Donna always welcomed me with warmth into her home while growing up. I will remember being a part of the family, sitting at her table...the readings and prayers and chicken dinners. I will always remember her wholehearted laugh that was often accompanied by a snort. I loved that about her.

She instilled her love and talents of music into her daughters, which I always admired. I appreciated her enthusiasm for music which inspired me as well.

I will always be there for your daughters, Donna. Thank you, for everything.

With love,

I met Donna in Salinas, Ca, where we both were singing in the Presbyterian Church Choir. Donna had a beautiful alto voice and sang many solos. It was there that Donna and Wayne met and were later married. Then ArduthI became her sister-in-law. We shared many happy family occasions over the years. Donna is missed.

I'm so sorry to see this news. I'm a college friend of Nancy's; one of my best college friends was Donna's niece, Susan Ponting Kim. My sincerest condolences to Wayne, Nancy and Traci. May you all be comforted by the happy memories during this difficult time.

Donna’s smile was so joyful a greeting while caring for brightened my mornings. I enjoyed watching Food Network with her and would change it to football whenever there was a game. She loved her SeaHawks.
