After her retirement, she became an avid quilter whose work is treasured by family and friends. Anyone who knew Donna knows that she delighted in celebrating Christmas; it was her favorite time of the year. She also loved being back in Morrison’s Cove after years away, and was fond of pointing out its beauty to visitors. She spent her time reading, knitting, playing cards, and cooking. She had an affinity for animals, especially her two Yorkshire terriers.
