Condolence & Memory Journal

What a sweet lady. Always a smile and kind word. Our family knew Donna forever. Passer's Wells Hatchery was where we as kids first saw Donna. She worked for my dad and Grandpa Passer for so many years, she was an institution. Rest In Peace, Donna.

My deepest sympathy in the loss of Donna. She was such a dear and so very special to my parents, as she worked for my Dad at Peoples State Bank. Hugs and warm wishes.
