Donna lived in the West Roxbury, Roslindale and Jamica Plain area all of her life and was well known and loved by many.
For many years Donna worked at "The Pleasant Cafe" where she was well like by all of her co-workers and guests.
She often said that working at The Pleasant was like having a second family.
Donna easily made friends everywhere she went and would speak to anyone she came in contact with.
We will all miss her vibrant personality and friendly disposition.
Donna will be remembered as a fun loving/warm/genuine person who was known for her witty comments and infectious laugh.
We wish Donna eternal peace. May God Bless her always!!!!
