  1. I am so sorry to hear of Dona’s passing. She was truly a great person and a good friend to all who knew her. I especially remember the meetings at her home, her mom’s home and most of all our friendship through the 1st Congregational Church of Fulton. She was always a valued member of our congregation.

    an old friend, Phyllis Langdon

  2. Very sorry to learn about Dona’s passing. I will always remember her remarkable smile and her optimism particularly when she was fighting cancer here in Central New York. She was a very nice person. Condolences to her family.
