laura Mae Darnell and John R. Bencho. Born January 12, 1946, in Klamath Falls, Oregon, she lived her early life in McKees Rocks, PA and later was a resident of Pittsburgh's Allegheny West. Donna started her professional life with various levels of employment. Ultimately, she built a very successful career at Diskriter Corp., where she eventually ran the sales department. She became a proficient self- taught tennis athlete, ultimately becoming the most accomplished player at the Greentree Racquet Club. Later, Donna focused her attention on golf, playing her last round on Friday, August 1, 2014. She is survived by her devoted husband, Gary; her daughter, Lonice Wells (Keith), Cindy Musselman; her stepson, Aaron Otto; sister, Laura Artinger (Robert); and beloved grandchildren, Layla Raye Musselman, Wynn Musselman, and Laura Wells, who became the joy of her later life. She is also survived by a very large number of friends and extended family, who found her friendship, love and wise counsel instrumental in their own lives. She will be deeply missed.
