Isabel Donato Obituary
Isabel (Fuentes) Donato
Isabel (Fuentes) Donato was unexpectedly called to heaven on September 25, 2014 at 7 AM. She was born in San Pedro, attended Leland Elementary School and Dana Junior High School. She graduated a semester early from San Pedro High School at the end of World War II and hoped to go to college to become a teacher. But life had other things in store for her. While she was working at the roller skating rink in San Pedro, she met her future husband, Antonio (Tony) Donato and they remained married for over 62 years. Isabel and Tony had three children, Jaclyn(Hart), John and Jack. She was active in her children's school and was President of the Mother's Club at Holy Trinity. Isabel was a wonderful seamstress and enjoyed gardening and all types of crafts. She enjoyed reading, going to museums and plays. Later in life, she enjoyed traveling with husband and children. She was one of the luckiest at almost every casino. Isabel loved her family and friends. It could be said that she never met a stranger. She was open and friendly with everyone. Her dimples would sparkle and she would light up with a huge smile if she ran into you. There was always cake and cookies if you stopped by. Don't try to leave the house hungry, she wouldn't hear of it! She is survived by her husband, Tony; daughter, Jaclyn and sons, John and Jack. She is also survived by five grandchildren, Christofer Hart, Jeremy Hart, Melissa Donato, Hanna Donato and Anthony Donato; plus two great granddaughters, as well as numerous nieces and nephews and grand nieces and nephews. Visitation will be Tuesday from 4pm until 7pm with a Rosary to follow at 7pm. A Funeral Mass will be offered Wednesday, 10am at Holy Trinity Catholic Church with interment to follow at Green Hills Memorial Park.
