This world has lost a very precious person to many people. Heaven has gained a "top-notch" Angel. I have so many memories that I will cherish forever. I would spend time with Aunt Donna and Patrick in the summer, as a child/young teen. We would go to Little League games, Sandy Bottom, and ride around in her Mustang. I can remember going to the bowling alley and so many camping trips, Kettle Creek, etc. May this beautiful lady rest in peace, reunited with Uncle Ed and many other family members gone before her. Patrick, my thoughts and prayers are with you. I am a phone call away!!! Oh, just a quick memory ..Aunt Donna would not drive across the little bridge at my Grandma Gardner's house. We would all be over there for a "reunion" picnic style, and my dad would have to go get her on the other side of the little bridge that went over the creek....I still smile when I think about that.

Our deepest sympathy's to all the family.
We met Donna many many years ago at Roxys wedding. We came over from England to Florida for holidays and were welcomed not only by the wonderful Dunn family but also the whole family.
Donna welcomed the “Crazy English couple” she was a wonderful lady and we had many laughs and jokes.
When we returned a few years later for Harolds wedding we met up again with all the family including Donna of course. This time she had made a lot of the ladies beautiful tablecloths, mine was a blue check one which I treasure, something that was made and given with love and kindness.
Heaven is going to gain an exceptional angel. Rest in peace beautiful lady our lives were truly enriched by knowing you.
For ever in our hearts
D&T

Donna was one heck of a softball player and a great sport. I never heard the lady say one nasty word about anyone...It's has been a few years since we played but the memories are still there. Berry's Babes!!! Hold first base open for me Donna, this Turner Motors rival will be arriving in the not so distant future......I hope God gives me a little more speed to round the bases ;)
