Donna worked for Heartland Medical Center, Farmland Industries, North Kansas City Hospital, Platte Valley Bank and she was currently the manager for the Gower Domiciliary.
She had an incredible gift and talent for crafting and a passion for baking and cooking. She was a perfectionist and spent many hours decorating her cookies and cupcakes for birthdays, baby and wedding showers, Carly’s volleyball team and any other occasion. If you gave her a theme, she would always deliver above and beyond your expectations. Donna loved riding motorcycles, anything Harley and the KC Chiefs. Most of all, Donna never missed an activity and was her family’s #1 Fan.
