In 2009, I was so happy to be student teaching at Passow, where I met Donna. I had the pleasure of working in the district for a few years and was privileged to be in the presence of a dedicated educator, loving mother, and gracious friend. I will always remember her smile, her enthusiasm for sports, and the love for her children. God bless her.

I am thankful to have worked with Donna for the past several years. Her dedication to her family, friends, and students was apparent. I especially enjoyed hearing stories about her boys and her grand girls. She was so dedication to her family. Donna amazed me how active she was. She wasn´t one for sitting still or taking time to slow down. I loved hearing about new restaurants she tried, game nights with her friends, and travels. Donna was an amazing teacher who will forever be missed. I feel grateful to have had her in my life. Donna was taken too soon, but until we meet again may she watch over all of us as we navigate through this life and remind us that every moment is an opportunity for happiness. Rest peacefully.

It was truly a blessing to work with Donna at District 84. She was kind, funny, and generous. One of my favorite memories of her is when she played peak-a-boo each more with one of our preschool students. She made such an impact in everyone's lives she touched My deepest condolences
