I am so sorry for the loss of this beautiful person to her family, friends, and all who loved her.

    I’ve known Donna for more years than we both would admit to. She was an enthusiastic coworker who was always up for trying something new with me. She was a thoughtful and empathetic friend. Just a joy to be with. I will miss her but take solace in the memory of our good times together.

    Donna worked with me for many years and we were good friends. She was an amazing business librarian, always willing to try new things, even a new career! She always took things in stride, even adversity, with a sunny positive attitude. We shared a lot of memories and those will console me. My heart goes out to her family and friends.

    Donna became a dear friend through our work together at UMass Lowell. She always went way above and beyond when it came to working with my students on their research, in fact, as we became friends, I noticed that that spirit spilled into every area of her life. Once we learned that we both enjoyed experiencing a day trip to the beach in exactly the same way…we could not get enough! This time together in our retirement was way too short. I appreciated her light-hearted spirit and level-headedness along with her positive attitude. I miss you already so much, Donna; however, I am so grateful for our memories. To her Family and Friends: May all your fond memories of her untiring dedication to you sustain you as well!
