She was a strong, loving, and compassionate woman. She was a consummate caregiver who made sure everyone around her was taken care of, sometimes before her own needs. She enjoyed spending time with her children and grandchildren.

Other than her parents, she was preceded in death by two grandsons, Aaron and Michael and a brother, Richard Lucicosky.

The family has entrusted Donna’s care to the Kubina-Yuhasz-Wasko Funeral Home, where they will receive friends from 5:00 – 7:00 p.m. on Friday, December 16, 2022.
